WCW icon and WWE legend, Bret “The Hitman” Hart is one of the most respected names in the history of pro-wrestling. Having entertained millions around the world during his career, the legendary second-generation Superstar actually had other dreams before seeking out his path in the pro-wrestling business.
In 1997, Hart enrolled in Mount Royal University to learn film but destiny seemed to have other plans for him. Now, after more than two decades, The Hitman was invited back at his old school where he was presented with a prestigious Bachelor of Physical Literacy degree.
The 7-time World Champion took to his Facebook to share the news:
“I enrolled at MRU in 1977 to learn film. I ended up taking a different path that allowed me to see the world while representing Calgary and Canada. I am extremely proud and humbled to receive an honorary Bachelor of Physical Literacy from Mount Royal University this Friday, I can’t wait to see this journey come full circle.”
