Hart: watch his story on the latest WWE Special

Bret "The Hitman" Hart is a true legend of the ring.

The Canadian, regarded as one of the greatest technical wrestlers ever to set foot between the ropes, won the WWE Championship five times and WWE Tag Team Championships twice during his storied grappling career.

Whether he was banding with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart in the pink-and-black-clad Hart Foundation, wrestling The British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship at Wembley during the 1992 edition of SummerSlam, or battling Shawn Michael for the WWE Title, Hart always delivered.

And if you watch this month's WWE Special - showing in the later part of this week and across the weekend - you will be able to see some of the Excellence of Execution's finest matches as selected by the man himself.

So tune in to find out whether Hart chose his epic showdowns with Ric Flair, Goldberg, Hulk Hogan, Bob Backlund, Stone Cold Steve Austin and current WWE commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler, not to mention the infamous 1997 Montreal Screwjob.
