Bret Hart is no stranger to accolades. Many have called him the Best There Is, The Best There Was, and the Best There Ever Will Be other than himself. He recently received another honor and he sees it as a higher achievement than the WWE Hall of Fame.
The Hitman is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer. He is in the HOF by himself and as part of the Hart Foundation. This is a big deal for any wrestler, but Bret Hart sees Canada’s Walk Of Fame as a higher honor.
While speaking to News Channel 3, Bret Hart opened up about this subject and he broke things down a bit.
“In the WWE, I’ve been in a Hall of Fame twice, which has always meant a lot to me. But this is higher or bigger than that because it represents the whole country.”
“In my days in the WWE as the world champion, it’s part of your job to meet a lot of Make-a-Wish kids, meet a lot of kids that have far bigger problems than you could ever imagine,” Hart recalled. “It’s a humbling thing to be a television hero as I was for so many years on TV every Saturday from Canada. The wrestling hero I portrayed myself to be was somebody that I ultimately became. I believed in that person and I found strength in that person, didn’t I? I found strength in the fans that cheered me on for all those years and felt that they’re always in my corner, always backing me up.”
We’ll have to see how Bret Hart is honored next, because there are still more ways to recognize his greatness. Only time will tell if he can squeeze out a third WWE Hall of Fame induction, but it might not change his opinion that Canada’s Walk of Fame is a bigger deal.
