Hitman My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling Bret Hart Ebury Press Bio

Hart's account of his professional wrestling career is almost literally blow-by-blow, with detailed descriptions of the choreography of many of his most prominent matches in the former World Wrestling Foundation and the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling. (And, yes, he freely admits that the outcomes are determined in advance, while the wrestlers work out the actual moves for themselves.) To hear him tell it, everybody hailed him as the best damn worker in the business, a storyteller with the comparative artistry of a De Niro. But the manipulative schemes of WWF head Vince McMahon (and several of his colleagues) kept Hart from reaching his full potential as a champion until injuries sidelined him for good. The memoir goes deep into Hart's family history—his father was one of the pioneers of the Canadian pro wrestling circuit, and his brothers and brothers-in-law followed him into the business. Wrestling fans will eat up all the backstage drama, but even those who don't care for the shows should be impressed by Hart's meticulous eye for telling detail—the bittersweet story that results is simultaneously a celebration and an expose. 32 pages of photos. (Oct. 8) The international bestseller by 'the living legend of wrestling' - The Sun

Le compte du Cerf de sa carriere de lutte professionnelle est presque litteralement detaille, avec des descriptions detaillees de la choregraphie de plusieurs de ses matchs plus importants dans la Base de Lutte de l'ancien Monde et le Championnat maintenant-ancien du Monde Luttant. (Et, oui, il admet librement que les resultats sont determines a l'avance, alors que les lutteurs etablissent les mouvements reels pour eux-memes.) Pour l'entendre le dire, tout le monde l'a grele en tant que meilleur fichu travailleur dans les affaires, un conteur avec l'art comparatif de De Niro. Mais les plans manipulateurs du chef Vince de WWF que McMahon (et plusieurs de ses collegues) ont garde le Cerf d'atteindre sa pleine capacite en tant que champion jusqu'aux blessures l'ont mis a l'ecart pour de bon. Le memoire entre profondement dans la famille du Cerf que histoire-son pere etait l'un des pionniers du pro circuit de lutte Canadien, et ses freres et beaux-freres l'ont suivi dans les affaires. Les fans de Lutte mangeront vers le haut de tout le drame des coulisses, mais meme ceux qui ne s'inquietent pas des expositions devraient etre impressionnes par l'oeil meticuleux du Cerf pour raconter a petit groupe-le l'histoire aigre-douce que les resultats est simultanement une celebration et des revelations. 32 pages des photos. (8 octobre) Le best-seller international par « la legende vivante » - de The Sun de lutte

Tout simplement magnifique. Un critique a dit qu'il existe de nombreuses autobiographies de catcheurs confessant leurs vies si etranges... et que Bret Hart avait ecrit la mere de toutes. Je suis entierement d'accord tant son ouvrage est saisissant. Ce livre est une merveille qui n'epargnera aucun coeur, meme les etrangers au catch trouveront un plaisir certain dans cette lecture. Bret Hart est definitivement le heros qu'il a souvent pretendu etre a travers son personnage de Hitman et je recommande vivement son livre et ses mots a tous, sa vie mouvementee est instructive en plus d'etre passionnante. La sincerite de son recit est parfois choquante, ses souvenirs tous plus vivants les uns que les autres sont merveilles et j'assure des emotions et frissons garantis. La vie n'a jamais, jamais epargne l'auteur de la plus grande autobiographie que j'ai lue. Tous les fans de ce monde unique trouveront en Bret Hart une veritable icone qui ne trahit jamais ses plus profondes resolutions; cet homme est d'une humanite remarquable et chacune de ses reflexions vaut d'etre retenue. A l'image de son auteur, ce livre est tout simplement le meilleur qu'il y eut, le meilleur qui soit et le meilleur qu'il y aura jamais. Un livre extraordinaire Un livre enorme, long et superbe. Bret nous dit tout et bien souvent le beau role n'est pas pour lui cat tout n'a pas ete rose pour le Hitman qui a fait pas mal de betises dans sa vie. Une confession fleuve, touchante, dure et parfois tres cruelle. Il n'existe pas de meilleur livre ecrit par un catcheur.

In his own words, Bret Hart’s honest, perceptive, startling account of his life in and out of the pro wrestling ring. The sixth-born son of the pro wrestling dynasty founded by Stu Hart and his elegant wife, Helen, Bret Hart is a Canadian icon. As a teenager, he could have been an amateur wrestling Olympic contender, but instead he turned to the family business, climbing into the ring for his dad’s western circuit, Stampede Wrestling. From his early twenties until he retired at 43, Hart kept an audio diary, recording stories of the wrestling life, the relentless travel, the practical jokes, the sex and drugs, and the real rivalries (as opposed to the staged ones). The result is an intimate, no-holds-barred account that will keep readers, not just wrestling fans, riveted. Hart achieved superstardom in pink tights, and won multiple wrestling belts in multiple territories, for both the WWF (now the WWE) and WCW. But he also paid the price in betrayals (most famously by Vince McMahon, a man he had served loyally); in tragic deaths, including the loss of his brother Owen, who died when a stunt went terribly wrong; and in his own massive stroke, most likely resulting from a concussion he received in the ring, and from which, with the spirit of a true champion, he has battled back. Widely considered by his peers as one of the business’s best technicians and workers, Hart describes pro wrestling as part dancing, part acting, and part dangerous physical pursuit. He is proud that in all his years in the ring he never seriously hurt a single wrestler, yet did his utmost to deliver to his fans an experience as credible as it was exciting. He also records the incredible toll the business takes on its workhorses he estimates that twenty or more of the wrestlers he was regularly matched with have died young, weakened by their own coping mechanisms, namely drugs, alcohol, and steroids. That toll included his own brother-in-law, Davey Boy Smith. No one has ever written about wrestling like Bret Hart. No one has ever lived a life like Bret Hart’s. For as long as I can remember, my world was filled with liars and bullshitters, losers and pretenders, but I also saw the good side of pro wrestling. To me there is something bordering on beautiful about a brotherhood of big tough men who pretended to hurt one another for a living instead of actually doing it. Any idiot can hurt someone. —from Hitman

Extrait Preface It seemed like an eternity until the pastor called me to the podium. I rose slowly from my seat, away from the insulation of loved ­ones–­Julie, our four kids, my friend Marcy and Olympic wrestling champion Daniel Igali. I felt them all take a deep breath as I made my way to the ­aisle. My fatherÂ’s funeral service was held on October 23, 2003, at the biggest church in Calgary, yet it overflowed with an eclectic throng of thousands who came to pay their respects to the legendary Stu Hart, ­old-­time pro wrestling promoter ­extraordinaire. I moved slowly, a silent prayer resounding in my head, “Please, God, help me make it through.” I am an experienced public speaker, but my confidence had been shattered by a major ­stroke. It hadnÂ’t been that long since IÂ’d been trapped in a wheelchair, paralyzed on the left side, unsure whether IÂ’d ever walk again. Since then IÂ’d been having emotional meltdowns triggered by the most unlikely things; this is common among stroke victims. I didnÂ’t know how I was going to deliver a eulogy worthy of my father and not break down. It was also hard for me to walk tall when I felt so many eyes measuring the difference between what I was ­now–­my body stiff, the chiselled edges softened–­to what IÂ’d been. But when I walked past the pew where my brothers and sisters ­sat–­my limp more noticeable than I wanted–­I sensed, perhaps for the first time in our lives, that they were all behind me, even those with whom IÂ’d had differences. Do it for Dad, Bret. Do it for all of us. Do us proud. ThereÂ’d been twelve Hart kids, and now there were ten. Our beloved mother, Helen, had died just two years earlier. WeÂ’d all been through so much, travelled such a long, long road. This wasnÂ’t just the end of my fatherÂ’s life, this was something deeper, and I think we all felt it. So many times over so many years I truly thought this godforsaken business was dead to me, but this was the day pro wrestling died for me–­for good. In the front pew sat Vince McMahon, billionaire promoter of the WWE (once the WWF), whoÂ’d made a failed attempt to steal my dignity, my career and my reputation. Beside him sat Carlo DeMarco, my old friend turned loyal McMahon lieutenant. They were doing their best to look dignified, but I knew–­and they knew I knew–­that McMahonÂ’s presence at Stu HartÂ’s funeral was more about image than anything else. It only made me more determined to climb the steps with my head held high. You donÂ’t matter to me any more, Vince. I survived you, and everything else too. I had thought it was wrestlingÂ’s darkest hour when IÂ’d had my heart cut out in the middle of the ring by that son of a bitch. Then the Grim Reaper of wrestling took my youngest brother, Owen, and that was the blackest day. Keep walking, I told myself, for Davey, Pillman, Curt, Rick, Liz . . . so many of us are gone, so young, and directly on account of the wrestling life. Hell, even Hawk. People told me he had wept like a baby when he heard Stu had died of pneumonia at eighty­three . . . and then Hawk died that very night. One more for the list. And surely not the last. I reached into my breast pocket and took out my notes, carefully unfolding them on the slippery, polished surface of the oak podium. I surveyed the crowd, my gaze stopping at the young apprentices, Chris Benoit, Edge and Storm, who looked back at me with respectful anticipation. Next I glanced at a company of stalwart ring veterans–The Cuban, Leo, Hito, even Bad ­News–­all more ruminative and melancholy than IÂ’d ever seen them. I read it in their faces, the unspoken truth that burying a man like Stu Hart was truly the end of what we had lived ­for–­and too many had died for. And then the sight of old Killer Kowalski, in his good suit, transported me back four decades, to before Owen was even born. I am a survivor with a story to tell. ThereÂ’s never been an accurate account of the history of pro wrestling. Al
