Hart still with WCW


By JOHN POWELL -- SLAM! Wrestling

Despite rampant Internet rumours posted today, Bret Hart has not been released from World Championship Wrestling says his agent Teri Tkachuk of Bruce Allen Talent.

"It is not true. I don't know what those rumours are about," Tkachuk told SLAM! Wrestling after speaking with Diana Myers, the head of WCW's legal department about the news that's been circulating on the Web.

"It's a lie. I talked to Diana yesterday and we were discussing what was happening with Bret's concussion. She would have mentioned it to me. Her and Bruce Allen have a very good relationship and she would've Fed-Exed a letter...something would've happened. There is no way that this would have leaked out," Tkachuk explained.

Bret Hart's contract was extended by WCW two years ago and runs until November 2002.

Hart is still awaiting the results of medical tests on the affects of his concussion before he can return to the ring. They were due in at the end of September. Hart suffered the injury after being kicked in the head accidentally by Bill Goldberg during a match last year. The medical professionals Hart was examined by ordered him to rest, recover and not wrestle again until they cleared him to do so. The accident has bumped Hart off WCW's active roster though he has made sporadic appearances.

In the meantime, Hart has been working on various film and television projects. In the upcoming Immortal television series he makes two guest-appearances as a demon from hell. Hart will also be starring in a Showtime cable movie directed by actor Eric Stoltz. The movie is currently in production.
