WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart is without a doubt one of the best technical pro wrestlers the pro wrestling industry has ever seen. He is also a controversial wrestler whose views haven’t always been seen in the best of ways. It seems Jim Ross commented on one of his most iconic matches as well.
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 on his Grilling JR podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross stated that Bret Hart and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin went into business for themselves during their iconic WrestleMania 13 match in 1997 as stars were banned from deliberately drawing blood at the time, but they did it anyway.
“They [WWE] didn’t want any [blood], so they broke the rules. They went into business for themselves. My question to you: what are you gonna do about it? I was well aware that they were going to bleed, and I am in charge of the department. Those are grounds for me to get fired.”
Bret Hart even previously stated that the match is better than any UFC fight. Bret Hart’s contributions to the pro wrestling industry can never be understated and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
