Hart on Returning to Montreal for RAW, Is Wrestling a Sport?, More

– WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart spoke with The Montreal Gazette about returning to Montreal on Monday for RAW, the first time since the Montreal Screwjob. Here are some quotes:

Returning to Montreal:
“Over the years … in the last couple of years anyways, since we sort of got back on good terms again, I always thought: ‘I wonder what will happen when they’re in Montreal … whenever that happens, it will be a Monday Night RAW eventually … they’ll have to think that maybe it would be a good idea to bring me into that. I didn’t expect it in some ways and wondered if it would ever happen, and here it is. It’s truly a special night that I’ve been waiting for since the Screwjob, and it would be great to put a better cap on things.”

Is wrestling a sport?
“Clearly wrestling is not exactly a sport. Nobody should consider wrestling a pure sport anyway.”

Did he see any of himself in Mickey Rourke’s The Wrestler?
“I really didn’t see that much of myself in there at all, other than the fact that I did kind of relate to the fact that if I went back to wrestling for real, I’d probably be putting my life in danger. I think one more knock on the head for me might be the last one. Even for me walking or slipping on ice is kind of a big fear. I have to be really careful with my pumpkin these days.”

    Punk Hitman Heyman same time in the ring would be a picture perfect and Montreal crowd is that them good to give any promo’s or match a hype can wait to see all of that !

    Punk and hart are buds and Bret mentioned ina recent interview that he sees a lot of similarities between harts position in the company in 1997 and punks position now. Plus punk has been donning the pink tights in a nod to Bret so im expecting some kind of angle wit them aligning. Would be unreal!
