brilliant and heartfelt - a true star until the end,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hitman Hart Wrestling With Shadows [DVD] (DVD)
i was a huge WWF fan in the late eighties and early ninties and bret hart was my favourite from the beginning. i stopped watching wrestling in 1995 as i grew out of it and recently decided to re-kindle my youth and firstly needed to find out what happended to my favourite. i'd heard rumours that bret was double-crossed but when i watched this i was left furious that he could be treated like that by Vince who had basically hung him out to dry and destroyed his reputation in the process. the dvd is very heartfelt and gives you a brilliant insight into brets life, growing up with a legend of a father and growing in the WWF. it also shows his home life and that he appears to have a supportive wife who later divorced him after the survivor series incident, but does show what a great dad he is and how his family mean a lot. the dvd covers the tension leading up to that fateful servivor series and how bret was not feeling happy, you can feel his emotion, and then feel his anger once the double cross has happened and i'm so pleased he punched vince, which was the least he deserved. all in all a great dvd, its just a shame it had to end on such a bitter note.

Hi Karina , like you i was a big WWF fan , mostly because my two sons got me into it. I really enjoyed it and Bret was one of our favourites. We saw him many times when the WWF came to England. We also met Bret at the Hotel in London where the wrestlers were staying and he was a really nice guy , chatting with fans , posing for photos and signing autographs. I agree with you Bret was screwed by McMahon and did not deserve the treatment he received. It was a sad end to a great career where he won every title going. But Bret has come through it all and lived to tell the tale. Regards Mike.
