Jim Ross Speaks In-Depth On Bret Hart’s WWE Return

Matt Boone

The following are highlights from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:

There is tons of speculation regarding WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart signing an agreement to return to WWE in the near future. Let me make this clear, I have not personally talked to Bret in months but have exchanged a few emails since I took ill in October but that was about his and my health issues and we never discussed a potential return to WWE for him. Also, I have not talked to one person in WWE about this issue either as I rarely talk to any one within WWE about any thing that doesn’t involve my contractual issues.

I do know have a few, somewhat educated opinions on this matter. Firstly, having Bret Hart return to a WWE locker room and be able to mentor young talents is awesome. Young wrestlers need more positive role models who have made it within the business and Bret would no doubt be a great mentor and coach. I have often wondered why Bret has not been asked or arrangements made for Bret to do be a "reoccurring professor" in WWE’s developmental program, FCW.

Secondly, Bret would not come back to WWE without a game plan and a strategy. Just as his wrestling matches had a beginning, a middle and an end so would the "Hitman’s" return to WWE especially considering the controversy of Montreal 1997 which is an issue that seemingly won’t die to wrestling historians and aficionados much like the President Kennedy tragedy in Dallas in 1963 to conspiracy theorists.
