Bret Hart inducted into the Canada Walk of Fame by Chris Jericho and helped by The Rock

Bret “Hit Man” Hart was inducted into the Canada Walk of Fame this weekend, another top honor for the former five-time WWE champion.

Bret was inducted by fellow Canadian and former WWE and AEW champion himself Chris Jericho and was assisted by a video from none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Hart said a special thank you to both men for taking their time out of their busy schedule to do that for him and said that he greatly appreciated the gesture from their part.

“While sadly this was cut out of my speech due to time constraints, I do want to say thank you to each and every wrestler I ever worked with. Thank you to the many Canadian wrestlers that paved the way for me: my father Stu, Gene Kiniski, Abdullah the Butcher, “Killer” Kowalski, “The Stomper”, Ed Carpentier, “Whipper” Watson, Sky Low Low, Rocky Johnson, Pat Patterson, Roddy Piper,” Hart wrote in a post on Instagram.

He also said that many other Canadians who filled his shoes after his career ended will someday deserve the same honor, mentioning Chris Jericho, Edge, Trish Stratus, Kevin Owens, Kenny Omega, Natalya, and Owen.

The Canada Walk of Fame Twitter account also thanked The Rock for his special appearance and The Rock replied saying that Bret was a mentor to him when he didn’t have to be and when there weren’t many “mentorship programs” back then. “He gave me guidance and I’ll always be grateful. Congrats my friend on your incredible accomplishment,” Johnson wrote.
