Was a wrestler, turned manager. Managed Dusty Rhodes, Pak Song, One Man Gang, Abdullah The Butcher, Gino Hernandez, Chris Adams, Bruiser Brody, The Great Kabuki, Terry Funk just to name a few. Was a successful booker for Fritz, Eddie Graham. He seemed like a very evil man and very tough for a manager. Was very street-wise and was part of several famous angles.

I really enjoyed Hart in GCW. At that point in time, I was wishing he would go to the WWF. He had some great cerebral interviews.  Hart got somewhat overbearing and involved too much in WCCW.  
I would have liked to have seen him in the WWF during the expansion.  He would have been a lot better than Slick and Johnny V.

I enjoyed much of Hart's work, especially in WCCW, where he was a great mouthpiece for wrestlers like Kabuki and Abdullah. He came across as knowing his stuff, could mix it in the ring (a great seller) and was good on the mike.

Never was a big fan. Only marginally interested when he spoke. Was much more influential behind the scenes than his character on-air

Hart said he was in the WWF for one day in the fall of 1984. He was at a St.louis taping and he was all set to go to work.  They wanted him to manage Beefcake at one point. He had a bad experience with Mr.Fugi and Jay Strongbow. two guys he never got along with and things fell apart. he said he was the one that hooked The Freebirds up with the WWF in 1984.

Gary Hart was a tremendous talent, there was something about his delivery in promos that would draw me in. And he was a big part of the Ric Flair/Terry Funk feud,a personal favorite.

One of the greatest ever. I know im in the minority though I never understood why. I thought Gary was excellent and even made some silly gimmicks sound like serious threats
