TJRWrestling Radio Show Interview

Interview0 Comments

Hart sits down with TJRWrestling Radio Show to discuss his WWE career and opinions on multiple subjects in the current WWE product.

I would have loved to have worked with Kurt Angle. He would have been a lot of fun to be in the ring with. I would love to wrestle John Cena, especially the Bret Hart of 1997 that was a heel against John Cena the All American good guy. For the third guy I would have to say CM Punk. Punk would have been a perfect guy for me to work with. He might have to carry me through the match with him as the heel. I miss him on the shows. I hope he makes some kind of comeback one day.

Hart talks to The Boston Herald about Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and CM Punk.

They ended up throwing me and Steve together and it was kind of an ice-cold story line. That was a big disappointment, at first, for Steve and me.

Hart is a guest on Talk is Jericho to discuss his family, Stampede Wrestling and retirement.

I still try to get out especially for me…. I spent so much of my life travelling that I don’t like to be on the road too much. But being basically retired means I got a lot of free time.

Hart talks to Metro.co.uk about The Montreal Screwjob and his greatest rival.

I’ve calmed down a lot. There were a lot of things I did to escalate that whole thing with [opponent] Shawn Michaels and [now WWE owner] Vince McMahon. I wouldn’t change anything I did in terms of my own conduct but I regret all of it. I wish I had never left the WWE but I’ve moved on. I went back and shook Shawn’s hand and it was good for everyone to bury the hatchet.

I have nothing but respect for all of them (the wrestlers in WWE) they’re a great group of kids. They’re smaller and they’re better athletes and its kind of amazing.

Hart speaks to WWE.com about Curtis Axel and how the young wrestler is similar to Mr. Perfect.

I do see Mr. Perfect when I see Curtis Axel. When I watch how he moves, his athletic ability is just like his dad’s and I don’t doubt that he can not only fill his shoes, but make them a little bigger.

Yeah I would probably have to say the hour match with Shawn Michaels in Anaheim.
