Bret Hart appeared at All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing PPV to unveil the company’s World Championship. Hart is one of the biggest names of the professional wrestling industry, having competed in the WWE for over a decade. Hart was part of the infamous Montreal Screwjob, following which, he left WWE for their rivals WCW.

For a long time, Bret Hart had strained relationships with the company following the events of Montreal Screwjob and death of his brother inside a WWE ring. However, Hart reconciled with Vince Mcmahon in 2010 and signed a contract with the company.

Bret Hart’s appearance at DON was rather surprising, as it wasn’t announced on any platform. Apparently, Hart was a last-minute replacement for Ric Flair, who was originally scheduled to appear at the PPV.

Bret Hart recently appeared on the Ariel Helwani MMA Show and talked about his much-publicized appearance on AEW’s PPV. Hart said that he was a big fan of the company and his appearance was simply a one-time thing. Hart also hoped that AEW succeeds and provides a real alternative to WWE in the professional wrestling industry.

“It was convenient the first time. I’m a big fan of the promotion, and I like a lot of the wrestlers that are there, and I think it’s good for the industry if there’s another wrestling company besides WWE. At the same time, it was a one-time thing, mostly because I was in the area. But I do have a lot of fondness for what they’re trying to do, and I support them. I hope they become a real big wrestling company in the next year.”

Bret Hart returned to WWE during SummerSlam earlier this month, hyping Seth Rollins before his match against Brock Lesnar. The Hitman appearing on WWE’s rival promotion will definitely be a piece of big news if it happens again in the future.
