• HOFer Agrees With Bret Hart’s Comments About AEW
During a recent interview with HN Live, 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart called today’s wrestling “pathetic” and criticized what AEW does.
Below is what The Hitman said:
“AEW has kind of gone in a bad direction, I think, with all the violence and gore. I watched some episodes. You know, I watched Marta Hart do her big press conference for AEW here in Calgary.
I’m watching AEW, and I’m watching, who used to be Dean Ambrose, sticking a fork in somebody’s head for like 5 minutes with a close up on TV. This isn’t wrestling either. I would recommend turning all that off. I don’t watch that stuff anymore.
It’s not very good. Wrestling is going in some bad directions because people don’t know what wrestling is or wrestling was.”
Fellow Hall of Famer Teddy Long agrees with Bret and said the following on The Wrestling Time Machine podcast:
“The only good thing that caught my attention was The Bloodline. I really enjoyed watching that, and I’m still enjoying it.
But like I said, with AEW, I don’t watch any of it, and I don’t plan to watch it. And I agree with Bret, there’s no selling no more. You hit somebody, somebody would jump right up like it never happened. Nobody wants to be real anymore.”
