Bret Hart in WCW

Did any one wrestler benefit more from the Monday Night Wars than Bret Hart? Meltzer wrote that Bret was at the center of a bidding war unlike anything in the history of pro-wrestling in 1996. This week Eric and Conrad cover the conversations with Bret about coming to WCW in 1996, the actual negotiating process in 1997 just before the "Montreal Screwjob" and the events that led to his debut in December 1997. Eric explains why Bret didn't have a match at Starrcade, why Bret started with Flair, what the plans were for Bret and Hogan, and then Eric painstakingly relives the highs and (mostly) lows of Bret Hart in WCW. Stay tuned to the end as Conrad reads Bret's exact quotes about Eric Bischfof and Eric finally responds!   Subscribe to our YouTube:  Ask Eric questions LIVE on Twitch at  Follow us on Twitter: @83weeks  Like us on Facebook:  Buy a shirt and get a call from Eric:  Find tons of new merch at   Own a home for less than your current rent:
