No going back to new WWF
By BRET "THE HIT MAN" HART -- For the Calgary Sun
That crowd on Nitro last week really had me amused.
Did you see how they were so smugly gloating over Lex Luger being United
I know they were thinking, "Oh good, another big loss for the Hitman."
They're not smart enough to realize that to have big losses, first you have
to have big wins.
Lex Luger deserves a lot of credit for seizing a rare moment when my
I'm known for my focus, but there was this one "jabronie" in the front row
with a sign so tacky that I was distracted by the degree of his ignorance.
Luger's torture rack is a brutal hold and in between seeing stars from the
pain, something occurred to me.
It was a thought I've never had before. I decided, for the first time ever,
I could have hung in there until I passed out, but then I'd be out of
action for a while.
But Luger has always been a decent guy, and I knew he'd grant me a rematch.
He proved that by meeting me just three days later.
So now I'm two-time WCW U.S. Champion.
This brings me to Donnie Abreu. Remember how he always used to talk trash
about me here on the Sun's website? Well, it turns out that after we ran him out of
town, he's turned up on TSN's web site hiding behind the pen name, "Big
He's given himself plenty of reason to hide the way he showed off how much
he doesn't know.
Big Daddy's latest scoop?
"Bret feels like he is being completely misused (by WCW). He doesn't
understand why he's been with the company so long and has accomplished
I wouldn't call beating Ric Flair and winning the U.S. title two times
"nothing" -- and those are just the highlights of my eight months with WCW.
It gets better.
"Hart's insatiable need for the spotlight, his yearning to be number one
and his wish to be remembered as the best may force him to do the one thing he
never dreamed he would even consider. Go back to the WWF."
OK, I know you're all thinking, "That's insane."
Insane? You should be committed.
That will never happen.
I plain and simply don't like what the WWF's product has become.
I have no desire to associate myself with it.
I don't let my own kids watch it, and I'd be a hypocrite to expect that
"Big Daddy" says he got all this secret information about the Hitman from
an "excellent authority."
He probably really believes he has a scoop and I don't mean to melt his
sundae, but someone should let him in on the joke that he's being duped and
deceived -- no doubt by one of McMahon's soldier boys.
It's OK, son: Better men than you have been worked by McMahon's machine.
I am proud to be with World Championship Wrestling. I'm looking forward to
building the next chapter of the Hitman's legacy here.
I came into WCW having learned so much from past achievements.
But I've found that you can learn even more suffering betrayal and defeat.
I won't be making those mistakes again.
My new attitude in WCW and my new alliance with Sting will ensure that it's
onward and upward.
The wrestlers look at the WCW U.S. title as a stepping stone to the World
As a five-time world champion, I don't need any stepping stones, but it's a
nice addition to the Grand Slam WCW/WWF Gold collection I'm working on.
Thanks to all the statistics freaks who answered my question about whether
anyone has ever won all the heavyweight titles in both the WWF and WCW.
You couldn't think of anyone, and neither can I, so I'm determined to earn
the honor of being the only guy in wrestling history to win it all.
