Bret Hart in the HOF

I don't understand why Bret Hart would agree to do the WWE Hall of Fame this year. I'm totally cool with him doing at some point, and in fact I think it would be a really nice moment. The problem is this year's WrestleMania has nothing that will draw, Vince knows that, and it also has Vince McMahon vs. Shawn Michaels. Thus, Vince McMahon is clearly going to build Mania around the false tease of Bret Hart appearing in that match to settle the score with Vince and/or Shawn. Given that Bret wanted to do the HOF as a classy way to recognize what he did in his career, and not to do a tacky angle with Vince based around Montreal, if I were Bret I would have waited for another year.

It wouldn't surprise me if Bret insisted upon, as a provision of his coming, that WWE not even suggest of his involvement in any angles. The interesting thing here is how WWE handles a lucrative opportunity. Will they push hard for a Hall of Fame TV special on USA (they got only Hogan's induction on Spike last year)? Will Bret and the other Hall of Famers appear on the PPV as has been the custom the last two years? Will any of this draw PPV buys?

Well the good side is at least he is in.

I would expect Bret would be willing to appear at WrestleMania waiving, but people are going to expect a run-in during Vince-Shawn. Maybe they'll be able to convince him to do so, and maybe not. Bret might also think that if things go south he can just pull out altogether, but we'll see how feasible that scenario is.
