BRET ‘THE HIT MAN’ HART SIGNING AT FORBIDDEN PLANET

On Thursday 16th April 2009 we put on our mirrored sunglasses and practiced our Sharpshooters in order to welcome wrestling legend Bret 'The Hit Man' Hart to the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR where he met fans and signed copies of Hitman: My Life In The Cartoon World of Wrestling.

In Hitman, one of pro wrestling's biggest stars tells it like it was, with a human and very touching amount of detail. He relates the story of how a family-friendly, locally oriented sport run by curmudgeonly promoters was steamrollered by Hulk Hogan - fueled WWF marketing machine. Hart also vividly depicts the threadbare but thrilling family business he grew up in, road trips in crowded vans, meager pay, clownish ring antics and solid sense of brotherhood. This is a glance under the ropes of pro-wrestling, from one of its biggest stars.

Bret Hart is recognised as one of the best wrestlers in the world. Multiple record-holder and winner of manifold titles, he is known for never having injured another wrestler.
