Bret Hart Hints At Match With McMahon At WrestleMania

Matt Boone

The following is an excerpt from an article from The Vancouver Sun:

But last Monday on World Wrestling Entertainment’s flagship TV program, WWE Raw, Calgary’s world-famous son appeared on the show for the first time in more than 12 years.

"It was a bizarre night. It was surreal," said the 52-year-old Hart when contacted by the Calgary Herald. "I kept asking myself if I was really there."

Serving as guest host, Hart was met with a tidal wave of cheers from fans at Dayton, Ohio’s Nutter Center as he settled old scores with old rivals The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels and WWE chairman Vince McMahon, central figures in his bitter split.

In a surprise twist, Hart and Michaels agreed to bury the hatchet, even embracing in the middle of the ring.

Later in the show, Hart and McMahon also came to a gentlemanly truce. That is, until McMahon — in the time-honoured tradition of pro wrestling heels — delivered the cheap shot, a boot to the groin that left Hart on his knees.

In the ongoing soap opera that drives the wrestling world, this was the spilling of first blood, setting a new storyline in motion. It’s a feud that will tentatively come to a head at this year’s WrestleMania at the end of March, if all goes according to plan.

"I hate to tell you what’s going to happen," says Hart. "I don’t want to ruin it for anybody."

Nor would the Hitman comment when asked whether he is physically capable of wrestling in the ring, given his medical history — although he did interject: "I don’t mind throwing a few punches (at McMahon)."
