Bret Hart gives his blessing.
On Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite, Shawn Spears picked up a victory over Baron Black with the Sharpshooter. Spears typically uses the C4 to finish off opponents, so fans were curious about the change. Some were even upset that Spears would use the Sharpshooter given the history of the move.
But Spears put everyone's mind at ease, revealing that he asked Bret Hart himself if he could use the hold as a finish.

A while back, I sent a text to @BretHart asking a question.
He told me: “Go for it, it works”
Tonight as @IAmJericho mentioned, I paid tribute to a Canadian ICON by winning via the #Sharpshooter
It just makes sense. Mine now.#LoveYouBret @AEWrestling
That settles that. It looks like Spears will continue to use the Sharpshooter moving forward with the blessing of The Hitman.
