Bret Hart’s ex-wife Julie Hart recently spoke with Kayfabe Kickout. Here are some highlights from the interview.
The Montreal Screwjob: “So much has been said about that night, but there was just so much tension going on in general both in our marriage and wrestling as a whole. 1997 was the breaking point for wrestling and in many ways, my marriage with Bret. Outside of real-life tragedies such as Owen’s death and his stroke, that was the hardest night of Bret’s life for sure.”
Her upcoming autobiography, Hart Strings – My Life with the Hitman, the Hart Family and Me: “The book will be as honest as Bret’s book, but focus more on my life story, not Bret’s. The book reveals my life growing up as a foster kid, then the story of how Bret and I became involved and raising our family. It’s not going to be like Linda Hogan’s book that’s for sure!”
If she still keeps up with wrestling: “My favorite wrestler of all time was Randy Savage. I get a lot of emails from fans just checking in on the family, asking about Bret and general chatter that usually has some lineage to wrestling. I watch on occasion, and my kids were really into it when they were little of course, so I watched it more then.”
Hart also discussed meeting Stu Hart for the first time, if she was a wrestling fan before she met Bret and if she still keeps in touch with “The Hitman.”
