Recap Of Bret Hart On FOX News

Tim Brown

Bret Hart joined FOX News live tonight speaking about the Benoit tragedy. He says he has known Chris Benoit since he was 11 or 12 years old and that he was a remarkable little kid who was obsessed with wrestling. Just a few years later Benoit learned how to wrestle at around 16 or 17, and his whole life was about wrestling. He says that Benoit was one of the best in the business, and that everyone backstage loved him.

Hart says that he Benoit had a lot of respect for everyone, and he was a leader in the locker room who carried the ball for the roster and implemented respect in the young wrestlers. Hart says that Benoit has 2 other children, and he has spoken to the oldest of the two who is very confused by the whole thing but is staying strong.

Bret says that Benoit has likely used steroids throughout his career, but that he thinks when Eddie Guerrero died, WWEâ<80><99>s new drug policy was strong enough to prevent drug abuse in the company. He doesnâ<80><99>t think that steroids played a role in the murders.

He closes off the interview saying that he never knew anything was wrong with Danielâ<80><99>s health at all, and was shocked to hear the reports about whatever disease it was that he apparently had. He says he never heard Chris ever say anything was wrong with his son.
