Hart is divorced from his former wife Andrea Redding, with whom he has five children: Brit, Bruce Jr., Rhett, Tory and Lara. Bruce married for the second time on January 18, 2007 to Rachel Overholt, a 28-year-old former student. Their first child Davis Gene Hart was born on October 26, 2007 in Toronto.
Bruce Hart formed a tag team with Brian Pillman named Bad Company in Stampede Wrestling.
Hart is retired as a wrestler and currently working as a substitute teacher. He ran Stampede Wrestling with his brother, Ross Hart, but since 2005, he has role within the company or with training wrestlers.
In a June 29 2007 interview for "The Calgary Sun", Bruce Hart commented that Chris Benoit was a "delusional juice freak", saying he was not surprised at all by the recent actions, involving the murder of his wife, and son. "The last time I saw him he was in pretty rough shape mentally", said Bruce Hart. He also said "I didn't know all the details, but I knew it wasn't good. I was not at all shocked [by what happened]." "I've known too many wrestlers who couldn't separate the character they play on television from their real life," said Hart, who has wrestled professionally, promoted wrestling and trained wrestlers all his life. "Wrestlers start believing their press clippings and what is said on television. It's like an actor leaving the set, but still playing the part. There's a delusional element to this. I've seen it over and over again. Some people can't separate the character from real life, and Chris was one of those people." Hart was also deeply angered that World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit on Monday Night RAW before they learned Benoit had been responsible for the deaths of his family. "I kept hearing 'He was a nice guy, a great guy.' For them to do a tribute show was disgraceful.
The book Ring of Hell stated that Bruce was always abusive of and jealous towards Benoit during his days training in the Hart Family Dungeon.
Bret Hart has since publicly condemned his brother for his harsh comments about Benoit.
Bruce made harsh comments on Davey Boy Smith's death, at the age of 39 of a heart attack and, saying "Davey paid the price with steroid cocktails and human growth hormones." At the time, Davey had been dating Bruce's estranged wife. His daughter is former WWE Women's Champion, Julia Fletcher aka:The Goddess of Power & Destruction.
