In a recent interview with Fox News Australia, 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart talked how he made wrestling look real with his in-ring skills.

Here’s what The Hitman said:

“I seem to be as revered or popular as I’ve ever been – and it’s maybe because of the salutes I’ve been getting from guys like Punk, and FTR, different wrestlers have mentioned my name, or do something that I did in the ring as a nod or a salute to me, and I appreciate all that.

I think CM Punk alone has done a lot to remind wrestling fans to take a look back at some of the stuff that I was doing, and how good it was.

And I think it’s starting to stand out now where it’s like, in my honest opinion, without trying to sound too boastful, they’ve pulled the curtain back on wrestling so much. So now we know the whole thing’s a show, and they’re just really good physical actors, and that is what it is.

But you watch my wrestling and you go, jeez, he was the best. I think I made it look more real than anybody all the time. I made your stuff look good, I made my own stuff look good, nothing looked rehearsed.

There’s so much I think in today’s wrestling that’s so badly rehearsed, over and over.”

Bret then praised current Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley for making things look real:

“I really like her a lot. I really like her poise, her staying in character and sort of living her – she seems like she’s adapted a character that’s fun to play, and she’s playing into that, full tilt.

She’s putting that realism into it; that’s what I miss in a lot of wrestling today, just making it feel more real, and she makes it feel pretty real all the time.”
