In 2016, WWF Legend Bret Hart gave various interviews, in which he accused WWE star Seth Rollins of being an unsafe worker, after Sting, John Cena & Finn Balor got injured during matches with Rollins.

During a recent Daily Mail interview, Seth Rollins admitted that Bret’s comments about him back then really hurt his feelings.

Here’s what Seth had to say:

“I love Bret Hart, I’ll preface this. Bret didn’t really critique me, he called me ‘unsafe’. Bret’s going to spit the truth, he’ll tell you from what he saw he thought I was an unsafe worker, and I would say anybody I’ve ever been in the ring with would tell you the exact opposite, including the guys who have got injured during matches with me, that’s a fact I think.

To finish it up nicely, I did approach Bret at a Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Bret was backstage and we ended up in the catering line together and I said ‘Hey man’ and he said ‘Hey’ and I just said ‘I wanted to tell you as somebody who looked up to you lot and still does, it really kind of hurt my feelings.’

I felt bad and I don’t say that often. Bret was a hero of mine when I was growing up and so to have someone like that criticise you and your work and your work ethic and your empathy towards other people, that really is painful.

So, I expressed that to him and I don’t think he knew that I had that feeling towards him, I don’t think he knew I cared about him that way and it hit him in a spot and he apologized and we have been friends since then and we’ve had good conversations.

I’m happy we did do that as Bret is still someone I look up to to this day.”

Seth Rollins came to NXT in June 2012 and made it to the WWE main roster by November, when he debuted as a member of The Shield, alongside fellow NXT Wrestlers (at that time) Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose.
