Arda Ocal of Right After Wrestling on theScore was joined in studio by Bret “Hitman” Hart. Highlights: – Would he induct Shawn Michaels into the Hall of Fame? – Working with the Miz and knowing he “had it” – What he thinks of John Morrison giving away his shades to fans at ringside – With the 2011 Royal Rumble approaching, Bret talks about the ’94 Rumble finish with Lex Luger – “That finish was a real credit to Lex” – Would Bret Hart take an agent/producing job with the WWE? – Calling Natalya an “innovator”, particularly when asked about her “double sharpshooter” on Lay-Cool at the TLC Pay Per View – Being a spokesperson for the March of Dimes as a stroke survivor…. Bret also talks about who his best opponent was (a tie between Mr. Perfect and Dynamite Kid.. he even says “Dynamite might have truly been the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be”)…. EXERPT: “He came up to me, John Morrison did, and he apologized to me, he said he felt bad and made references to stealing my gimmick. But the fact that he even addressed it was flattering to me. I don’t think it’s any different than Rey Mysterio giving stuff to the kids. It’s gotta keep moving on, and if there’s any kind of connection between his giving the sunglasses away and my giving the sunglasses away years ago, between an old fan and a young fan, I think that’s beautiful, I have no problem with it at all.”..

Jimmy Korderas has a theory that a 40 man Rumble might lead to roster cuts, talking about the traditional “Battle Royal payday” at Mania coming early because of low stock prices and economic challenges for the WWE. Jimmy also talks about the yearly “wellness” letter he received in the mail on Monday, where the WWE reminds current and former talent that they can be sent to rehab should they need it, on WWE’s dime.

El Generico recently had a dark match at TNA. On Tuesday (Jan 11th), he wrestled against the Amazing Red and got a great reception from the fans. Reports are that the match went very well. On Wednesday (Jan 12th), he wrestled against T.J. Perkins (known in PWG as Puma). He was able to hit his top rope Brain-Buster for the win. I will leave the ridiculous speculation to others, but TNA would be lucky to have him on their regular roster.. [reported by Mike Aldren]
