Storyline

For more than a decade, Bret Hit Man Hart and Shawn Michaels engaged in perhaps the most storied rivalry in the history of sports entertainment, from their teams (the Hart Foundation and the Rockers), through battles for the Intercontinental Championship and the richest prize in the business, the WWE Championship. Their enmity spilled out of the ring, and led to the most infamous incident in the history of professional wrestling, The Montreal Screwjob. More than a decade later, the two men buried the hatchet as both are now WWE Hall of Famers. Now, for the first time ever, the two sit down together and rehash their intertwined destinies in Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart. These new, never-before-aired, interviews will shed new light and insight on issues and controversies fans have speculated about for years.

Long On Nostalgia, Short On Genuine Material
10 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

As a child, the antics of the WWF consumed a large portion of my free time. I was entranced by the high-flying action and the soap opera-ish dramas played out inside the ring. As such, I have distinct memories of matches featuring Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels. While this neat little set fuels such nostalgia, it is embarrassingly short on genuine material.

There are enough special features on these discs to keep hard-core wrestling fans entertained for hours on end. First comes the main interview (which, truth be told, is just a lot of talking, really), followed by a number of Michaels/Hart confrontations, as well as more special appearances and interview snippets. Simply put, there's a lot of "stuff" here.

The good parts, at least to me, were the matches themselves. Though Shawn and Bret usually work the same basic style of match every single time, they are on the whole better than your average matches. Specific highlights include a ladder confrontation and the infamous "Montreal Screwjob" campaign. Such matches (including everything from the commentary to the stunts performed) will bring you back to those younger days when everything was just a bit more "real".

Sadly, pretty much everything else in this set is as "fake" as the premise of professional wrestling. Though Michaels "wins" the interview by coming off as apologetic and much less arrogant than he is described as by pretty much everyone else, the content discussed in the interviews is ridiculous. If one reads Bret Hart's book and then watches this interview, it is clear that a lot of lying is transpiring by one side or the other. Nobody wants to see sour grapes (which Bret has quite a few of, and rightfully so) on TV, so the interview is just fluff that passes as "hard-hitting journalism". This kind of turned me off to the whole premise of the set.

Overall, then, "Shawn vs. Bret" is a decent collection to own if you are a hardcore fan of either wrestler or the WW(F/E) in general. If you (like I was) are looking for even a slight bit of substance or "realism", then prepare to be severely disappointed. Ironically, the matches themselves are the only "real" portion of the entire set.
