  • The Hart Foundation eventually became faces when Bret Hart was attacked by the Rougeau Brothers but Jim Neidhart came into the ring and cleared the Rougeau Brothers.  Before this incident there was concern that there was friction between Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart over the managerial services of Jimmy Hart.  Jimmy Hart was so upset at the Hart Foundation that he gave the Rougeau's half of the Foundation's contract.
