• Bret Hart Explains Why He Doesn’t Want To Be A Manager In WWE
During a recent Q&A session on Instagram, WWF Legend Bret Hart was asked if he would consider returning to WWE to be involved in an actual storyline on TV.
Here’s what The Hitman replied:
“I mean if there was something where it’s like I could wrestle Donald Trump at WrestleMania and Vince McMahon was gonna referee it or something, I’d hear it out because it’d be funny to hear it, but the thought of me going in there and wrestling somebody is pretty unlikely and as far as managers and all that kind of stuff, I don’t.
Bret Hart was a wrestler, not a manager and I don’t wanna be remembered as a manager and so I would never do it. I was a great wrestler.”
Speaking of Bret, he recently took a shot at 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan.
During an interview with ‘q on CBC’, The Hitman ripped the Hulkster’s wrestling style and said the following:
“When you look back today, they don’t wrestle like Hulk Hogan anymore. They wrestle like Bret Hart. Wrestling’s all about action and speed and telling the story.”
Hogan gets criticized for his wrestling style and some fans (especially younger fans) think he can’t wrestle. However, during his time in New Japan Pro Wrestling, Hogan proved without a shadow of a doubt that he can wrestle. His style in NJPW was completely different from his WWF style.
Hogan was smart enough to know what he needed to do to draw in the World Wrestling Federation and become a household name, and take the wrestling business to new heights, something he doesn’t get enough credit for in this day and age.
Bret’s dislike for Hogan stems from the fact that Hogan refused to drop the WWF Championship to him in 1993. Instead of losing to Hart on his way out of the company, Hogan lost the WWF Title to Yokozuna.
