Bret Hart's WWE DVD

Bret “Hit Man” Hart: The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be

Bret Hart: The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and The Best There Ever Will Be is the long-awaited dream come true for all Hitman fans. I am not going to go into the details of what is on the DVD but I will say that every match, every extra and every moment on the DVD is for the most part incredibly satisfying. There are a few things I would have liked to see like some match commentary (I would love to hear some comments on those Bulldog/Foundations tag matches), and maybe some more in-depth and pointed questions regarding the end of his career and his WCW days. One thing I did not like seeing was the choice of people asked to comment about Hart (Benoit was fine but Animal? Lombardi? Christian?) Granted, Jay Reso is Canadian and a great performer but he wasn't even in the WWE with Hart. And Animal? Did the Road Warriors even ever face the Hart Foundation more than once or twice? The most aggravating thing is the smoke and mirrors WWE and maybe even Hart are still putting up. Why wasn't Michaels quoted? What about Triple H? He was chatty like a little school girl about Warrior and he only had ONE match with him!? Triple H was closer to the 'conspiracy' of Montreal '97 than anybody is willing to give him credit for. That is neither here nor there; I would just like to see ALL parties involved sit down and tell it as it happened and not try to spin it is alagory or miscommunication or even to get over it. But that, my friends, is something we will most likely not ever see and to be honest, I have to wonder if it is anybody's business but the people involved.

The main program is fascinating and engaging and minus a few little 'WTF?!' moments (everytime Vince McMahon said's like "Yeah, Vince, we get it... if Hart doesn't do what you want then The Rock....I mean Stone Cold... wait... I mean Brock Lesnar...{insert name here} will be the best ever).

As a Bret Hart fan, I grabbed this DVD without a moments hesitation, I even tried to meet him at a signing (as well as hundreds of other fans) and I can't explain the feeling I got being able to revisit my favorite time in the wrestling industry and I even got to see The Man himself albeit 30 feet or so away from me BUT regardless, it is a MUST for Hart fans, wrestling fans and even people who have never watched wrestling.

In conclusion, besides a few open ends, this DVD offers things that Hitman fans have been waiting for since November '97. Hart comes across very well and it definately shows that Hart wasn't cocky or full of himself, he said a couple of times that he wasn't hungry for money, he was hungry for respect. Looking at the way the wrestlers are low-balled, discarded or made legends just to be 'killed' off, even the most hardened anti-Hart people have to admit that maybe this guy was on to something.

I digress. I will break it down real time for ya.... Hart DVD REAL good... go buy.
Thank you for the opportunity to write this review and I have many more to go! If you liked this, just wait until you see my review of all DVDs big and small that relate to our heroes, villains and all in between.
