Bret Hart Says There Are Lots Of Things He'd Love To Do With AEW But For Now Is Happy At Home

Bret Hart is happily retired.

During a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online, Hart spoke about the references and homages to him on AEW programming by the likes of FTR and CM Punk, saying that there is not a lot he can do in wrestling. It has been suggested that he could perhaps serve as a manager, but Hart says he'd prefer to be remembered as a wrestler.

"Well, I'm happily retired. I'm a home guy now. There's not a lot I can do in wrestling. People say, 'What would you do in AEW?' What would I do? Referee? Manage? Be a Chairman? I don't want to be remembered that way. I want to be remembered as a wrestler," he said.

Continuing on, Hart shared that he knows and talks with a lot of the members of the AEW roster and is always open to offering them advice, but if they want it, they'll have to call him on the phone.

"I'd be happy to help a lot of them, and I know a lot of them. I talk to a lot of them, sometimes by text or on the phone and people call me up. I always got advice and I can always pinpoint little things that can make a difference in a guy's match or something that he's doing. But I'm a guy that likes being home, so they're going to have to call me on the phone. I wish I could go do stuff more easily, but I'm getting a little older now and it's getting harder for me to keep flying around and doing stuff, so I got to pick my days that I can do stuff. There's a lot of things I would love to be part of with AEW and what they're doing. I know they got some great wrestlers there and I have a lot of respect for the organization and all that, but right now I'm happy at home," Bret said.

Bret appeared at AEW Double or Nothing 2019 where he unveiled the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. AEW is currently entering the quarterfinal round of their Owen Hart Foundation Tournaments. The Men's and Women's finals are set to take place on May 29 at Double or Nothing.
