• Road Dogg Reacts To Backlash After Saying He’s Better Than Bret Hart
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Oh You Didn’t Know’ podcast, D-Generation X member The Road Dogg Jesse James (aka Brian Armstrong) had the following to say about Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart:
“I never saw what the big deal was with Bret Hart as a performer. I never understood it.
He was a great worker, and I thought about saying good, but he was a great worker. He worked better than me, 10-fold. Worked circles around me. Don’t ever think that I’ve told anybody I was a good wrestler, because I haven’t, and if you’ve listened to my podcast, you know that’s true.
I don’t think I was a good wrestler. I don’t think Bret was a great wrestler. I think I was a better sports entertainer than Bret was and I think that’s where the money is.”
After getting a sh*tstorm online from a lot of Old School Wrestling fans, Road Dogg clarified what he said during a special edition of his podcast.
Here’s what he said:
“That is fair to say and I feel that way today, even though everybody has been really angry at me on Twitter. It’s just my opinion.
Hyperbole is the verbiage of the day and everything is the best or the worst, and today, I’m on the worst and so I’m sorry. I’m sorry I shared an opinion on a platform I was given in order to share my opinion.
If you ask me to go out there and entertain a crowd, I would have different ways to do that other than grappling and wrestling.
I stand by that, right now.”
