Vince EASILY was worse.
Even if you 100% disagree with Bret's stance.....at least he was up front, straight forward, and honest about it.
Vince was sneaky, deceitful, and dishonest and did some real snake shit.......and those are by far the worst qualities. Vince did some real bitch ass shit.
And to me, it seems like as the years go by, more and more people(who only read about it online and were either not yet in their daddy's nutsacks, or were in diapers when it happened) are siding with Vince.......which shows how bitch-assness is ok with so many young people. It's reflected in the bitchass way a lot of these people conduct themselves. Sneaky, dishonest, passive-aggressive, scared, and quick to "tattle" and try to spin things. It's a sad trend.
There is no good excuse for refusing to job on your way out. None at all. What makes Bret Hart even worse in all of this is that he bitched endlessly about Hogan refusing to job to him. Bret STILL bitches about that to this day. Total, and complete hypocrisy.
When your boss, the one signing your checks, asks you to perform a specific task related to the job at hand you do it. It is not acceptable in any line of work to refuse to do the job you are paid to do.
Also, Bret, being the biggest mark for himself in wrestling history, seems to forget that wrestling is fake. Its not like he was really losing a fight to Michaels. It was the most unprofessional behavior of Bret's career outside of refusing to ever put Steve Austin over in a match.
Bret had never done anything to Hulk. Shawn acted like a complete bitch towards Bret. There's a big difference. Hulk had no reason to do that to Bret. Bret had a great reason to do that to Shawn.
Not to mention, in 1993 Bret was a reliable guy, hard worker, well liked, and was coming off a successful title run. There should have been no issues with him being champ. On the other hand, in 1997 Shawn was a coked up, pilled out, unprofessional and unreliable mess, who many hated and didn't trust, and had a prety disappointing run as champ in 1996.
Point being, Bret in 1993 was a much better option to pass the torch to than Shawn in 1997.

Not everyone is a dishonest bitch like that. Based on all accounts of his career, Bret wouldn't have pulled something like that. Vince or Shawn(back then) if they were in Bret's shoes? They very well may have done what you say. Seems pretty unfathomable that Bret would've though. Not everyone is a bitch-ass dude like Vince. Most have more integrity than that.
