"I've been happy a lot of times. I had a great career, I think back to some of my happiest memories, some of my hardest memories with Jim Neidhart when we were slugging it out. I'm blessed with so many Jim Neidhart stories, more than anyone else ever. Even my sister Ellie [Jim's wife] doesn't have as many Jim Neidhart stories. I have a lot of great memories, I've had a great career," Bret told Sunday Night's Main Event.

He continued, "I've always been, contrary to what people may think, I've always been a pretty satisfied and content person. I speak the truth, sometimes I rile people up by being a little direct and outspoken, but in the end, I tell the truth. If you don't like the truth, you probably don't like what I'm saying sometimes. I never lie, I never exaggerate, I just tell the truth. Sometimes it's not necessary to be so honest, but sometimes it's important to put things into the proper perspective. Wrestling is a very ill defined business that people don't understand and people form opinions and people don't always have all the information. Sometimes, you have to speak up for yourself. WWE, for example, is a big machine that promotes their side of things and when the screw job happened, I was suddenly just a wrestler out of business having to tell his side of the story. If you look back on it, I told my side of the story. I've always been a guy...my story has never changed. That's the thing about me, I tell the truth. Sometimes, the truth hurts, and that's unfortunate."

That settles that.

Bret recently opened a bar in Calgary and is set to star in "STALKER."
