Bret Hart was a guest on this week’s edition of WWE backstage. Whilst The Hitman has talked of his time in WCW plenty, this is one of the clearest statements he’s made.
The discussion came whilst he was talking with Renee Young and Booker T, where he discusses that the likes of Steve Austin, Kevin Nash and his own brother Owen advised him against the move.
Hart still made the move and pitched plenty of ideas for his character to the WCW creative team which never came to fruition. His regret for the decision is extremely clear.
“If I could do it all over again I would find a better way to stay in WWE. I’m sorry I ever went there.
He also commented that he would have loved to have worked a program with fellow guest Booker T, yet they only got the opportunity a few times.
CM Punk also chatted with Hart on the show, where they discussed both men’s love for the cage match with Owen at SummerSlam 1994, as well as The Hitman’s rivalry with Steve Austin.
Hart also commented on The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever, saying it was great, realistic and intense – but was never going to live up to its billing, as it’s near enough impossible to pick a greatest contest.
Although these revelations are not new, it shows a consistent narrative from Hart and a clear sense of regret we have not seen before.
