WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart appeared on last night’s episode of WWE Backstage where the former world champion talked about a multitude of pro-wrestling related topics. One notable conversation was about Hart’s departure from WWE (after the Montreal Screwjob) to WCW, a decision that the Hitman admits he could take back considering the promotion didn’t know how to properly utilize him.
I remember Vince saying to me, ‘WCW would never know what to do with a Bret Hart.’ After about 3-4 months I realized how incredibly true that was, that they really didn’t know what to do with me. They had no appreciation for my skills or my abilities. I remember often going to Eric Bischoff and going, ‘How about throwing me with this guy? How about I do this?’ They would always come up with the most lame reason.
Hart even goes as far to say that he wishes he could have worked things out with WWE, and is sorry he ever appeared in WCW.
If I could do it all over again, I think I’d try to find a better way … to stay in WWE. Knowing what I know now about WCW, I’m sorry that I ever went there.
