So the guy who came out and acted like Cena was worlds ahead of CM Punk (and who always praises Cena on TV) is complaining that the best wrestlers in the company aren't used enough? Yea, okay. I can't stand Brett, and I did watch during the AE.
Yes I agree however there may be some people that would argue that it was Benoit's personal demon portrayed outside of wrestling which is in some people's mind less bearable than Bret Hart Self-Marking, bitching and whining and crying and talking smack about the greats in the business (Hulk Hogan for example, though agreeably corrupt was "Maybe" still a little better person than Bret Hart in their entire careers) and such whining affects the business more since he talked about personalities and people he purposely rubs the wrong way.
and also the fact that Benoit outside of that deed was a little better as a person than even Pre-Bitter (pre 1997) Bret.
At least that's what i get from some Bret Hart Haters.
The funny thing about kids saying Bret has no charisma. Bret was incredibly over without saying a word, because his pink shades, style and shoulder shrugging. He definitely was over as fuk. There was a lot of swag there - charisma. Nobody ever has got the #1 spot with little charisma. He definitely had a huge presence every where he went.
Bret was only full blown single matches guy from 91-97. Within that span how much sh*t happened is pretty incredible. Guys like John Cena will main event for another 6 years and accomplish nothing. Your CM Punks, and other half ass talents that have been around longer as single competitors and never have and never will accomplish as much. Only the greatest have massive legacy's after a short while. The Rock, Stone Cold etc.
Shawn Micheals was playing the singles game in his prime as long as Hart and Bret Hart by far was the better of the 2 in terms of being over and money.
How is Bret boring? When he was feuding with Stone Cold was he boring? When he was feuding with Shawn was he boring? Why are these fueds talked about as the greatest.
Benoit was a great wrestler but these guys how memorable were they, the matches and feuds are not talked about what so ever.
Bret delivered more so than Shawn, had he stayed with the WWF even for 3 more years, his legacy would have been even greater. His feuds would have been epic. 1997 was an incredible year in and centered around Bret Hart.
Bret Hart - main event, show stopper, icon, mr.wrestlemania could have easily been his gimmick.
What? Benoit is considered best wrestler ever. He was far more entertaining than bret ever was.
