• “Bret Hart was not a main event draw in WWF” – WCW Veteran
On his 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff talked about Bret Hart run as the WWF Champion, his behaviour & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Bret Hart being “miserable”:
“He wanted to kill Vince McMahon when I started working with him. He hated Shawn Michaels, he hated Ric Flair, he hated a lot of people [in WWF]. He was miserable.
Vince McMahon was the antichrist, until he got to go into the Hall of Fame. Then it’s time to kiss and make up, then Eric [Bischoff] is the antichrist, [Hulk] Hogan is the antichrist.”
On Bret Hart’s run as the WWF Champion:
“To this day, I do respect Bret, many aspects of Bret Hart as a performer. Bret Hart in my opinion is one of the best technical performers in his generation, not the biggest star.
His drawing power in WWF is well documented by anybody who wants to do the research in any objective way. He was not a main event draw in WWF.
That’s it, that’s a fact. It’s not my fault, I wasn’t there, I didn’t book him, it just didn’t work. He was the champion, he was the face of the company, and he was the least successful World Heavyweight Champion, or at least one of them, in WWF history which is a long freakin’ history.
Bret Hart is that guy that has to have something to hate in order to have something to talk about. If he has to do an interview, he has to find somebody to pick on, somebody to hate, somebody to blame.”
