Bret Hart Posts Emotional Message 20 Years After Stroke WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Bret ‘the Hitman’ Hart took to Instagram yesterday (June 24) to post an emotional message marking 20 years since he suffered his stroke.

Hart’s stroke marked the official end of his in-ring career, aside from his match at WrestleMania 26 against Vince McMahon in Phoenix, Arizona.

Bret posted a photo of his entrance for that match, as well as an emotional message reflecting on his stroke.

He wrote:

Walking down the aisle at Wrestlemania 26 in Phoenix. Today marks 20 years since I suffered a stroke. I chose this photo because there was a time when I didn’t think this moment would ever happen again, especially when I was struggling to turn my hand over, unable to walk or stand, and struggling to talk.  When you suffer a stroke, the doctors never promise that you’ll have a full recovery.  I still have some weakness on my left side to this day, but I’m very fortunate to be here today having recovered what I did. I will forever be grateful to the doctors and therapists at the Foothills Hospital here in Calgary and my fans around the world for their prayers.  While the match itself will never be in anyone’s top 10, this moment represents one of my greatest victories.

Bret most recently made an appearance managing FTR at an independent wrestling show earlier this month.
