• Bret Hart On His Most Challenging Battle, Goldberg’s Kick Related To His Stroke
During an episode of Confessions of the Hitman, two time WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart talked about the stroke that he suffered.
Here’s what Bret said about it:
“Hands down, the most challenging battle I ever had, that’s for sure. I’ve talked a lot about my stroke over the years. As difficult as it was, I’ve always been really proud of how I recovered through it.
I willed myself to not really give up, and I think it’s a little bit like, I wrote in my book that it was kind of time to be the hero I was pretending to be in [pro] wrestling. I did not give up. I kept pushing the envelope the whole time.”
Bret also talked about how he thinks Goldberg’s kick to his head could be related to his stroke:
“When Bill Goldberg kicked me, I could see stars. Then, when I had my stroke, lying on the grass 100 feet from The Pumphouse Theatre on the Bow River there, on the bike path, I remember lying on the grass and I could see just out of my left eye, not the right one. The right eye was fine, but the left eye, it was the same thing. It was a million stars in my left eye, and I remember going, ‘the concussion’.”
