• Indy Wrestler Says Vince McMahon Created Bret Hart, Wishes Bret Dropped His Anger At WWE Sooner
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Indy Wrestler Teddy Hart talked about Bret Hart being angry at WWE for a long time and how Bret could’ve worked with WWE longer.
Below is what Teddy said:
“It was Bret that kind of made things difficult. And sure the screwjob happened but that could have ended in two years and he could have come back and did all this cool stuff. Even if we had the stroke or the concussion, he still could have come back.
If Tyson Kidd could come back with a broken neck and not be mad, I hate to say it but Owen’s death happened because of actions that were taken by other people that set Owen up to that position. It wasn’t anybody’s fault, it just happened. If you’re going to continue your life, let it go and go back to the company who made you. Vince created Bret Hart.
I just think it was hard to see Bret with so much potential to be a great agent or a great booker. And I think he loved the business enough from what I remember seeing that he would have liked to have been on the road like Fit Finlay or Dean Malenko or how Vince is always there.
I think Bret would have been a nice touch to have him back there and have him and Shawn and Triple H all on the same page. I just wish that everyone would have gotten along a little earlier.”
