WWE Hall of Famer and Canadian legend Bret Hart has received his very own plaque in a special ceremony to commemorate his place on Canada’s Walk of Fame.
Bret Hart’s wrestling roots go back a generation to his father Stu Hart who competed and latterly owned Calgary’s Stampede Wrestling. It was in the famed Hart family dungeon that The Hitman cut his teeth as a pro wrestler and in 1984 he ventured to WWE where he initially made his name as a tag team star alongside brother-in-law Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart.
WWE Tag Team Championship gold lay in The Hart Foundation’s future but greater success was to come for Bret Hart as a singles star in the company. Bret Hart won his first Intercontinental Championship in 1991 and a year later he captured the first of five WWE Championships in the company when he defeated Ric Flair.
Back in December 2021, Bret Hart was officially inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame. Much like its Hollywood counterpart, inductees onto the Walk of Fame are given a star that is displayed in Toronto to celebrate their achievements.
Now in a special ceremony in Hart’s hometown of Calgary at the Victoria Pavillion which used to house Stampede Wrestling shows, The Best There Is, The Best There Was, And The Best There Ever Will Be has received a plaque to commemorate his induction to Canada’s Walk of Fame.
Congrats to Bret “Hitman” Hart, who received his plaque from Canada’s Walk Of Fame today in Calgary.
The ceremony has held at the Victoria Pavilion, which used to host Stampede Wrestling events.
Bret hoped it would take place there when I asked him about it back in June. pic.twitter.com/XMVjTCla9x
