The Hitman Returns To The WWE
The man who is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be is returning to the WWE. Bret Hart has agreed to a contract that will take effect January 1 and run until just after Wrestlemania in mid-April. What role he will have is unclear, but it is known he will make his first appearance on January 4. That coincidentally is the same night Hulk Hogan makes his debut on TNA which has decided to go head-to-head with RAW on Spike.
Those that know Bret Hart, (and many of us do) know his first reign with the WWE came to an explosive end in Montreal when he was screwed out of the belt at Survivor Series. Hart was about to leave to then competitor WCW and wanted to voluntarily hand the belt over the next night, but Vince McMahon had a little surprise for everyone that night.
I don't know about you, but seeing "The Hitman" back in the WWE is outstanding. I am hoping he doesn't get into the ring as a competitor as I don't know if he can withstand the physical punishment that one takes---especially for someone who has had a stroke. I am guessing he will be a general manager or something----who may throw the odd punch or two. I am hoping Vince is on the receiving end of one of those punches.
