“I think I was a better storyteller than any of the wrestlers they’ve got today." He said. "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 ‘phony’ 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." He continued, "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.”

Throughout Bret Hart's tenure in the WWE he stood across the ring from a number of respected and highly regarded wrestlers and future WWE Hall Of Famers. One individual who Bret stood alongside and across the ring from is former two-time WWF Intercontinental Champion; his brother the late Owen Hart. Bret stated that he is embarrassed for WWE that they've had so many great wrestlers including Owen who have yet to be inducted into the hall. He went on to share his thoughts on who he believes should be honored as one of the greats of WWE's history and further elaborated on his brother who Bret feels should have been honored a long time ago.

“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." Bret said. "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?”


Bret Hart also went over his thoughts on Eric Bischoff referring to Bischoff as an "complete idiot" and the "stupidest idiot that ever got into wrestling". To read the full interview, click here.
