1997 is considered one of the very best years in WWF history. While the company was slowly moving towards more contemporary content, storylines and rivalries would get presented in a way that also appealed to older fans. The biggest WWF storyline of 1997 concerned Bret Hart and his heel turn.
Bret Hart felt wrestling fans had turned their back on him in favour of guys like Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels. Hart decided to unite his family and reform the Hart Foundation, a group that consisted of Bret, Owen Hart, The British Bulldog, Jim Neidhart and family friend Brian Pillman. While Bret would rip into fans in the States he would also praise his fans in Europe and Canada, and this created a unique dynamic where Bret and the Hart Foundation would get cheered everywhere except the USA.
The Hart Foundation came home to Calgary, Alberta, Canada for the WWF’s 16th In Your House event, aptly titled “Canadian Stampede”. At the Canadian Stampede show, The Hart Foundation were treated like heroes by the audience in attendance while their opponents were booed, opponents who would normally get cheered in the States. This created a unique atmosphere in the Calgary Saddledome that the WWE has never been able to recreate. Along with this, In Your House: Canadian Stampede featured some of the very best in-ring action the WWF had produced all year. In the end, the PPV received critical acclaim and it’s considered one of the best pay per views of 1997. The event was headlined by The Hart Foundation vs Ken Shamrock, Goldust, The Legion of Doom and Stone Cold Steve Austin in a 10 Man Tag match. This video covers the entire show.

    The main event may have been the most fun Steve Austin has had in a PPV match. He so obviously relishes in getting to be the nasty heel (again). He was having the time of his life. Only thing I didn't like in the main event was the Owen Hart comeback, where he 'saves' Bret Hart. There are three team mates on the apron that just stand around.

      @Old School uh Bret talking about why his family friends and peers ended up in an early grave warning the public or issues they were going on at the time when they were working together is something that's fair game. Bret a real one we need more guys like him in society the truth should always come out on society that is the problem with society so many lies and people wanting to bury the truth

      @Old School I see your point why you are offended. You also have to acknowledge he will say good things about them Bret a real one he a straight shooter. He also has talked about his own affairs and drug problems so I dont have a problem with things like that. Bret sharing these stories I'm sure its helped many people not make the same choices. As long as Bret not making up lies or have malice in his words I have no problem. You can hear whenever Bret speaks about Davey and his issues it breaks his heart
