WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart is one of the most legendary pro wrestlers in the history of the business. He is also a controversial wrestler and very opinionated, which hasn’t always worked out well for him. It seems he had an interesting career goal before pro wrestling.
There is no doubt that Bret Hart has a deep love for pro wrestling and appreciates it as an art form. There are also similarities between pro wrestling and cinema in general, especially from a production standpoint.
While speaking with Calgary Sun, Bret Hart discussed the career goals he wanted to accomplish before becoming a pro wrestler. Hart revealed that he wanted to be a director.
“I never saw myself as an actor. I always wanted to be a movie director. I had bigger plans.
In a lot of ways, I ended up being a guy making little 15 to 20 minute movies each night as a wrestler. I was a stunt coordinator, director, and producer of an epic wrestling match. Wrestling turned into that career I never had as a movie maker. I got to tell these great stories as a wrestler.”
Bret Hart had a terrific career with amazing highs and terrible lows, but through it all he always maintained his love for professional wrestling and that’s what matters in the end.
