WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart is one of the most legendary pro wrestlers in the history of the business. He is also a controversial wrestler and very opinionated, which hasn’t always worked out well for him. It seems he made a bold claim recently.

Despite all his controversy, Bret Hart’s influence on the pro wrestling industry is continued to be felt throughout the pro wrestling world. During the mid-90s he was at the height of his popularity as well.

While speaking with ‘q in cbc‘, Bret Hart talked about his legacy in the pro wrestling industry. Hart called himself a once-in-a-lifetime wrestler and claimed that him beating Andre The Giant would have been believable.

“I was a very special one-of-a-kind wrestler that changed the direction of wrestling and made wrestling about wrestling, not about how big my arms were or how tall I was, or what kind of physique I had. I was a wrestler’s wrestler, the fans loved me for being the wrestler that I was, that could go against anybody.


Bret Hart could wrestle Andre the Giant and maybe beat him and it would be believable. And there’s something about the way I developed as a wrestler.”

Bret Hart is certainly confident about his in-ring abilities and contributions to the pro wrestling world, but sometimes fans feel his claims become a bit too ridiculous. Perhaps this claim is one of them as well.
