Bret Hart has a lot to say about his pro wrestling career, but he doesn’t seem to talk about the good parts very often. The Hitman recently made headlines when he dragged Goldberg for costing him $15 million. Eric Bischoff is well aware of Bret Hart’s grievances.
During 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff discussed Bret Hart at length. He said that if The Hitman doesn’t have anyone to bury then he doesn’t have much to talk about.
This continued until Easy E said that Bret Hart is a “whiney bitch” and “just a negative, miserable guy.”
“This is typical of Bret Hart then and now. If Bret doesn’t have somebody to bury, criticize or blame, he can’t really have much of a conversation. He doesn’t have much to say. It didn’t resonate with me, I think partially because WWE, Vince McMahon, federal court, indicted, drug distribution, goes back a long time. That is not the WWE of today, but we are going back to 1993. Let’s talk about drug abuse in WWE back in 1993. Let’s talk about the steroid abuse and the allegations and indictments. I think Bret was probably trying to clear the smoke in his own room by creating it in somebody else’s as much as anything.”
“To add to that, that is Bret. I’ll actually use his words in this context. I don’t mean to say anything bad about anybody, but Bret has a tendency to be a winy bitch. I told you a few months ago, I said I was going to take the high road. But he continues to rehash this negative nonsense and bury people. It doesn’t make me angry. That’s Bret. Whether he is burying Ric Flair or whether he is burying Mick Foley or Vince McMahon or Eric Bischoff or Bill Goldberg, he is just a negative, miserable guy. That’s how he goes through his daily life. He was doing that in 1993 and he is still doing it today.”
Eric Bischoff and Bret Hart both moved on after dealing with each other in WCW, but they obviously have not forgotten about the kind of relationship they had.
Bret Hart’s “Confessions Of A Hitman” series gives him a chance to share some unfiltered stories, even some he has never been able to tell. It’s likely that Eric Bischoff isn’t a subscriber to that web series.
