BRUCE HART DISCUSSES HOW HIS BROTHER BRET BECAME A “MARK FOR HIMSELF,” FORGOT WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR BUSINESS, DID THE WRONG THING IN MONTREAL, AND MORE By WorldWrestlingInsanity.com
Less than an hour after posting free clips from Nunzio’s 60 minute shoot on WorldWrestlingInsanity.com, the new uncut ClubWWI.com shoot interview has gone up…and it’s a doozy. Get ready for 72 minutes with the most controversial Hart of them all – Bruce Hart.
Anyone familiar with Bruce Hart knows that nothing he says is between the lines. From a long line of shooters, Bruce knows how to speak his mind no matter who the topic is about. You’ll be shocked at his unfiltered opinions and intrigued by his thoughts on the entire wrestling industry. Among the numerous topics talked about in his ClubWWI.com shoot are: Sibling Rivalry with Bret Hart, Chris Benoit’s Mental Problems Long Before His Death, “Juice Freaks,” The Original Plan For Survivor Series 1993 and Why It Fell Apart, The Note Terry Funk Left When He Walked Out The Night Before, Why It Took Brian Pillman Two Days To Get Home After The Calgary Stampede PPV, What Pillman Said When He Called Him After The Stone Cold Gun Angle, Being Subpoenaed To The Great Khali’s Trial, Misconceptions About His Father, Dynamite Kid, Davey Boy Smith, “The Lex Luger Syndrome,” and Much More.
Bruce made headlines last year when he spoke about Chris Benoit’s mental state. Many were surprised by how honest he was about Chris, someone he trained. However, that’s nothing compared to his thoughts on brother Bret. Citing quotes from his book, “Shoot First…Ask Questions Later,” James Guttman mentions how Bret sometimes had a tough time separating from his character. In fact, he may have been too protective of his spot in the eyes of some who worked with him. Bruce responded:
“I’m not trying to criticize. It’s obvious he has his good side, you know. He’s a great worker. Had a lot of respect for the business and what else, you know. I remember when I was first breaking in the business, one of the first things I was ever told was ‘don’t become a mark for yourself.’ That’s kind of one of the cardinal rules. And that’s pretty much what he did. It’s even more disconcerting that he grew up in the business and should have had a handle on it, you know? You’re almost amazed that he seems to forget it was a work. Even the Montreal thing, you know. It was certainly not handled well by Vince (McMahon). Not very well orchestrated, but at the same time, it goes without saying that when the office tells you they want you to drop the strap, it’s part of business. It’s like Mr. T in Rocky 3 saying ‘I can’t do the job, Sylvester. On second thought, I’m too over to drop the strap.'”
James agrees and says that it’s unfortunate that someone who did as much as Bret Hart did in his career sometimes seems like he has a hard time enjoying it. Bruce speaks at length about his family including his father and misconceptions about how he ran his family. Plus, details on the new book he’s working on.
