‘For me, I was always a storyteller. I always sat down with my opponent and told him what we were going to do. I’ll always remember being appreciated in the wrestling business for being the guy that could tell these great stories.’
Hart is a super patriotic wrestler. He would always carry the Canadian flag with him to the ring.
Talking about his motherland, he reflected,
‘It’s a humbling thing to be a television hero as I was for so many years on TV every Saturday from Canada.’

‘And all the Canadian wrestlers like Natalya or Edge were influenced by me.’
