Hit Man By Bret Hart

The book has been out for a while now, but may still be found. The autobiography of Bret Hart and much of what is said could be questioned, just as it is with any pro wrestler writing on himself. Still, what is presented makes for an interesting read.

Oddly enough, Hart mentions WWF shows in Phoenix and an interesting encounter with Arizona's grand dirty old woman, Princess Tona Tomah. At long last, the mystery of who made the cartoons of Tomah having sex with Jay Strongbow in the Fairgrounds Coliseum locker room is revealed.

The infamous Montreal Screw Job is dealt with at length, but again, one has to realize how one sided this viewpoint is going to be. Still, an unusual read.

The book is worth a look if you have not seen it yet. Long forgotten people such as Paddy Ryan and Kasavubu show up in print, along with The Stomper, The Sheepherders (Bushwhackers), Frenchy Martin and many more.

The death of a Canadian wrestler via heart attack after a match in Puerto Rico is almost as alarming as the fatal mishap with Owen Hart.

Worth checking out.
