Bret Hart Says The Kliq Were Literally a Cancer Back in the Day

Bret Hart as the WWF Champion.

During a recent interview with Live Audio Wrestling, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart noted that The Kliq were “literally” cancer in the locker room back in the day.

Below is what Bret Hart said:

“They were literally a cancer in the dressing room, all of them. I don’t doubt that Shawn Michaels is sorry for a lot of that kind of behavior. Kevin Nash was a great wrestler and a good guy, but I don’t think he could be that proud of that association. It was a cancerous environment in the dressing room with those guys and they certainly did more negative than positive to the business. Scott Hall, all you have to do is just look at him. He’s a train-wreck with his own life and he was a malcontent, or a guy that when you were close to him long enough you start to feel the same way he did; you just felt so self-destructive and unhappy with your life and your job and everything. He was a guy that was infectious with his bad, bad sort of moods and unhappiness in his own life that would spread to all the other wrestlers.

And you know, I’m glad I’m not remembered for that kind of stuff. I’m remembered – I think if you talk to different wrestlers from that era, the Savio Vegas and those kinds of wrestlers that were on my cards – they’re all pretty proud of how I conducted myself, how I related to them and how I may have been the top guy but I didn’t act like a superstar; not to my friends and not to my peers.”

Bret also talked about Owen Hart’s new WWE DVD and said “Owen would be turning in his grave if he knew Martha was trying to erase his career.” Click here to read more.
