Bret Hart Confesses To Drawing Wrestlers In Orgies On Locker Room Blackboard

WWE Legend Bret Hart is known as the ‘Excellence of Execution’ and has revealed that this nickname works for both his in-ring prowess and his artistic ability with a stick of chalk.

At a recent Highspots Virtual Signing, Bret Hart confessed that he regularly drew his fellow wrestlers in an unexpected way on locker room blackboards around the world

The WWE Hall of Famer spoke about covertly sketching members of the roster in orgies, something he says was mainly out of boredom.

“I remember drawing a lot of wrestlers on the blackboard in the locker room. I used to draw wrestlers in orgies and stuff on the blackboard,”

“Really, it was out of boredom. In the beginning, nobody knew it was me so I would draw this big orgy on the blackboard and all these sexual positions and stuff. It was just to make guys laugh. No one knew it was me. I would be getting dressed, there would be a big orgy on the board, and people were like, ‘Who did that?’ ‘I don’t know.’ George Wells would come into the dressing room and he would touch it up. Everyone would come and they thought he was doing the drawings and he’s going, ‘I swear to God I didn’t draw it.’”

After some time, Bret Hart was found out, and wrestlers then began asking him to depict “perverted made up versions” of things that happened on nights out. One man in particular who got a huge kick out of the art was the legendary Andre The Giant.

“Eventually, they knew it was me and then wrestlers would ask me to draw them. They would go, ‘This happened last night’ and then I would draw a perverted made up version of what happened the night before at the bar with some girl. I would draw something and I would notice Andre The Giant would laugh so hard. He really loved my drawings. The crazier, the better. When I say Andre laughed, he was in a lot of pain, but he would laugh so hard and loud.”

Bret Hart said that, while most of the guys got a laugh out of the scenes, Steve Lombardi, better known as the Brooklyn Brawler, “got mad” about being included. However, he soon changed his mind when he saw the fun Andre was having.

“I used to draw Steve Lombardi in the middle of the orgies and he would get mad. I would go, ‘Steve, I’m drawing for Andre. I won’t draw you ever again, but the next time I draw you, just stop and look over at Andre. If he’s not laughing his head off, I will never draw you again.’ He came up to me and said, ‘You can draw me anytime you want.’ Andre used to laugh and laugh hard.”

Eventually, the former WWE Champion got on the wrong side of one of the agents and went to Vince McMahon about it. However, McMahon not only didn’t mind, but even encouraged Bret Hart to continue

“I drew one of the agents on the blackboard and he got really mad,”

“He told me to never draw him again and ‘what if my wife saw that’ and he got really upset.

“I remember thinking, ‘what would your wife be doing in the dressing room anyway?’ He gave me hell for it. The next day, I show up at the TV tapings and Vince McMahon is standing there and he had his arms crossed and was holding a big piece of chalk. As I walk past him, he hands me the chalk and goes, ‘You draw anything you want, any time you want, and if anyone has a problem with it, you come see me.’ So I started drawing anything I wanted and it got to be a tradition where a lot of guys had hurt feelings because I didn’t draw them.”

Bret Hart left WWE in 1997 to join WCW following the infamous ‘Montreal Screwjob’. He would eventually return to the company in 2006 when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He would be inducted a second time, as part of The Hart Foundation, in 2019.
