Bret Hart’s wife Stephanie Hart is a great match for Bret because she’s just about as cool as he is. A lot of people remember Bret Hart from the 1980’s and 1990’s as one of the undisputed kings in the world of professional wrestling. The guy is a wrestling and entertainment icon. He was my favorite wrestler when I was a kid. Stephanie is originally from San Francisco and now resides in Calgary with her husband. The two were married in 2010 and she is Bret’s third wife. There’s most definitely a huge age gap between them, but trust me I ain’t judging. Age gaps are fun! You get to teach each other about generational stuff like hashtagging and Snapchat (for Stephanie) and Led Zeppelin and punk music (for Bret). Seriously, being twenty in 1977 is pretty underrated. There’s a bunch more crappier times to be twenty years old.
It should be noted that Bret Hart officially divorced his first wife hours before his stroke in 2002, according to his Wiki page. Sadly, the only wrestler that visited Bret in the hospital after his stroke was Roddy Piper. I really do not understand that. I mean, you’ve gotta’ be kidding me. The reason I’m mentioning the health problem is because Bret Hart’s wife Stephanie Hart has had to deal with a lot of the repercussions of the stroke. Apparently it paralyzed half of Bret’s body for months and left him with a kind of emotional imbalance. On top of all that, poor Bret announced that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer on February 1. He’s since undergone surgery, and he’s said that things are “looking up.” Well, I really hope so.
Stephanie has been a total rock throughout this new trauma. Bret Hart’s wife has seen a lot of physical problems plague Bret now that he’s in his late 50’s. Let me give you an example: he broke his wrist way back in 1981 and only now got it fixed by having metal rods inserted into it. Who do you think goes with him to the hospital and sticks by his side for stuff like that? Granted, wrist surgery isn’t that big a deal, but nobody likes having rods stuck in their wrist. Just imagine how much body/pain issues this guy has to deal with all the time. Retired pro wrestlers have chronic arthritis, tendinitis, joint pain like you wouldn’t believe. They rival football players, hockey players, and boxers for longterm physical messed-uppedness. No more sharpshooters for Bret. Just good times with the family and Stephanie.
