Bret Hart’s WCW run wasn’t great, to say the least. The Hitman arrived in WCW fresh out of the Montreal Screwjob but his momentum died a slow death in Ted Turner’s company.
Hart was a special guest on this week’s episode of WWE Backstage. On the show, Hart made a confession about his WCW run, and honestly, it was a long time coming.
Hart said that Vince McMahon once told him that WCW wouldn’t know what to do with a Bret Hart.
The funny thing about it was, I remember Vince saying that to me, he goes, “WCW would never know what to do with a Bret Hart”.
And you know it’s like, 3-4 months there, I realized how incredibly true that was. They didn’t really didn’t know what to do with me, they had no appreciation for my skills or my abilities. I remember often going to Eric Bischoff and going, “How about throwing me in with this guy, how about putting me in with Booker T or how about I do this”.
And they would always come up with the most lame reason why I couldn’t wrestle [Booker T] because you were working with somebody else or something like that. I remember going “That’s not even a reason”. They didn’t really know what they were doing and I am not sure what the politics of all that was.
Booker T then said that WCW didn’t want anyone else to outshine the top-workers in their company. Booker then asked Bret if he would do it all over again if he had a chance.
What came next was an honest confession from The Hitman. He said that he would figure out a better way to stay in WWE and not jump ships to WCW.
If I could do it all over again, I think, I would try to figure out a better way to stay in WWE. I mean knowing what I know about WCW, I am sorry that I ever went there.
If Hart had stayed back in WWE, we could have gotten a string of dream matches between him and the Superstars that came after his WWE departure. However, Hart’s career, unfortunately, ended in WCW.
