Bret Hart Speaks On WWE Return, Steve Austin, Big Show, More

Tim Brown

Bret Hart recently sat down with the UKâ<80><99>s Sun and talked about his appearance on WWE RAWâ<80><99>s Vince McMahon Appreciation night a while back, saying “I guess I wanted to show that I could bury the hatchet, that I could have some fun with it. I think at the time I was trying to get permission from the WWE for some pictures to use in my book. I thought that if I didnâ<80><99>t do it or if I donâ<80><99>t show that Iâ<80><99>m not going to co-operate I might not get them. I thought I could have some fun with it and not take it too seriously [â<80>¦] I was in a good place, Iâ<80><99>ve got my life here in Hawaii.”

On the possibility of returning to WWE TV again for some sort of special episode of RAW: “I always tell them they can always ask. Thereâ<80><99>s no harm in asking. If I thought I could have fun with it, my whole attitude is â<80>~can I have fun with itâ<80><99>, you know?”

Hart comments on people he wishes he could have wrestled, saying “I really like Kurt Angle. Heâ<80><99>s the kind of guy I really wish I could have worked with. I would have loved to have worked with Rey Mysterio, would have loved to work with Big Show.”

The Hitman also said that the WrestleMania 13 climax of his legendary feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin was a defining moment in both menâ<80><99>s careers. “We were both great storytellers, telling the story so well. You can look at the emotion, the physical reality of that match. I always compare wrestling to figure skating, you pick each other up, throw each other around. Steve Austin and I just worked really well together, really complimented one another.”
