Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling by Bret Hart

© 2007 Random House Canada
Eric: You have always claimed to be the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. Who do you think is the second-best wrestler in history?

Bret Hart: In all honesty, I don’t know that I was the greatest wrestler of all-time. I tip my hat to a lot of the great wrestlers. Dynamite Kid, who I wrote about considerably in my book, I would never say that I was better than him. I think that pound-for-pound, he was the greatest wrestler of all-time. I also think that I was more professional than he was and I had more longevity than he did. Curt Hennig was also a wrestler that I would never say that I was better than he was. He was a great wrestler. There are a lot of great wrestlers. Although, I don’t know that anybody did it as safely or as smoothly as I did.

Eric: Is there anything else you would like to let my readers know?

Bret Hart: Just that I did my best to be as honest as I could about my career. I hope that everyone appreciates the honesty in my book. I know that some people have been surprised by the level of the honesty in my book and others have been taken aback by it and now see me in a different light. I think that for the most part there are a lot of people that appreciated the honesty in my book and for once they wanted to hear an honest account of what wrestling is all about. I think that I’ve done that. I hope that not only fans, but wrestlers, will read my book and maybe understand what is missing in wrestling today.
