Bret Hart recently spoke to Sean Mooney on his Prime Time podcast where he revealed he doesn’t think that Goldberg should be in the WWE Hall Of Fame. Below are some highlights with a H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.
On Goldberg not deserving his HOF induction:
“I wish that Bill Goldberg had never kicked me in the head as hard as he could. I don’t know how you give a guy a Hall of Fame thing for hurting as many wrestlers as Bill Goldberg hurt, and without consequence – he usually got a pat on the back and told how good of job he did out there when you’re scraping the wrestler that worked with him off the mat. When Bill Goldberg kicked me in the head I honest to god I lost about $16 million in like one second. I just signed with WCW for $3 million a year for another 3 years on top of the 2 years I had left on my original contract, so it was bad timing and unfortunate,” said Hart.
On wrestlers not being genuine with their speeches:
“So many wrestlers that were up there (in the Hall of Fame) never thanked anybody. They thanked Stephanie, and they thanked Vince, and they thanked Triple H, and I thought it was such bullshit. They should thank the wrestlers that made them, and the wrestlers that worked with them. I was so disappointed at how so many of them never thanked the wrestlers that went to all the trouble to help them. Most of them had no recollection of anyone helping them,” said Hart.
