Quote Bret Hart recently took part in an online Q&A. Here are the highlights…

His Current Relationship with Vince McMahon: "The last conversations we've had have been good. He seems to always be very warm and friendly with me. I would say he's on the very best of terms with me. I think the last time I really talked to him, my knee was pretty swollen. He wanted me to go out to the ring in Philadelphia — and I did go out — but we were talking about our various injuries, since he had just had hip surgery. We've both sort of realized that we're not getting any younger."

What's the Greatest Compliment He Ever Received?: "(Long pause) I think it's that I was often told by the wrestlers I worked with that I was their best match. That was every single one of them, from Mr. Perfect to my brother Owen to the Bulldog to the Undertaker to Steve Austin — almost every single one of them pulled me aside and said the best match they ever had was the one against me. The list goes on — 1-2-3 Kid, Kevin Nash, Roddy Piper, Yokozuna — and I think it's true. Every match was a different story, and we made magic. The other thing is that I never hurt anybody in all the years I wrestled. I had wrestlers come up to me and thank me for the match every night, thanking me because there was never any extra aches and pains or injuries. No animals were harmed in the making of my movies!"


Not sure Vince will appreciate Bret making out Vince realises he's getting old, as Vince likes to think he's much younger than he is.

His greatest compliment is far fetched. They would have told him they had one of their best matches with him, but not the very best in each case.

He always mentions how he never hurt anyone in the ring, but that should be expected of you in that business without bringing it up like it's an added bonus.

Bret Hart should read Jimmy Korderas' book because he says in there that every wrestler after every match would shake hands and thank each other for the match, even down to the Refs - in other words the shaking of the hands and the thanking is protocol.

As mentioned before Bret Hart has hurt other wrestlers in the ring, deliberately as well, which is ten times worse than by accident, so his claim about never ever hurting anyone is a load of old crock as well.

All in all, the interview sounds much like any others he's given - putting himself over and above everyone else and lying through his teeth while doing it.

Quote Bret Hart relayed his frustration with late brother Owen Hart's exclusion from the WWE Hall of Fame in a recent interview with 660News, a Calgary-based radio station.

“You know, it’s time to remember what he was. He was a great wrestler, and WWE fans around the world remember Owen, everyday. And, they ask me, everyday. It’s kind of childish,” said Hart.

Hart noted to the radio station that he's considering writing a book chronicling the life of Owen, who died on May 23, 1999 at a WWE pay-per-view event when an equipment malfunction occurred during his entrance from the rafters of Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri.

F4WOnline.com reported last November that some WWE employees were lobbying for Hart to be enshrined at this year's Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which took place on April 6 at Madison Square Garden. The enshrinement did not materialize, and may not ever because his widow, Martha Hart, would not allow it, according to brother Smith Hart.

"Because she blames the wrestling business in its entirety for his death," he revealed in a Twitter post last year. "She is the sole owner of his estate. With Martha, there will never B a way, perhaps his kids may eventually make the choice. But that's at least 20 yrs in future."

In April, Martha reached a a settlement with WWE in her lawsuit over royalties and the use of her husband's image. Terms, however, were not disclosed.
Normally I take Bret Hart's interviews with a grain of salt, but this time I'm taking his comments at face value. I think it's another example of the frustration within the Hart Family regarding Martha. Does she let their kids interact with any of the Hart Family?

LMAO! A bit childish. Bret Hart takes the fucking biscuit, he really does. If he can spend 15 years bitching, whining, moaning and complaining about a screwjob that didn't actually screw him out of anything, then I think he should be able to more than empathise with Martha Hart who lost her Husband to a fucking stunt that had no business being in the the pro wrestling business in the first place.

Someone should tell Bret Hart that the epitome of childish would be him spending 15 years whining and sniveling about the MSJ

have to agree with Bret on this one, but also agree with Della; it's a bit rich Hart labelling anyone elses actions as childish. that he bitches more about the MSJ and not about the Goldberg match shows that his priorities are somewhat off.

it's not that the stunt doesn't have a place in wrestling; it had been done before, and let's face it, whether it's wrestling or sports entertainment, you still go there to be entertained, and that is what was being aimed at. whether people got lax with setting up the gear, there were problems with the equipment used or whatever else, I still don't see it as WWF's fault, and am only glad that Bret has stopped whinging about that too.

WWE Hall Of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart recently spoke with Talk Sport while in the U.K. to promote his speaking tour. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On his thoughts on the current WWE product: "I think I was a better storyteller than any of the wrestlers they've got today. I watched Wrestlemania this year and there's no drama anymore. They do some amazing stuff, there are some incredible athletes, but people don't know how to tell a story.

"Wrestling has it's flows, it will change again as people get tired of the 'phoney' wrestling, I watched my match with Davey Boy at Wembley with some journalists in a bar and they almost bought into it like it was real. The fact that fans reacted so strongly to those two British Wrestlers (Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate) shows you it might be going back in the other direction."

On Owen Hart not being in the WWE Hall Of Fame: "Like a lot of people, if he's not in the WWE Hall of Fame, then what kind of Hall of Fame is it? I'm embarrassed on their part they can take so many great wrestlers and not include them in the Hall of Fame.

"I don't have any problem with anyone who is in there, but I think Demolition should be in there, that Dynamite Kid should be in there, that Davey Boy should be in there. I'm embarrassed Owen isn't in there. Owen was one of the most respected and admired in the business for his integrity alone. Why they won't acknowledge him is beyond me?"

On Eric Bischoff saying that he didn't bring anything creative to the table when they worked together in WCW: "Eric Bischoff is a total complete idiot, maybe the single stupidest idiot that ever got into wrestling. He never came through on anything he said, he had zero ideas on wrestling, and if you went to him with ideas he'd always have some ridiculous reason he couldn't do it.

"I've heard him say I came there a broken man (after the Montreal Screwjob), it's absolutely an insult to me. I wanted so hard to make a difference, I wanted to go in there and do everything I could possibly do to get even with Vince. For him to suggest that is an insult to the highest order. Don't get me talking about Eric Bischoff, I'll take my coat off and come out of retirement!"

Check out the complete Bret Hart interview at TalkSport.com.

He used to blame Martha for Owen not going in (see earlier in this thread) and now he's changed his tune to blaming E. He comes across as bitter to the wrong people because if he could be put in I am sure he would have been long ago.
 
Great praise of Dunne and Bate. Through all the whinging over the years, he's always had a soft spot for wrestlers from the UK.
 
Great words on Bischoff LOL He's right though. The way Vince treated him, he would have been well up for his WCW stint to try and help them be better than the competition.

Quote Bret Hart spoke with Wrestle Talk TV Extra. Here are some of the things he had to say about Triple H.
 
"I have a certain amount of respect for Triple H. I remember when he first came in, I remember commenting on stuff that he did. Because I'd usually give wrestlers my thoughts and try to help them on stuff... Triple H has always been a good wrestler. But great? What is he now, a 1,000 time world champion? How great really is he?
 
"I look at [CM] Punk... I can look at certain wrestlers and I go, this guy is an innovator. Like a Rey Mysterio, who's done stuff that no one has ever thought of before. Punk has done stuff -- really unique moves and you go, 'gee I've never seen anything like that before.' They innovate all the time, and they create new sequences and moves and things.
 
"Then you look at someone like Triple H. When I look at him -- he's always had a good look as far as his body went -- he always had a pretty muscular physique. But you look at someone like Hunter and you wonder, what has he really done. One move that he ever created that nobody ever saw before or some highspots or an idea for a match... He's mostly a guy that just showed up and they made him. He's always been a decent wrestler -- I would consider him a good wrestler and pretty talented. But great? I don't know, I don't think so.
 
"What has he ever done that's great? He's never had a great match, I don't think ever. Whenever I look at Triple H's matches, including the last one he had with Undertaker -- and I don't really mean it as a knock -- but I told myself before I watched it because I'm trying to like Paul now these days, that I want to see him do something to make me think he's got greatness in him.
 
"Before Triple H wrestled Undertaker last year, I remember watching it and going, 'I can picture the whole match in my head, I can tell you exactly what this match is going to be like and how it's going to go. And I remember watching it and it went exactly how I predicted it... I thought it was mediocre at best, maybe a 4 out of 10, or 3 out of 10.
 
"I think Paul is a little overrated... overrated for being great. I can sit here and tell you that there was one match that he ever had with anybody that I thought was great. It's kind of a shame, he should have a great match somewhere with somebody. And you'd think that he would have had it by now, but I don't think he's a great wrestler."

  
Ahh, Bret. Some people think he's old and bitter now. I think he's a guy that has money and isn't afraid to speak his mind. No matter how stoopid and bias his opinions might be.
 
Bret thinks Rey is an innovator? Bret must not watch much lucha libre. Bret thinks Punk is an innovator? Bret must not watch much pureresu. Maybe he could say that each guy gave those moves their own personal style. But neither has actually "innovated" anything in the ring.
 
Now comes the interesting stuff. Bret says Triple H is not a "great" wrestler. That's a bold and ballsy move by Bret. But... I think he makes a couple of good points. How many truly great matches did Triple H have in his career?
 
The first thing that comes to most people's mind is the match vs. Undertaker. He's a guy that's held 13 world titles. He should have a massive list of 5-star matches on his resume. But he really doesn't.
 
 


Ok skip the rest of that old discussion, I just had a nostalgic pop for the 4 out of 10 quote. That was such a great memory back 5 years ago.

If absolutely nothing else Bret Hart gave us 4 out of 10. Haha

As for what Adders is going on about, I gotta admit it is rather weird seeing him blame WWE when it's always been Martha, Martha, Martha! (Sorry, Brady Bunch reference) Maybe that means Martha has changed her mind??? If so that'd be good news.

I think Bret is kidding himself yes he was a good wrestler back in the day but other then his matches with Shawn Michaels I didn't think he had anything over the top worthy of mentioning except his submission match with NFL.

The wrestlers of today are a different breed of wrestler now and if you want excellence look at AJ Styles and Seth Rollins look at Brawn Strownman who is by far the best big man wrestlers since the Undertaker was in his prime.

As for Owen look no disrespect to Owen he had some good matches and good stuff but ifs not the end of the world if he's not in straight away.
