Sage advice from Uncle Bret


By AL RUCKABER -- Calgary Sun
  Bret (Hitman) Hart chuckled at the comments of his young nephew, Stuart, and issued a mock warning.

"Beware, Stuart, for things may turn out very differently for you," laughed the renowned world champion pro wrestler.

The Hitman was commenting on young Stuart's desire to become a lawyer when he grows up, rather than a pro wrestler.

"All my brothers wanted to become pro wrestlers, except Owen and myself," the Hitman recalled.

"Owen and I were kind of pushed into it. There were eight boys in the family and the other six would have given anything to be pro wrestlers. So beware, Stuart. The two who didn't want to become pro wrestlers, became just that. And, the two who were amateur wrestlers -- just like Stuart is -- were myself and Owen. You never know."

The Hitman added, "it's awesome that Stuart is interested and involved in wrestling and I wish him all the best as far as he takes it. Pro wrestling is not necessarily something every Hart wants to do. Stuart talks and acts much like his dad. All of Keith's kids are good, quiet, sensible kids."

Hart, who says he's not yet seen his young nephew wrestle, offered his congratulations to Stuart for winning his first medal in wrestling at the school championships in early April.

"That first medal is so important," the Hitman said.

"In fact, the most important thing I ever won in my life was my first city championship medal at age 15. It turned my life around and it's still my most valuable possession. If there were a fire in our house, it's the first personal possession I'd grab."

The Hitman has two boys of his own who are quiet opposites when it comes to the idea of pro wrestling careers.

"My 14-year-old old son, Dallas, is not interested at all but I'm sure my eight-year-old son, Blade, wants to. He's really into it."
