Imagine you’re a 10-year-old kid and you are all alone in your house with your little brother. Well, the first thing that must come to your mind and your brother’s, if you are both true WWE fans, is to start wrestling/fighting each other on the bed or sofa in the bedroom or living room and try those killer finishing moves you’ve been secretly practicing on him and try to pin him down and make him taste defeat. We’re pretty sure that whilst wrestling or just enjoying time with your brother, a thought must have come to your or his mind. What if everything was real, like if the atmosphere was as similar as WWE and a live audience was there to watch you with proper referees and the ring and commentators etc. You must’ve thought and also tried to recreate the same scene with your like-minded brother around you, but still couldn’t achieve the perfect scenario.
But, Bret Hart did. Who is Bret Hart, you ask? Bret Hart is a former professional grappler and a WWE wrestler who played in the tournament from 1984 to 2000. In 1992, Bret once had an opportunity to fight his real-life brother-in-law (spouse’s brother) Davey Boy Smith (nicknamed “The British Bulldog”) in London’s most famous Wembley Stadium, and more than 80,000 people were present to witness the iconic fight. Die-hard fans hailed the fight as something they would never forget, and it was the most beautiful thing ever witnessed in the WWE world. “One of the most beautiful masterpieces in the history of the great sport that is professional wrestling,” a user commented on the full match replay available on YouTube under WWE’s official channel. The British Dog defeated Bret Hart in the most exciting 25 minutes of a match anyone had ever seen. It was the definition of the main event back then; two talented wrestlers with a prestigious championship title on the line and equal opportunities for the trophy.
