The Excellence of Execution, the Hitman and the Anvil. Two time tag team champions in the WWF. A legendary unit from an oft remembered period in wrestling history. For the first time ever, the Hart Foundation are ready to discuss their entire career on RF VIDEO’s exclusive new shoot interview! Bret “the Hitman” Hart, 2006 WWE Hall Of Famer and one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step in the ring. Jim “the Anvil” Neidhart, the power and promo man of the team. Together, they are back for a reunion of sorts, and both men are going to have to answer some hard hitting questions that have been on their fan’s minds for years.


We sat Jim Neidhart and Bret Hart down together to discuss their glorious tag team run and were amazed at the stories they were able to weave. This is one shoot you are going to want to go out of your way to watch as both Bret and Jim were in rare form. From the Hart Foundation’s humble beginnings, to their first time together as a tag team, to their entire WWE run, Bret and Jim brought their A game. From their legendary feuds with Demolition, Strike Force, The Bolsheviks, The British Bulldogs, The Fabulous Rougeaus, Rhythm & Blues, and The Nasty Boys, and covering all of the backstage hinjinx, this shoot has it all! From Bret and Jim’s solo runs, to reforming the Foundation to go after the tag team titles. Youll feel like Jimmy Hart while listening to these two guys talk about their historic run together.

Get the low down on their entire WWE run, including many famous six man tags that were main events across the country.
