• Bret Hart Regrets Going To WCW
2 Time WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart was a special guest on this week’s WWE Backstage. During the show, he discussed his WCW run, which he’s not so proud of.
Below is what he said:
“The funny thing about it was, I remember Vince saying that to me, he goes, ‘WCW would never know what to do with a Bret Hart’.
And you know it’s like, 3-4 months there, I realized how incredibly true that was. They didn’t really know what to do with me, they had no appreciation for my skills or my abilities. I remember often going to Eric Bischoff and going, ‘How about throwing me in with this guy, how about putting me in with Booker T or how about I do this’.
And they would always come up with the most lame reason why I couldn’t wrestle [Booker T] because you were working with somebody else or something like that. I remember going ‘That’s not even a reason’. They didn’t really know what they were doing and I am not sure what the politics of all that was.
If I could do it all over again, I think, I would try to figure out a better way to stay in WWF. I mean knowing what I know about WCW, I am sorry that I ever went there.”
