Bret Hart isn’t a fan of WWE’s oft-embattled creative process. In the second installment of our exclusive interview with the WWE Hall of Famer filmed earlier this Summer, Hart didn’t mince words when talking about his qualms with long, scripted promos which he feels handcuffs wrestlers. Hart channeled Cody Rhodes’ parting shot on Twitter from earlier this year to discuss WWE’s shortcomings in getting the most out of otherwise talented athletes.
Hart continued his criticism of one particularly talented athlete in Seth Rollins , as the Hitman doubled down on his comments of Rollins being reckless in the ring following mishaps with John Cena and Sting. Wrestler safety is a very important topic to Hart as he prides himself on never injuring a single wrestler throughout an illustrious career that spans over two decades. Ironically, Hart’s own career was ended by an errant kick to the head by Bill Goldberg, who Hart also felt was dangerous in the ring.
Hart’s retirement forced him to adjust to a post-wrestling existence, which includes the launch of Sharpshooter Funding, a finance company which assists Canadian small business in gaining access to funds. Hart is the official company spokesman, working alongside his sons Dallas and Blade and managing partner Paul Pitcher, founder of First Down Funding.
“Our products and solutions are in the birth stages here in Canada, and I am excited to help all Canadian business owners in all Provinces across Canada seven days a week. Unless the puck is dropping here in Calgary, I am always available for Canadian business owners,” said Dallas, who serves as Sharpshooter Funding’s Vice President of Sales.
But even as he ventures into the world of finance, Hart is never too busy to discuss his first love of professional wrestling and the current state of the business. In another controversial interview that is sure to ruffle some feathers, Bret Hart lets loose on a wide array of subjects.
