Eric Bischoff Calls Bret Hart A Miserable Guy, Says Bret Hated Everybody During His Time In WCW

During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff responded to Bret Hart’s recent negative comments about him. Below is what Bischoff said:

“I didn’t listen to your show with Bret. I’m generally aware of the kind of things that Bret says because he’s been saying them for years, so it’s nothing new there. I’m sure he didn’t break any news. He’s just a miserable guy. He’s the type of guy – and I said it in one of my responses on Twitter; he has a giant hole in his soul, and he’s going to have to fill it with hate for somebody.

When he came to work for me he hated Vince McMahon. He hated everybody in the McMahon family; he hated Shawn Michaels; he didn’t want to work with Hulk Hogan. He hated Ric Flair, he hated Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, he hated everybody, and I had to listen to that. It was a major effort to get him and Flair on the same page; which wasn’t because of Ric, it was because of Bret; he just hated everybody.

If you just watched him or listened to him over the years, he was able to get into the WWE Hall of Fame so he buried the hatchet with Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels, of course he did, but you know, Bret showed up in WCW, it makes me laugh when he says he didn’t like how he was treated because we paid him a lot of money and treated him extremely well.

Here was a guy that would show up 45 minutes before television started, before a live TV show and he would show up looking like he would sleep in the gutter the last three days; and he had no energy, no real desire to integrate himself and insert himself in the process. He wasn’t at all passionate about anything he did from day one.”

October 19th Will Now Be “The Rock Day” In Vancouver

Gregor Robertson, who’s the Mayor of Vancouver, has announced that October 19th will now be celebrated as “The Rock Day” in Vancouver. Below is what The Rock posted on Instagram about this honor:

“It’s official: The Rock Day.

Such a cool (and bad a$$) honor to have the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, present this proclamation to me last night on set.

I’m a grateful man to be in the business of making big movies and entertainment that serve multiple purposes around the world.

One of those critical purposes is providing jobs for thousands of hard working people, local businesses and economies every time we bring a production to town.

Jobs and opportunities for people. And free waffles for me.

Thank you Mayor and your staff for being so gracious and welcoming to myself and our entire production crew to your city.

And thank you for this honor and thanks for being such a cool guy. Vancouver will always hold a special place in my DNA. Next time drinks on me.. #ItsOfficial #TheRockProc #October19th #Vancouver #TheRockDay”
