It has been reported by LordsofPain.net that Bret Hart is done with the WWE.

The website reports that the kidnap angle on last week's Raw was WWE's way of writing him off. However, many feel he will return to WWE near the end of the summer.

As for the reason behind his hiatus, there are a few theories.

One theory is that Hart's insurance provider, Lloyd's of London, put pressure on him to leave. They were concerned for his well being (and their own money) after his increasingly physical involvement with the Raw broadcast in the last few weeks.

Another possible reason, and this is more likely, is Bret's wedding. For those of you who don't know, Bret will be getting married for the third time in a few weeks.

However, the most newsworthy piece from this item is the statement that Hart did not show up at WWE's Fatal Fourway pay-per-view event.

Original plans called for Bret to have a face-to-face with the NXT Nexus and confront them over their actions on last week's Raw.

However, that obviously didn't happen as WWE was forced to re-script that segment.

It is still unknown if Bret informed WWE that he couldn't make it, if he just decided not to go, or if it was WWE's call as a way to get him off tv.

It will be interesting to how things pan out with this situation. Thanks for reading and please sign my petition!
