Hakushi (Jinsei Shinzaki) vs Bret Hart - WWF Monday Night RAW [5/14/1995]
Hakushi is one of those guys that I vaguely remembered as a kid but never really followed. In fact, his WWF run was seemingly mishandled pretty spectacularly as it started off strong with a feud against Bret Hart but ended with newly-turned face Hakushi teaming with legendary enhancement talent Barry Horowitz (who Hakushi ended up losing to weeks earlier).
I never had any knowledge of his career outside of the States as a teenager and always found it strange that every WWF video game featured Hakushi’s unique painted tattoos as a CAW option.

Some cringe-inducing attempts at “comedy” including Bret Hart bragging about being able to lick his own eyebrows.
Bret Hart in Lonesome Dove 
As part of the Bret Hart Appreciation Night, WWE.com uploaded a bunch of photos of “The Hitman” including a handful of production shots during his stint on Lonesome Dove.
I’ve never seen an episode, but I think that there’s a reason why Bret Hart’s acting career never took off.
Bret Hart vs Owen Hart - WWF SummerSlam [8/29/1994]
This match will always have a place in my personal top-five bouts of all time due specifically for it being the first wrestling card I was exposed to. As a kid living out in the country, weekly WWF viewings were an impossibility, making the local video rental store my only outlet to see guys like Sting, Bret Hart, and Hulk Hogan. I was aware of these characters already through video games, but it wasn’t until I saw the WWF SummerSlam 1994 VHS tape until I took my first step into this world for real real.
The best thing is that even though Bret and Owen ended up being the best match on the tape and one the greatest matches in both mens’ careers, the real reason I rented it was because of the infamously awful main event, The Undertaker vs The Undertaker!

Brother Turns on Brother - WWF Royal Rumble [1/22/1994]
Owen Hart blamed Bret for their loss to the Quebecers and took his frustrations out on “The Hitman” immediately following their Royal Rumble match. The referee called for the match to end after it was clear that Bret Hart had “injured” his knee and could no longer compete, which infuriated Owen as he felt his brother was “too damn selfish” by ignoring the option to tag his younger sibling into the match.
Bret Hart struggled to get to his feet while the audience cheered on, only to have his leg kicked out from under him by Owen once he actually managed to stand on his own. Bad blood between the brothers had been teased before this moment, but this betrayal by the younger Hart brother led to the two facing each other for the first time ever at WrestleMania X.
Why didn’t anybody tell me this happened at the Rumble?!
Bret Hart vs. 1-2-3 Kid: WWF Title Match on Monday Night Raw [July 11, 1994]
This is one of the best matches I’ve ever seen. I first saw it when it aired aeons ago on an early episode of WWF Monday Night Raw, and it still holds up well today. In fact, I believe it was ranked really high on WWE’s “best matches in the history of RAW” list?
I don’t know for sure, but I do know I’d place it near the top of my personal favorites list. The match works on a number of levels, but the less said the better at this point. Just sit back and enjoy, y’all!
Shawn Michaels Celebrates His WWF Championship Victory Against Bret Hart - WWF WrestleMania XII [3/31/1996]
I could use this space to talk about how thrilling the Bret Hart and Shawn Michael’s Sixty-Minute Iron Match was and how I remember barely moving an inch, glued completely to the television screen while I watched it unfold on the rented VHS tape — or I could just point out the fact that I like HBK’s pretty tights.
In fact, this is the favorite version of Shawn Michaels that I use for WWE ‘13.
