WWE Hall Of Famer Discusses Speaking The Truth

WWE Hall Of Famer Discusses Speaking The Truth WWE

A WWE Hall of Famer has discussed speaking the truth.

Bret Hart is widely regarded as one of the greatest technical wrestlers to ever step foot in a wrestling ring.

The former five-time WWE Champion has become more known over the past few years for his ability to speak the truth.

Whether telling his side of the story on some of wrestling’s biggest controversies or taking a shot at former rival Goldberg, “The Hitman” believes he is always speaking his truth.

Speaking with Sunday Night’s Main Event, Hart stated that he isn’t bitter about anything from his wrestling career and is simply speaking his mind. Bret said:

“I’ve been happy a lot of times. I had a great career, I think back to some of my happiest memories, some of my hardest memories with Jim Neidhart when we were slugging it out.”

“I’m blessed with so many Jim Neidhart stories, more than anyone else ever. Even my sister Ellie [Jim’s wife] doesn’t have as many Jim Neidhart stories. I have a lot of great memories, I’ve had a great career.” 

Hart continued on to discuss why he is so direct and outspoken, saying:

“I’ve always been, contrary to what people may think, I’ve always been a pretty satisfied and content person. I speak the truth, sometimes I rile people up by being a little direct and outspoken, but in the end, I tell the truth.”

“If you don’t like the truth, you probably don’t like what I’m saying sometimes. I never lie, I never exaggerate, I just tell the truth.”

“Sometimes it’s not necessary to be so honest, but sometimes it’s important to put things into the proper perspective. Wrestling is a very ill defined business that people don’t understand and people form opinions and people don’t always have all the information.”

“Sometimes, you have to speak up for yourself. WWE, for example, is a big machine that promotes their side of things and when the screw job happened, I was suddenly just a wrestler out of business having to tell his side of the story.”

“If you look back on it, I told my side of the story. I’ve always been a guy…my story has never changed. That’s the thing about me, I tell the truth. Sometimes, the truth hurts, and that’s unfortunate.”
