* VerbalTic: Whenever referring to his brother OwenHart, he would always do so as "My brother Owen", never just "Owen", even in the instances when they were standing three feet from each other and it would be obvious to everyone who he was referring to. To be fair, Owen did the same thing with Bret.

* LetsSeeYouDoBetter: Vince's retaliation to the aforementioned ''[=WrestleMania=] XXVI'' beatdown was to get back at Hart by...promoting him to General Manager so he could see if it was that easy to be the boss and be able to make important decisions and sacrifices not everyone would like. He someone destroyed his point by firing Hart at the first minor sign of a mishap however (possibly because they didn't want to humanize the actions that screwed his career ''too'' much).

* Foreshadowing: During the build up to WrestleMania XII, one of the episodes of Monday Night Raw had an in ring promo of Hart and Shawn Michaels - who at this point at least respected each other - verbally sparring, only to have (kayfabe) acting commissioner Roddy Piper declare that their match would he the 60 minute Iron Man Match. Piper had the final word: "Shake hands now, boys, cause you're gonna hate each other when it's over!" If he only knew...

** For longer than anyone else, his big sister Ellie (Natalya's mother). According to the book ''Pain and Passion: The History of Stampede Wrestling'' they never got along. She's the only one of his eleven siblings whom he never seems to say anything good about in his book, ''Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling''. At least this hatred hasn't passed on to Nattie, who is very close to Bret.

'''Bret "The Hitman" Hart''' was one of the biggest stars of ProfessionalWrestling in the '90s and is simultaneously one of the most technically gifted performers to ever step into a wrestling ring '''and''', in the last years of his career, one of the most troubled and tortured personalities in the history of the industry.

Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}, Bret was a member of the Hart WrestlingFamily and was trained by his father Stu in the famous "Hart Dungeon". Easily the most successful member of the family, he is a double Triple Crown Champion. He is a 5x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-h.html WWE Champion]], a 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/ic.html WWE Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion]], a 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-t.html WWE World Tag Team Champion]] with brother-in-law Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, a 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwf-us-h.html WWE United States Heavyweight Champion]], a 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Champion]], a 4x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-us-h.html WCW United States Heavyweight Champion]] and a 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-t.html WCW World Tag Team Champion]] with Wrestling/{{Goldberg}}.

After Wrestling/TheNastyBoys defeated the Hart Foundation for the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-t.html WWE World Tag Team Titles]] at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} VII'' in 1991, Bret [[BreakupBreakout launched]] a successful singles career. At ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}} 91'', he defeated [[Wrestling/CurtHennig Mr. Perfect]] for the WWE Intercontinental Heavyweight Title, his first singles title in the WWF. By ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 92'', he had defeated Wrestling/RicFlair for his first of five [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-h.html WWE World Heavyweight Titles]]. His first reign ended at the hands of Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}} at ''Wrestlemania IX,'' but in the ensuing craziness that was 1993 WWF, it quickly became apparent that Bret was the most popular wrestler in the company. In 1994, at ''Wrestlemania X,'' he won the title back from Yokozuna and cemented himself as the top {{Face}} in the WWF, then spent the rest of the year in a bitter rivalry with his brother, [[Wrestling/OwenHart "The Rocket" Owen Hart.]]

He would be [[DemotedToExtra pushed into the background]] in 1995 due to Wrestling/TheKliq's [[WagTheDirector reign of terror backstage]]. Even after he ended [[Wrestling/KevinNash Diesel (Kevin Nash)]]'s financially disastrous year-long title reign at ''Survivor Series 95'', it was already set that he would be dropping the title four months later to Wrestling/ShawnMichaels at ''[=WrestleMania=] XII.'' According to a variety of accounts, including their own, the backstage grudge between Bret and Shawn started around that time. After ''[=WMXII=]'', Bret took time off to contemplate his future. He returned in November to kick off the feud that would '''make''' Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin's career, and transform Bret's forever. Bret d. Austin at ''Survivor Series 96'', but the feud continued, culminating in a submission match at ''[=WrestleMania=] XIII'', which saw [[FaceHeelDoubleTurn Austin become a huge face, and Bret become a Heel]], after having been one of the company's top faces since 1988. Bret recruited his brother Owen and brother-in-law [[Wrestling/DaveyBoySmith the British Bulldog]], with brother-in-law Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart and family friend [[Wrestling/BrianPillman "The Loose Cannon" Brian Pillman]] joining later, in a [[PowerStable new version of the Hart Foundation,]] as Bret became, for the first and only time in his career, a ForeignWrestlingHeel who denounced America and spoke of Canada being better. This ultimately led to the Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob and Bret's departure for Wrestling/{{WCW}}.

Bret was poorly used in WCW, never again attaining the levels of success of his WWF run and his stint would be marred by the death of his younger brother Wrestling/OwenHart. His career eventually ended in 2000 due to a severe concussion suffered in a match with Wrestling/{{Goldberg}}. A stroke two years later, after a motorcycle accident, would ensure he would never wrestle again. Three years later, Bret resurfaced for a WWE Hall Of Fame induction prior to ''Wrestlemania 21.''

Bret would make an official return to what is now Wrestling/{{WWE}} in 2010, making sporadic appearances in a (mostly) non-wrestling role at pay-per-views and ''[[Wrestling/{{WWERaw}} Raw]]''... but not before having one last feud with Vince leading up to ''Wrestlemania 26.''

** Wrestling/ShawnMichaels. On 1/4/10, they buried the hatchet on RAW. When Shawn retired later after Wrestlemania 26, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a03ZMBIGxOU&feature=related thanked Bret Hart]] [[CueTheFlyingPigs for putting up with him]] backstage. By that point it was clear that both wrestlers were on speaking terms once again.
** Wrestling/AllenCoage (Bad News Brown in the WWF) was possibly Bret Hart's worst enemy. Bad News has commented in many interviews that Bret was the most difficult wrestler he ever worked with. And Bret Hart has called Bad News his nemesis (the only person he refers to as this in his book.) Unlike Wrestling/ShawnMichaels, they never buried the hatchet, although this is possibly because Bad News died in 2007.

** Bret's never-ending little jabs at [[Wrestling/TripleH Hunter]] in shoots. It's a mutual relationship: When Austin asked Hunter about Bret on his podcast, Hunter's lukewarm response was [[DamnedByFaintPraise "He's a good technician".]] (Haitch was on the booking committee during the year lead up to Montreal, and Bret didn't ''quite'' agree with the edgy shift in direction.) This was back when Wrestling/TheKliq were practically running the show, which doesn't help matters. The animosity still continues to this day -- while they ''can'' be civil with each other, it's very clear that Bret still nurses a grudge against him. It's generally agreed upon that you can trust Bret to give an unbiased view of something only if it is unattached to Hunter completely. For example, the 2016 Wrestling/RoyalRumble. Everyone regarded both the titular match and the PPV in general as a ''significant'' improvement over the last two years. Bret, however, called this the worst Royal Rumble of all time, even though the last two ended with severe XPacHeat for the winners and this one had the debut of [[spoiler:Wrestling/AJStyles]]. Considering precedent, you could easily make the conjecture that Bret regarded it as such because Hunter happened to win the Rumble that year and win his fourteenth world title in the process. The fans weren't exactly happy about that either but they were willing to live with it since the rest of the PPV and the match were okay and the winner actually fit storyline purposes.

[[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence And you don't know why?]] That's been the case with Ric and Bret for a long time. Most recently, Bret was on Ric's podcast, and Ric spoke about he never had a beef with Bret apart from... just not liking him.
