The only way this could have happened is if Shawn and Bret (and probably HHH) made peace on some level. I also assume Bret is doing this in some way to help out his family members in the Hart Dynasty. Logically, he will become their manager, since they havent been evil enough for him to want to oppose them. Maybe he will take over as GM of RAW and rule with an iron fist? I couldnt see him being a heel though. This is great news for me, I cant wait to see him!!
If only the Hart Dynasty had gotten a real push instead of feuding with Cryme Tyme for three months. A Harts vs. DX match for the unified tag belts (with Bret in his family's corner) at Mania would've been pretty sweet.
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.
Crazy thing is, this'll probably be seen as a win by Dixie Carter. Sure, Impact will get crushed in the ratings and WWE now has its biggest WrestleMania ace in the hole maybe ever, but Vince took notice of something TNA did!

This is wrestling. A 3 month build up is long enough for anyone to get pushed and put over. If this happens I will freaking mark out. But I'm not counting on it.
There'll be definite Bret/Vince interaction and probably the Hart Foundation too, But I'd more expect Kidd and Smith to turn on Bret and be Vince's stooges. If there's any HBK interaction at all, it'll be them kayfabe burying the hatchet and carrying on as faces together.
I think we will start seeing more of the seeds of HBK's return. His challenge to Taker was kinda dickish and lately he has been doing heel things like superkicking HHH at Survivor Series. Hart has a heel doesn't make too much sense, Shawn as a heel does. I don't think Hart will wrestler, but special guest referee for Mania is more then likely say Taker/HBK.
Bret also said in his interview with Meltzer that he thought the DVD they were doing wasn't necessarily a Hart Foundation DVD but one about the Hart family, which means there will be a ton of Owen Hart stuff on it. That's pretty much the best way to handle it since doing an Owen Hart DVD would just be too uncomfortable.
Since the usual suspects (Meltzer et al) appear to have let this news pass them by, I thought I'd post it here. It appears that Hell in a Cell drew approximately 210,000 buys and Bragging Rights drew approx. 140,000 buys.
