Bret Hart 2012

Bret “The Hitman” Hart called into 680 All News Radio out of Toronto, Canada last week. Here are some highlights.

Bret Hart Appreciation Night: “That was really special. Much more special than people might realize; I really didn’t know any of that was going to happen … I knew I was going to go out, and I thought I was going to say a couple words, but I didn’t think it was really any kind of a big deal … I thought that what Vince said to me – it was really nice to finally hear him give me some credit on a real level. It was face to face in front of the fans, and some of the things he said I’ll probably carry with me forever.”

Does the Hitman miss the wrestling business? “Sometimes. I miss being useful. I feel like with certain wrestlers I can give them a lot of advice and tell them things that can help him. There’s a lot of the wrestlers that are out there today, and I don’t think they got their wrestling skills from Hulk Hogan or Ultimate Warrior. You watch these young wrestlers today, and the way they’re wrestling you know these guys are from the Bret Hart, Owen Hart and Shawn Michaels era. I think I was part of this intricate change in wrestling that took wrestling from the cartoon storylines that Hulk Hogan was presenting, and I made it more about the wrestling.”

Who does Bret enjoy watching now? “Daniel Bryan, and Punk – there’s actually quite a few of them that are just really good; they come up with really great stuff. When I was at the end of my career, I used to come up with a new move or some kind of a new idea – like Goldberg with the steel plate in Toronto – something that’d never been done before. The Figure Four around the ring post was another one. You come up with new stuff that nobody has ever done before. I was the first wrestler to take out those stairs; I don’t know if anyone cares, but I know nobody ever touched those stairs until Bret Hart got thrown into them and knocked them over like boxes … When I watch the wrestlers today, there’s so many good innovators. I love the innovators and the guys who come up with new stuff.”

    Like the old saying goes…. Bret screwed Bret, and Bret also screwed the fans by holding onto such a grudge with Vince. He fucked up his career big time, in my opinion. Some of the best days of the WWE were when Bret was on top of the game. Now, he can’t even show up without a freaking limp!
