Just wait until it shows up on Animal Planet. (I think that's the channel where they make two robotic animals to see which one would win in a fight.)
I doubt a bear could lift a shark out of the water. I assume we're talking "average" sizes for each animal; a great white is still large, even if not Jaws. Given enough water for the shark to move and not be unfairly hindered, the bear would have to actually swim if he fell in, and then the shark would be at the advantage, due to having better maneuverability and speed of attack.
Of course, the shark would probably have frozen to death by the time it got near the bear. I don't know if the arctic is a natural habitat for sharks (unless the ice the bear is on is rapidly melting).
It might all depend on which of them "flinches" first and makes the first move. The shark of course is entirely not designed to attack a land animal and doesn't have any techniques to do so -- if it tried to shoot out of the water at the bear, it could get stuck on land. The bear at least has the instinct for hunting fish, but nothing nearly that large in that much water. I don't think polar bears hunt walruses by chasing them down underwater. (A walruses tusks might be more dangerous than a shark though, because of the reach and ability to turn the head.)
