Bret "The Hitman" Hart

My brother and I used to turn my parent's basement into a WWF wrestling ring. Often we would take turns pretending to be different wrestling characters, and for safety we used beanbag chairs to absorb the off-the-top-rope impact. When we would select which wrestler we'd want to be for the match, my go-to would almost always be Canadian born Bret "the Hitman" Hart.
