Hart & Soul

The WWE released DVD boxset - Hart & Soul : The Hart Family Anthology - made for sad viewing.

The documentary portion of the DVD tried its best to cram the story of the Hart family in to a little over ninety minutes. When you have a famous patriarch like Stu Hart and the number of children he fathered as well as the sons-in-laws he gained along the way, it could never be a definitive piece in the time that was given.

As I said, I found some of the DVD sad because it would have been impossible to document the family without having to cover the tragedies that they had to go through.

With that said, it was still a good attempt at telling the Hart story and can compliment Bret Hart's autobiography - a book I also recommend.

I've only just finished watching the second of the three discs. These consist of matches from the WWE archives and I've seen them before but they have never been in a set like this before. I'm talking about classics like the British Bulldog versus Bret Hart from SummerSlam 1992 in Wembley Stadium as well as the awesome bout between the Bulldog and Owen Hart from Germany in 1997.

The documentary - as noted earlier - was a good attempt at telling the story. However, the additional matches make it a great collection.
