Former WWE Tag Team Champion Al Snow recently shared his opinion on the perennial debate surrounding Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels’ wrestling abilities.
Speaking in an interview with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Snow carefully analysed the question before offering his insightful perspective. According to Snow, both Hart and Michaels were equally skilled in the ring, but they showcased different wrestling styles.
Snow commended Hart for his no-nonsense approach, highlighting his ability to convincingly portray a determined mindset solely focused on winning the match. On the other hand, Snow emphasised Michaels’ flair and spectacular moves, noting that he excelled at creating an atmosphere of suspense and danger, making it seem as if he was on the brink of defeat.
When pressed to declare a clear winner between the two, Snow stated:
Who was the better worker Bret or Shawn? I’d have to say they’re both pretty even in that regard. Just different approaches. Bret was more no-nonsense, just very ‘I’m here to win,’ and Shawn was more flourish and more ‘I’m gonna win, but I’m gonna do it spectacularly.’ Shawn was better at looking like he was in jeopardy of losing. And Bret was better at selling the intent that he was attempting to win.
Ultimately, the legacy of Hart and Michaels lies in their contributions to the wrestling industry. Their distinct styles and personal animosity brought an extra layer of authenticity to their matches, captivating fans worldwide.
