The Wrestling Documentary Everybody Has Been Waiting For., 2 February 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Bret Hart is the greatest technical wrestler of all time. Shawn Michaels is the greatest performing wrestler of all time. Both were the best at opposite wrestling styles which elevated them to the top. Starting out as friends, they became enemies both in and out of the ring, which lead to the most real rivalry ever and ending in the most controversial match ever: "The Montreal Screwjob."

The hatchet was finally buried in 2010 when Bret Hart made his long awaited return to the WWE following his shocking loss in 1997. This DVD has Jim Ross interviewing Michaels and Hart with occasional stock footage of old events. They talk about their lives from before arriving to WWE to where they are now. They give their sides of the stories that can come as a surprise to some. The more into the future they get, the more heartfelt and teary-eyed they get.

It is not just because they had different performing styles that strong resentment grew, both guys wanted to be the main guy and both had huge egos. But Shawn Michaels was the immature and rebellious one, whereas Bret Hart was the more impatient and egotistical one. They tried to put on good shows and good segments, but everything was taken the wrong way with both of them. With WCW gaining more popularity than WWE and stealing their hottest stars, they wanted Bret Hart and kept making offers he couldn't refuse. He refused to drop the title to Shawn in Montreal at the 1997 Survivor Series, so chairman--Vince McMahon--marched to the ring and told the timekeeper to ring the bell right before the finish to make Shawn the victor. Bret spat in Vince's face and trashed the area with his family wrestlers trying to calm him down. Bret hated WCW, heard about his brother Owen's death in a WWE pay-per-view, suffered a stroke, brother- in-law--David Smith (British Bulldog) died. He made peace with Vince soon after, and the last one that he needed to reconcile with was Shawn. Shawn had a huge burden of guilt and was scared at how things would turn out. Bret and Shawn are now good friends.

This is the best rivalry ever because it was real. Stone Cold & Mr. McMahon, Stone Cold & The Rock, Hulk Hogan & Andre The Giant are all classics, but the two best had the most heat and the best story to tell.
