    It's sad that we're almost at the point where it's abnormal for a pro wrestler to actually grow old. Good luck hitman....

    Best wishes to him.
    What an entertainer!!!
    The Hart Foundation is like the hockey equivalent of... the Sutters!!!



    1985-1986-1987 was 3rd/4th grade for me.
    Those were my first years living in small-town Canada. (small, small community btw. Windsor & Belle River)
    Man... every single recess, the entire 3rd/4th grade class would go outside and each pretend to be a pro-wrestler.
    It was good times.
    I remember all this stuff (below - from wiki).

    The Hart Foundation made its pay-per-view debut at WrestleMania 2 in 1986 as participants of a 20-man battle royal which also included NFL stars. The duo were the final two men whom André the Giant eliminated to win the battle royal. The Harts gained their status as a mid-card team when feuding with The Killer Bees (Jim Brunzell and B. Brian Blair). At Saturday Night's Main Event, the Foundation faced Brunzell and Blair in a tag team match, which the Killer Bees won. The Hart Foundation continued to feud with the Killer Bees for the better part of 1986.

    The Hart Foundation began a feud with Tag Team Champions The British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid) in early 1987 over the title. On the February 7 edition of Superstars, in Tampa, Florida, the Harts defeated Bulldogs for their first WWF Tag Team Championship when the referee of the match, "Dangerous" Danny Davis helped the Harts to win the match. On the March 14 edition of Saturday Night's Main Event, the Harts made their first title defense against Tito Santana and Dan Spivey and retained the title after Danny Davis hit Santana with Jimmy Hart's megaphone. Santana began to feud with Davis as a result of this action and at this point, he joined the British Bulldogs in their feud with the Hart Foundation. The rivalry culminated in a six-man tag team match at WrestleMania III where the Foundation teamed with Davis against the British Bulldogs and Santana. Davis hit Davey Boy Smith with Jimmy Hart's megaphone and pinned him to get the victory for the Hart Foundation. On the May 2 edition of Saturday Night's Main Event, the Foundation defended their tag title against the British Bulldogs in a Two out of three falls match. In the first fall, they got disqualified because of illegal double-teaming and in the second fall Smith pinned Neidhart. However, the Hart Foundation retained the title due to the disqualification result.

    I was saddened to hear this... the Hitman was by far my favourite wrestler and one of my childhood heroes along with Gretzky.

    1997 was possibly my favorite year in pro wrestling. The feud between Hart and Shawn Michaels was super entertaining as a wrestling fan. A lot of people recognize the high level of in ring work Hart use to put in but many pundits claim his mic/promo skills were subpar. If you look at the program between him and Michaels in 1997 (and I understand there was real heat there), I don't how anyone can find to that conclusion.

    At that time, it wasn't the easiest thing for a face (good guy) to cut a scorching hot promo and although the early Hart Foundation were heels (bad guys), jimmy hart did most of the talking then. Hart's first real run as a heel was the whole anti-american angle which he was brilliant in.

    Easy top 5-ish all time, all things considered.
