bret the hitman hart

Reverently described as The "Excellence of Execution" and trained in the storied Hart Family Dungeon, Bret Hart is arguably the greatest technical wrestler in WWE history.

Hart found beauty in the wrestling simplicity. Clad in pink and black tights, he strode to ring against the whirr of an electric guitar, pausing only to gift his trademark shades to a small child waiting ringside. Inside the ring, he wasted no movement, systematically focusing on his opponents’ weaknesses until they were too tired to endure his patented Sharpshooter submission. He was also an innovator of offense and possessed an uncanny ability to create pinning combinations out of seemingly any predicament.

Hart emerged from Calgary's Stampede Wrestling, coming to WWE as a tag team with his brother-in-law, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. Together, The Hart Foundation won the World Tag Team Titles twice and became one of the most popular pairings in WWE.

From there, The Hart Foundation separated, and Bret became and instant sensation as a singles star. He defeated Mr. Perfect for the Intercontinental Championship in August 1991 and became a two-time holder of the title at WrestleMania VIII, where he defeated “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in a memorable clash.

Hart won his first WWE Championship in a non-televised live event in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, forcing Ric Flair to submit to the Sharpshooter. It began the first of five WWE Title reigns for the man who boldly declared, "I'm the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be."

willie thorne

Willie Thorne has been one of the great characters of the game for the past twenty-five years.Things did not come easy in the professional ranks, he did not win a match at the World Championship for the first six years. But in 1982 he reached the quarter-finals, beating former champions Terry Griffiths and John Spencer along the way, and setting the high break for that year, 143, the second best ever at that time.

In the early 1980s, with his family’s help, he set up the Willie Thorne Snooker Centre in Leicester. His form began to improve after that world quarter final and he entered the top 16 at the end of the 1982/83.

The Leicester cueman became known as ‘The Maximum Man’ having, he claims, made more 147s in practice than any other player, including one with both legs in plaster! But he has only made one in tournament play, at the 1987 UK Championship.

His first ranking semi-final came in the 1983 Grand Prix and the following season he achieved his only victory in a ranking event when he beat his great friend, Cliff Thorburn, to win the 1985 Mercantile Credit Classic. Two more finals came the following season in the UK Championship and the British Open.

He is still a familiar figure on the circuit as a commentator for BBC Sport.

Willie will be attending Comic Con Scotland on both days of the event 10-11 November 2018

He turned professional in November 1972 and his first professional event was the 1973 World Championship when he lost in the first round 9-8 to Cliff Thorburn. He failed to qualify in 1974 but the following year reached the semi-finals, beaten by Eddie Charlton 19-12. 1977 saw him in another semi-final, losing to Thorburn.

The whole nation shared his tears of joy as he beat Cliff Thorburn for his first major title. Still better was to come, of course, and the season ended with that famous win over Steve Davis to make him champion of the world.

He suffered the ‘Crucible curse’ when he returned to defend his title, losing in the opening round.

The Northern Irishman was famous for his ‘upside down’ glasses which become his trade mark.

He retired from pro snooker in 2000, though he still plays in senior and exhibition events. Taylor is now one of the leading commentators on snooker for BBC Sport.
