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 controversial wrestler whose views haven’t always been seen in the best of ways. 

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.

Fans are more than aware of the pure disdain Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels had for each other. It further increased after the Montreal Screwjob. It took them a very long time to mend fences.

While speaking on “The MMA Hour” with Ariel Helwani, WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels opened up about his relationship with Bret Hart and made it clear things are good now.


“When everything is said and done, that was hard on both of us. It’s like an out-of-body experience. I have nothing in common with the person that I was then. … Bret and I always talk about it – there was a friendship there before. There really was. And to have damaged that … and to have wanted to mend it for so many years, … we could never get it done.

I always appreciate it, … he always looks at me and goes ‘We’re good. We’re good, Shawn.’ And that means a lot, because I know it’s genuine. Bret doesn’t say stuff just to say it.

You don’t want to go the rest of your life not having that healed. While Hart can often be known to harbor a grudge, it’s good to see that the past enemies have managed to bury the hatchet.

It is certainly a shame both of them never reconciled until it was too late for them to wrestle each other. Regardless, what’s done is done and nothing can be done about that.
