And now, the best news there is, the best news there was, and the best news there ever will be.

Earlier this year, WWE Hall of Famer Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart revealed that he’d begun a battle with prostate cancer. Hart underwent a successful surgery in early February, and was told that the cancer was completely contained, and that he wouldn’t need chemotherapy or radiation treatment. That news got even better thanks to an interview with legendary WWE play-by-play man Jim Ross on Idobi/77 WABC Radio’s The Gunz Show.

JR says that he’s stayed in contact with The Hitman via text, and that Bret is officially in the clear.

“They removed the cancer by removing his prostate. His cancer is a non-issue now, thank God. All issues are resolved and addressed … so that’s the good news about Bret Hart.”

Like we said, the best news. Your “cancer tapped out” jokes are encouraged and appreciated.

Of course, with all stories related to cancer, it’s a good idea to stay mindful of your health and remain conscious about what’s going on with your body even when you get great news like this. Cancer sucks and has a way of creeping back in to f*ck with you when you least expect it, but here’s the truth: Bret made prostate cancer look like a chump, so if cancer tries to mess with him again, we know he’ll kick its ass.
