During a recent episode of Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette spoke on whether he thinks Bret Hart is bitter about the way his career unfolded. Here’s what he had to say:
I don’t think — he doesn’t look back at his career with regret. He had a great career, and he did a lot of things that he was proud of and accomplished things. Maybe he regrets that he doesn’t own the whole video library, ’cause at least he got the Stampede stuff. I think he probably — if anything that he would regret, he probably regrets the whole interaction with Vince the last year there [in 1997]. It could have gone so much better for everybody. And anybody would regret going to WCW when they got handed the actual hottest pro wrestler on the planet and made him a special referee and they had no creative … he might regret that certain section, but Bret did a lot of s**t and will tell you himself, he was very over. Not only in the states but in Canada and around the world. So I think he’s pretty proud of most everything.
Well I mean — everybody says ‘Oh, he’s bitter, bitter!’ Grumpy, cranky? I know many things that I’m grumpy or cranky about, but not bitter. It just [becomes], ‘Ah, f**k, I can’t believe they f**king f**ked that up,’ or whatever. That’s not really bitter, that’s just grumpy and cranky. Bret’s the serious one, he’s never been the Jolly Joker like Owen was. So I think Brett’s — every once in a while, he’s just cranky about certain s**t. But I don’t know about bitter.
