Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

A glimpse into the fascinating world of professional wrestling can be had in a new memoir from one of the industry's legends. In Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling, Bret Hart recounts his remarkable 23-year career and his life thus far. From the early days of being trained and stretched in his father Stu Hart's legendary basement in Calgary, to the heights of sports entertainment as a seven-time World Heavyweight Champion, Bret Hart recounts the ups and downs-and there were many of both-in a highly readable and engrossing book. Bret Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006, and in 2004 he was voted the 39th Greatest Canadian. Published by Random House, Hitman retails for $35.00, but since it's already a number one bestseller you can find it for far less than that. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Bret Hart. Good morning, Mr. Hart.
