Bret Hart has never been shy to let his opinions be heard and he had some interesting things to say regarding the WWE Hall of Fame.
Of course, that is news to us!
In an interview with House Money Studios, Bret Hart, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 cited that he was “embarrassed that there’s so many great wrestlers out there that have never been given their credit”. He cited specifically Rick Rude, Demolition, The Rougeau Brothers and most specifically his younger brother, Owen Hart, who died in the ring in 1999.
Bret is actually lobbying for the entire Hart Foundation to get inducted and is urging his fans to sign at HartFoundationforHalloffFame.com, though we know that with Owen’s widow, Martha, being fervently against the WWE, it is difficult to see that happening.
While Bret was vocal about who he would like to see inducted with him, he was equally outspoken as to whom he is not fond of being WWE Hall of Fame inductees, namely, the Fabulous Freebirds, who were inducted last year:
“Why have they been overlooked when you can induct the Freebirds, who never did squat in WWE? Ever. Never drew any money, never did anything. When I remember the Freebirds, they were all drunk and passed out at the gate at one of the airports in my first day in WWF. None of them even made the show that day, they were too drunk to make their plane.”
Hart isn’t wrong in that the Freebirds were barely in the WWE, however the WWE Hall of Fame has inducted many wrestlers who have not competed there.
We await the next from Bret Hart regarding the WWE Hall of Fame.
We are sure he will have a lot more to say about in the future!
