Bret Hart returned this week to the delight of many WWE fans. It had been about a month since his first came back to WWE only to be humiliated by Vince McMahon. Knowing that Bret Hart had signed a contract with WWE until Wrestlemania we could only speculate as to how the storyrline was going to be played out. All this however became very clear this week.
This time Bret Hart's walk to the ring seemed more lively. One could sense that the peaceful Bret Hart character had been replaced by a confrontational Hitman. Hart cut a spectacular promo once in the ring. He once again blurred real life with the current storyline. Bret Hart called out Vince McMahon to the ring and what we got was one of the best confrontations in pro wrestling history. The mic work was top notch with both men holding nothing back.
The key confrontational moments were when Hart addressed his stroke and used it as a way to show his contempt for McMahon. Hart even went so far as to the McMahon the best there is, was, and ever will be at lying. He even said that McMahon couldnt even lace his dads Jock strap. McMahon on the other hand countered by saying that Stu didnt deserve to be in Hall Of Fame and that Bret Hart was pathetic.
Both men got a tremendous reaction from the crowd proving that this angle is red hot. The mic work resulted in Bret Hart kicking and punching McMahon. This led to the animal Batista getting in the ring to assault Bret Hart. Chants of Cena could be heard all around the arena. Earlier in the day I had a friend comment to me that the feud would boil to Cena and Batista but I was unsure. It turned out to be correct though and I think for the better.
WWE did a great job in teasing the sharp shooter that we will see at Wrestlemania. Having Batista and Cena represent them or tag in their corners at Mania also seems like a good idea. I do not seem to understand though why the Hart Dynasty has yet to have any part in this angle. I know that they are still at the beginning of their carrer but Bret Hart's return could do wonders for them. I would personally enjoy seeing them managed by Bret Hart at some point.
