People that are older than 16 do remember them. Unfortunately, you appear to have not followed wrestling during the 90's, but like to pretend you know what you're talking about.

No, even before that Shawn was far superior to Bret as a performer.
Yep, that's why Bret usually had better matches with the same opponents. Hell, he had better matches with the likes of Jean-Pierre Lafitte and Hakushi (quick, look them up on wikipedia) than HBK did with main eventers.

But I'll bet there are hundreds of threads on Bret hart's boring matches.
Good luck finding them.

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

Kidd has no personality, character and lacks every reason you'd need to believe that he can be taken serious. He may be one of the best in ring superstars they have but that doesn't really equal "entertainment."

Nobody really reacts to him either.

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

Bret is right honestly. As if the matches weren't short enough, once they switched to the 3 hour format and started weighing the show down with endless recaps, commercials, product placement, etc... I lost interest in it. You'd think they could find time for multiple matches that can run 10 minutes or longer, but instead it's more crap.

They have some very talented wrestlers like Kidd, who should actually have programs in the midcard, but they don't use them. They stick them on Superstars.

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

Ok, I'm sorry but Tyson Kidd is boring as fuck. no one wants to watch him, he's great in the ring, cool story, no one wants to watch him cause he has the charisma of a cardboard box.

How can he be the Greatest of All Time if he isn't better than HBK?

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

LOL someone posted something stupid and this thread has now 5 pages with off-topic. If a troll posts here that Stone Cold was a jobber in the Attitude Era would you waste your time trying to convince him or would you just ignore him?
SMH how some people are easily trolled

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

I will be the first to admit, Bret hart was slightly before my time. But I have taken the time to go back and watch his matches, I've also read through his book.

When I was younger, yes sure, Bret hart was very boring to me. Because as a child and a teenager, I was more interested in the characters and the storylines. But once you get past the stage of "Wrestling was still real" and learn of the technical side of wrestling, that is when I began to appreciate Bret hart as a technical wrestling. I admit, he is not the most charismatic performer, he's just a great in ring wrestler.

His Match against Austin at WM is one of my all time favorites, along with his matches against Mr Perfect. Whilst Bret does moan...a lot, and after reading his book, I couldn't always stomach the Hart families "We are wrestling royalty" Attitude, even Natalya said that on Colt Cabana pod cast. And before I get flamed to hell and back by some mark, it's just my opinion. I'm not knocking that fact that Bret isn't a great performer, it's just his moaning gets in my nerves. He wasn't the first wrestler to get screwed by Vince and he won't be the last.

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

Tyson Kidd is a great wrestler but thats all he is. Same with Drew Mcintyre. They need a personality to make it in the industry. Look at Miz for example, I dont like the guy, but no one can deny he has somehow managed to establish himself through hard work.

Face it, he was the definition of boring as a performer and as a personality. People slept during his matches. There's a reason Shawn Michaels managed to surpass Bret Hart and is also considered the greatest performer in history. Bret is only known for his constant whining.

The Rock would be ashamed of a fan like you...

Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent

This young generation is so corny......for some reason they're obsessed with constantly talking out their asses and expressing strong opinions about things that happened before they were born. And I have no idea why.

You won't find me telling people who are older than me and were actually there, that Harley Race was better than Billy Graham or some shit. Why? Because I wasn't there, and have no idea who was better. It's before my time, and I can comprehend the concept of not talking out my ass and having an uninformed, worthless opinion about EVERYTHING. Stick to talking about Kofi Kingston and the shit that is of your own time, you little turd nuggets, and shut the fuck up when grown folks are talking about things that they actually know about.

Rant over.
