During an interview with The Ringer, 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was asked who was better between him and Bret Hart.

Below is what HBK said:

“It’s the age-old question: ‘Who’s better? Shawn or Bret?’ At some point it dawned on me ‘Oh my goodness, yeah, Bret was easily a better wrestler than I am. But I think I was a better performer.’

When we came into the age of the sports entertainer, I think that was my space, that was my area. It had to do with more than just the technical wrestling of a match. It had a lot to do with emotion and story. And also, look, the charisma, the entrance, all of it sort of combined.

At the end of the day, there’s no defining the best and the greatest and all that kind of stuff in this line of work. Every bit of it is personal preference. And I try to remind everybody like ‘Hey, just the fact that I’m even in the conversation is fricking fantastic with me’.”

Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels was one of the greatest rivalries of the 90s. They had their first ever singles match against each other in 1990 on WWF Wrestling Challenge and their last one at Survivor Series 1997.

They faced each other in singles matches a total of 8 times, with The Hitman winning 5 times and HBK winning 2 times (one draw).

Bret & Shawn main evented WrestleMania 12 in a 60-minute Iron Man Match, where HBK won the WWF World Heavyweight Championship for the first time ever.
