Rivarlies in pro wrestling are common, but you wouldn't necessarily suspect it with brothers. The Hart Family is a different breed. I conducted an interview with Bruce Hart, the older brother of former WWE Champion and Hall of Famer Bret Hart. Bruce had an interesting take on his brother:

I have the utmost respect for Bret as a worker. I've actually done a lot for Bret and I'm not taking any bows for any of his credits for whatever he has achieved. I think truth be known, Bret's a bit of a mark for himself. It's something some people become. He was more for himself than anyone else, which is fine I guess. In the wrestling business in a way, it's a team thing.

Everyone benefits from the guys there your working with. You can't do it all by yourself. I think sometimes, Bret lost sight if that. Even with Montreal, I felt that both Bret and Vince, neither one of them did the wrestling business justice with the way they handled it. Bret was disenchanted with my take on that. I have a lot of respect for Bret, but he's sometimes more for himself than anyone else. That's probably his biggest fault.

Are Bruce's comments correct about the WWE Hall of Famer?
