WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart will reportedly be the manager of the ROH World Tag Team Champions and AAA World Tag Team Champions, FTR. He will accompany the double tag champs at an indie event hosted by Big Time Wrestling at Webster, Massachusetts. FTR had been asking for this for months. Finally, it has come to fruition. The show will take place in June 2022.
My role model. My mentor. The greatest I’ve ever seen do this. Without Bret, there is no FTR, no Revival, no Scott Dawson, no Dax Harwood. I am what I am, because he was what he was.
Happy Birthday, Hitman.
