Bret Hart’s relationship with Vince McMahon ended on a sour note after the Montreal Screwjob, and The Hitman took his talents to WCW. Unfortunately, his pro wrestling career ended altogether only two years after his departure from WWE.
Bret Hart spoke to The Ringer on the 25th anniversary of the infamous screwjob. The Hitman said he was glad he was able to make peace with bitter rival Shawn Michaels, but regretted his decision to join WCW and lose his career to Goldberg.
“I wished I’d never left for WCW because I probably wouldn’t have had a stroke and I probably wouldn’t have had to wrestle Bill Goldberg.”
It appears that Bret Hart won’t ever let go of his bitter feelings towards Goldberg, who inadvertently cost him his career with a stiff kick during their match at Starrcade in 1999. Goldberg says he’s done apologizing for the injury.
