Career

It was revealed in Bret Hart's Bret "Hit Man" Hart: The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be DVD that Bret realized that he wanted to become a professional wrestler full time after visiting Puerto Rico with his brother Smith. Originally, it had been Bruce that was to travel to Puerto Rico with Smith, but Bruce backed out of the trip at the last minute. Bret said that because the ticket bought for Bruce was for a "B. Hart", he was forced into going by his family. Bret also said that Bruce helped make his decision to go to Puerto Rico final after telling him that he would enjoy it. After coming home to Calgarymarker, Bret realized that he wanted to join the Stampede Wrestling promotion owned by his father full time.

Bruce Hart formed a tag team with Brian Pillman named Bad Company in Stampede Wrestling.

In 1996 Bruce Hart made a comeback to the ring with the independent New York based promotion Ultimate Championship Wrestling or UCW,where he wrestled with the likes of Chris Chavis, his brother-in-law Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Falcon Coperis Louis Velazquez, and Marty Jannetty. Bruce Hart was instrumental in the development of the young talent of the UCW.

Hart is retired as a wrestler and currently working as a substitute teacher. He ran Stampede Wrestling with his brother, Ross, but since 2005, he has no role within the company or with training wrestlers.

In a June 29, 2007 interview for "The Calgary Sun", Bruce Hart commented that Chris Benoit was a "delusional juice freak", saying he was not surprised at all by the recent actions, involving the murder of his wife, and son. "The last time I saw him he was in pretty rough shape mentally", said Bruce Hart. He also said "I didn't know all the details, but I knew it wasn't good. I was not at all shocked [by what happened]." "I've known too many wrestlers who couldn't separate the character they play on television from their real life," said Hart, who has wrestled professionally, promoted wrestling and trained wrestlers all his life. "Wrestlers start believing their press clippings and what is said on television. It's like an actor leaving the set, but still playing the part. There's a delusional element to this. I've seen it over and over again. Some people can't separate the character from real life, and Chris was one of those people." Hart was also deeply angered that World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit on Monday Night Raw before they learned Benoit had been responsible for the deaths of his family. "I kept hearing 'He was a nice guy, a great guy.' For them to do a tribute show was disgraceful."

The book Ring of Hell stated that Bruce was always abusive towards and jealous of Benoit during his days training in the Hart Family Dungeon.
