It was really great seeing so many of the WWE wrestlers backstage in the last couple of months. I would've loved to have spent more time with many of them. I won't be at Raw in Indianapolis but it would've been great to have gone back there another great city where I've had many great matches. One of the greatest matches of my career was against "Rowdy" Roddy Piper at WrestleMania VIII. I can think of a lot of guys that loved wrestling there. It was a good wrestling town and it would've been nice to say hi to them after all these years.
It's been hard getting around with my leg but, all things considered, the weather's been really nice and, with the Olympics on, it's worth propping your leg up and getting lost in the excitement of it all. I simply don't have anything to say about Canada's loss in Olympic hockey against the feisty Americans. Canadians fight best when their backs are pressed against the wall. I still believe! Go Canada Go!
Firstly, I'd like to say how great it is watching Canada compete in the Winter Olympics this year. Canadian pride is swollen to an all- time max and I have high expectations on how Canada will do this year. It's a shame that tragedy struck so quickly with the death of the Georgian luger and, like all Canadians and people around the world, my heart goes out to his family and his fellow countrymen. In a sad but odd way, I know how it feels watching someone you love die in front of the world doing something they love. Go Canada Go! Show the world what we're made of!
As far as the WWE goes, all I can say is where the heck is Jim Ross?

"It's hard to begin describing what a surrealistic feeling it was to walk out on the ramp to "Hitman" chants and my music pounding in my head. I want to say I was nervous but I wasn't. Was this really happening? Was any of this possible? Had it really been 12 years? I have a lot of great memories from different times I wrestled in Dayton, Ohio over my 14-year WWE career, including winning the first ever King of the Ring, but the memory of the January 4th Monday Night Raw stands among the highest. Prior to the show, throughout the day, numerous WWE superstars and employees from all levels bent over backwards to make me feel at home. Many of them expressed to me how honored they were to be there on such as special night. Many of them seemed touched, if not emotional, in what I can only describe as one of the happiest nights in wrestling history.

"I had a chance to catch up with Nattie and Harry (Natalya and David Hart Smith in WWE) this past weekend and I had my first chance to show off my Chinese fighting dog, Jojo. Even Harry was impressed with the wrestling knowledge that my dog possesses and Jojo surprised him with his takedowns and submission holds. He was curious to know how Jojo would fare in his upcoming tournament.where he'll put on an exhibition against Guido Sanchez a young chihuahua who has his orange belt and has won several bouts with his finisher leg lock. Animal activists will be glad to know Jojo has never gone to the throat yet, and tends to let his opponents up after scoring his pinfall or a submission.

"It was great being invited back to drop the puck for the Calgary Hitmen this past Sunday for the 15th anniversary celebration. I had a great time at the game and though, unfortunately, the Hitmen lost their first game of the season, they're presently tearing up the league with a 6-1 record and have been touted as the number one ranked junior team in Canada for the third year in a row. I want to wish them all the best for what looks like another great season and I recommend to all classic Hitman fans to check out the cool throwback jerseys. It was what I envisioned all along. Let's go Hitmen!" -Bret

WWE Legends: Bret Hart Interview
By Jon Robinson
The Hart Foundation, Vince McMahon, alcohol and a strip club. Sounds like a recipe for a riot. But to legendary "Hitman" Bret Hart, this combination led to one of the craziest off-camera moments in what Hart calls the "cartoon world" of professional wrestling.
The Hitman versus ‘The Wrestler’
The Wrestler is being lauded as the definitive portrayal of pro wrestling, but I submit that’s only because no one has asked a real wrestling champion about it—until now. In the movie, Randy “The Ram” Robinson was a main-eventer who sold out Madison Square Garden. So was I. The movie opens with a montage of clippings and event posters eerily similar to the ones in my personal collection. I lived that life for real. I liked the movie, and I’m disturbed by it.
Here it is, the long awaited epilogue to the award winning, critically acclaimed Wrestling With Shadows. Still widely considered the best wrestling film ever made - because it's all real! - this special, limited collector's edition 10th anniversary set includes a second documentary, The Life & Death of Owen Hart, never before released on DVD, Bonus footage includes an exclusive in-depth interview with Bret Hart, candid and revealing, as he looks back over a decade, and a provocative interview with director Paul Jay,
