Bret "The Hitman" Hart is arguably the greatest technical wrestler of all time, and he has left behind a legacy in the WWE that will always be remembered.

Hart has discussed his career in the WWE on more than one occasion, and it's always interesting to hear him speak about the business of professional wrestling.

In a recent interview with Arda Ocal and theScore, a major Canadian sports network, Hart sat down with Ocal and commented on various aspects of his career.

Here are some excerpts:

Hart discusses his appearance in the 20-man battle royal at WrestleMania 2, his first appearance at a WrestleMania:

It was interesting. They always had something different then each one. The three cities, and the wrestlers watching the pay-per-view, I was in Chicago. What I always remember most was Andre and the battle royal. He [Andre The Giant] really hated the football players. He didn't like any of them. He kinda made a point of being more friendlier with guys like me and Jim "The Anvil." He was always doing what he could to make us look good, which worked out of us.

Hart comments on the worst injury he suffered as a pro wrestler:

At [the 1995] Survivor Series, I took out the Spanish announcer [as he fell into their table]. I blew his knee out with my head. They should have took him away in a ambulance, he was all messed up, in great pain. I feel terrible about it. I hurt that poor Spanish commentator. I always felt really bad about it he was a really nice guy. I think I really messed his knee up.

Hart is known throughout the professional wrestling world for his involvement in the "Montreal Screwjob" incident that occurred in November 1997. 

Throughout his career in pro wrestling, Hart had his share of controversy and heartache, but no once can argue what he has done for the WWE and for professional wrestling.
