Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart is one of professional wrestling’s biggest names.
Internationally recognised as one of the greatest technical wrestlers to ever lace up a pair of books, the ‘Excellence of Execution’ won multiple World championships during his illustrious career, and ultimately earned his place in WWE’s Hall of Fame.
As a role model to millions of children, Calgary native Hart was revered by fans around the world – so it came as a shock to many when, in 2007, the Hitman published his lengthy memoirs which lifted the lid on his adultery and rocky relationship with his wife, Julie Hart.
Five years later, Julie Hart has now published her own autobiography, Hart Strings: My Life with Bret and the Hart family, in which the author chronicles her relationship with the grappler, her experiences as a ‘wrestling wife’, and life as part of Canada’s famous Hart wrestling family.
Prior to the book’s release, I had the opportunity to speak with the author for an exclusive Mirror.co.uk interview about her motivations for writing the book and her memories of the WWE – including, of course, the infamous “Montreal screwjob”.
