When it comes to wrestling literature, it doesn't get much better than Hitman by Bret Hart, a 593-page journey into the seamy underbelly of professional wrestling. From Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling to Vince McMahon's WWF and finally the depressing downfall of WCW, Bret saw it all and lived to tell about it. In between talking about Davey Boy, Owen, Hogan, Andre, and Jim the Anvil, he's also not afraid to talk about all the ring rats and infidelity he succumbed to along the way. On the first of a two-part Hitman episode, we discuss all things Hart Family and all things Bret and Vince.
