I don't think it matters anymore what's in character for Bret or what's not. He's already done what he avoided doing for the past however-many years: reconciling with Vince on a business level. He's sold out (in a good way, mind you - a necessary evil maybe)...in order to get access to his legacy.

(Saw this on www.PWTorch.com)

Bret Hart talked about his decision to appear at the WWE Hall of Fame for his induction in April in an interview with Canada's Slam website. "It took a lot of diplomacy," Hart said. "But I think we just softened. Vince McMahon called me up when I had my stroke in 2002, and I think that was a big step towards where we are now. I always appreciated the fact that he called me and that softened a lot of the bad feelings between us." Bret had been "on the fence" about appearing at the Hall of Fame ceremony just two weeks ago. Also in the interview, he talked about one of the main reasons he agreed to be part of the DVD. "The title of the DVD was to be Screwed," he said, "and when Vince called me to partake in it, I said that I would never be a part of it. When I eventually saw it, it was nearly complete, and it was right up there with the Ultimate Warrior's DVD. I told Vince that my career was never about what had happened at Survivor Series or about Owen's death." He also spoke about his series of matches with Ric Flair. "Flair and I had pretty good matches, by Flair's standards anyway," Hart explained. "But on the day that I won the belt, and from that point on, we starting having really shitty matches. He sort of, accidentally-on-purpose, began screwing up the matches, getting the endings wrong. I found that this was happening consistently, and I ended up going to Vince McMahon and telling him that Flair was sabotaging the matches. They ended up calling us together to try and sort it out, and I remember him confessing to me that he was having problems with his wife, at home, that he was distracted, and he apologized for not being able to give me the matches that we had had before."

Here's the whole article:

In a sort of "slowing down to look at the car crash" type of way, I kinda want the WWE to release the "Screwed" dvd version just to see how bad it really was.

April 1st was also the date of the Gimmick Battle Royal in 2001, which everyone was convinced was gonna be some kind of gag. Of course, having Vince say it was an "April Fool" only for Bret to show up the next night is excellent grounds for baseless speculation.

And I tend to lean towards Cubs' and Shapiro's take on the situation. It seems like everyone forgets who we're talking about when it comes to contemplating an on-air return for Bret. The guy doesn't care about WWE angles, particularly when they're as shitty as they are right now. It's not a fresh situation, something that some newer fans don't seem to realise. This has been going on for years. And he's not gonna break his moratorium on storyline involvement just coz they made the nice gesture of putting him in the Hall Of Fame. An in-ring speech, maybe, but thats all I would even think about expecting.

I kinda want BG to team up with Kong, just because I think it would be fun. Jimmy Rave's the Move That Rocked the World, well rocked mine as I don't think he's won a match in TNA yet and I remember him using a Pedigree in ROH when I was watching.
