A WWE Hall of Famer has recalled being called out by Bret Hart for admitting they liked a certain heartbreaker in the ring more than The Hitman.
Bret Hart did not have the moniker of The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and The Best There Ever Will Be with an illustrious career that has many fans naming him as the greatest of all time.
However, WWE Hall of Famer and former DX member Road Dogg isn’t one of them. Speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg recalled an encounter with Bret Hart where The Hitman seemingly called him out after reading that the New Age Outlaw had claimed Shawn Michaels – Hart’s bitter rival – was better than him:
“I just remember, we were both sitting in first class, I got up and put my bag up and I saw him and said, ‘Hey Bret how are you?’ He said, ‘Good man how are you?’ We just chit chat and before I turn to sit down he said, ‘Hey man, I heard you said Shawn Michaels was better than me.’ And I said, ‘Wait, what?’ and he said, ‘Yeah, I read that you said Shawn Michaels was better than me.’ And I said, ‘I do think Shawn Michaels is better than you. I’m sorry that I feel that way but I love southern-style wrestling.'”
Bret was great at wrestling, but I just didn’t think he was entertaining.”
“I literally went back to my seat and sat down and thought, ‘This is the weirdest thing I’ve ever been a part of.’ I guess he read it on the dirt sheet or somewhere else. It was really a strange moment. He may not remember it, I may be telling it wrong but I remember him saying, ‘You said Shawn Michaels is better than me.’ I don’t know what to say to that.”
Bret Hart recently commented that he’d go back to competing in the wrestling ring now if it wasn’t for the health issues that he has suffered over the years.
