WWE Hall Of Famer Tells Bret Hart To ‘Grow Up’

WWE Hall Of Famer Tells Bret Hart To ‘Grow Up’ WWE

Following their issues being brought up on “Who Killed WCW?”, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg tells Bret Hart to “grow up.”

At WCW Starrcade 1999, Goldberg kicked Bret Hart in the head, and the blow effectively ended Hart’s in-ring career due to a severe concussion.

Since then, Hart repeated taken shots at Goldberg for his perceived recklessness in the ring over the years due to the injury. These issues were brought up yet again during the new VICE TV series, “Who Killed WCW?”

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Goldberg brought up Bret Hart’s issues with him while discussing “Who Killed WCW?” series. He said:

“The Bret Hart thing, it just saddens me as a human being. That’s all. First and foremost, I would never wish ill will upon any opponent or anyone like that.”

“To have an accident like that happen and end someone’s career, especially someone who’s one of the best that ever was, 100%, it sucks.”

“I’m not asking anybody to understand, I’m just saying, just leave me alone, dude. [Laughs],” 

On Hart mentioning that he warned the WWE Hall of Famer before delivering the kick to the head during their Starrcade match, Goldberg said:

“Yes sir, 100%. Put your hand up. Do whatever you gotta do. It is what it is. Come on, man. I love you, Bret. Don’t be such a prick. That’s all. Grow up,”

When asked to describe what an interaction between him and Hart would look like now, Goldberg answered:

“I’ve always said I was gonna kill him, but you know me, dude. I can’t do that. I love the guy. He’s an icon. Just get over it. That’s all. I’m sorry.”

“What do you want me to do? As a human being, it saddens me that he can’t come to grips with…it sucks. It was more than an accident. It sucks. It just sucks.”

“But I’m not gonna be a victim of it [laughs], not anymore. I feel bad, but it’s not gonna draw me down and be a negative in my life by any stretch. It just is what it is.”

On wanting to headbutt Bret Hart, Goldberg said:

“If it comes up and I see Bret, my natural reaction is gonna be to headbutt him. But I’m a 57-year-old man, dude. I can’t go around and do stuff like that anymore.”

“That’s just an emotional reaction. It’s like having a beef with [Ric] Flair at this age.”

“Really? What are you gonna do? Come on, please. I love you, you’re an icon. Let’s move on.”

“But it’s easy for me to say move on when it’s not me and it didn’t end my career. So next question,”

Goldberg and Bret Hart are part of the talking heads on VICE TV’s “Who Killed WCW?” series that airs on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern.
