With Hart it's probably to try sort out the issues surrounding the release of his DVD. The fact the only thing Bret wants is a "I'm sorry Bret, I was wrong but I did what I thought I had to at the time" but hasn't got it in 8 years and it has taken the release of a DVD to motivate Vince to finally reach out is kind of sad.

God, hopefully with Dusty, it's just HOF. I don't want him booking.

--WWE.com reported Dusty Rhodes meeting with Stephanie McMahon today. We have no other details other than the company has been adding a lot of writers of late, but it's also known they want him for their legends program. Rhodes has floated to WWE being interested in working on the writing end since he was fired/quit by TNA as an on-air performer

I am almost positive that Dusty is there strictly for Hall of Fame reasons UNLESS it is for consideration for OVW!!!! However, most of the talk in the Observer about Dusty and WWE is that Dusty has declined the HoF this year because of Hogan overshadowing everyone and he feels he has a better shot to be placed higher next year without Hogan around.

Slightly OT:

 

Bret was apparently on the plane yesterday that skidded off the runway in Toronto and burst into flames.

 

Meltz mentions that his plane skidded yesterday in Toronto but does NOT confirm that this is the one that burned up.

That woulda been funny. "Vince lost it and started strangling the legendary canadian grappler. All that could be heard from the CEOs office were screams of "I'm Vince Mcmahon, DAMMIT~!"

 

 

 

Lemme ask yall question why was Bret Hart so over when he first got a major push?

 

Im talking like, 1991-1994. His character wasnt paticularly engaging, and he kind of got on alot of peoples nerves. In retrospect, I can see that hes an excellent in ring performer. But did alot of WWF fans at the time notice that, this was the wwf and not the NWA. More emphaisis was put on character and angle instead of lenghty wrestling exhibitions. All Bret Hart seemed to do at the time was go out say something to the effect of "I do my job really well, watch me." Is that why he was so popular? With more heroic and entertaining figures around at the time, how'd the greasy haired tag wrestler who talked to much get in such good graces with the fans. Now sugars, Im not talking about just in Canada either. Why was Bret Hart so over in the early 90s?

Firstly, you're biasing yourself by calling him a greasy haired tag wrestler. I think he just did everything very well. He had great matches with the likes of Mr. Perfect while still effectively a tag team performer, and while he'd been in the Hart Foundation there'd been a heap of great matches with teams like the Bulldogs, Demolition, and the rest. He was just really good at what he did and it showed through.

Bret was over because he was a cool guy and was put over strongly by the announcers. He always gave kids sunglasses in the crowd. Never underestimate how much having audience participation as part of the normal schtick can help a wrestler get over. They seem to have forgotten that.

Hart/WWE deal announced

 

 

[email protected]

 

WWE.com stated Bret Hart had agreed to be part of the DVD on his life, which was evident when he had remained in Stamford after the first day.

 

We have more on the background of how this came to be, how the DVD is being changed, and what other business opportunities the company has talked with him about in Monday's issue, as well as what were the key items in his making the deal.

 

 

Hopefully this means that at least they'll change the name of the DVD from "Screwed" to something less disrespectful.

I guess Vince finally said sorry. I do hope this leads to Bret getting some time on the mic on a future show to finally say boodbye properly. His previous WWA efforts apparently went down well so the least they can do is give him decent time at next year's Wrestlemania's HOF induction ceremony.

 

As for why he got over in the nineties, everything he did was crisp, made sense in terms of the match and he got good matches out of all levels of opponents. There is the infamous match where he carried a bodybuilder Vince wanted to sign on a house show but when Vince saw him in a second match he realised Bret had made the match, not "Mega Man" and as a result realised what he had in Bret. He was not the best talker but he was passionate and concise 90% of the time and did the business in the ring night in and night out and he got over for being a great all round talent who did his best for the fans.

If HBK beats Hogan at Summerslam and claims to be the best in the business, I could imagine see it happening on Raw, given they have brought out Tatanka, Jake Roberts and others in the last few months for shock value.
