Watch Wrestling With Shadows Online

BRET LOOK OUT

If you’ve never seen Wrestling With Shadows, it’s probably the greatest documentary ever made about professional wrestling.  A Canadian camera crew followed Bret Hart for a year from 1996-1997 and was given unprecedented access backstage to the then-WWF.  They thought Bret would be retiring or heading to WCW at the end of their year of filming.  What they didn’t know was that they would be capturing on film the most notorious and monumental real-life screw job in professional wrestling history, and the event that ultimately led to the death of kayfabe and the birth of professional wrestling as sports entertainment.

I urge anyone who has not seen this film to check it out here: http://www.nfb.ca/film/hitman_hart_wrestling_with_shadows/

Forrest Griffin < Bret Hart

August 3, 2009

Forrest Griffin heads to a Borders in Las Vegas to try and strongarm shoppers into buying his new autobiography.  Unfortunately, some people seem more interested in buying Bret Hart’s book, because Bret is a better fake fighter than Griffin is a real one.  Score one for professional wrestling!

Ric Flair: “Who is Bret Hart?”

Ric Flair still inexplicably taking shots at Bret Hart, this time on Canada’s Live Audio Wrestling.

“He has the nerve to compare himself to me! Let’s get realistic. If you put Bret Hart in your left hand and me in your right hand, compare the career…who is he?

“I wrestled everybody in the business, for an hour each night. Harley Race, Dory Funk, Jack and Jerry Brisco, who is Bret Hart?

“He is a legend in his own mind. He lives in his own little world…he screws his own family around. Who is Bret Hart?

“In my world he is a nobody!”

Everyone who’s not insane understands both men were great performers. Hart led the WWF during some of the company’s most challenging years financially, losing his top spot when the business started to turn around under Stone Cold Steve Austin. While Flair lost the wrestling war to Hulk Hogan in the 1980’s, he drew big houses around the world with some of the best matches of all-time.
