Re: Bret Hart On WWE Wasting Talent
One problem I have with fans saying Shawn Michaels was better than Bret Hart is the fact that Michaels only became a greater performer since his return, before he was good, but not a Bret Hart who could work with anybody and make them look good.
Both wrestlers departed the company around the same time.
Now let's say Bret Hart didn't have the concussion and was healthy enough to return back to WWE. Say he and Shawn were to return at the same time, I can guarantee that more wrestlers at that time would have been more willing to work with Bret Hart than Shawn Michaels. It took Triple H to bring Michaels back, Hart could have faced anyone.
Guys like Austin, The Rock, Undertaker would have jumped at the chance. This is why we saw the interaction between Undertaker, Kane and Hart once, those two respected the hell out of him and would have loved to face Hart. This is also why Austin was there for the contract signing against McMahon and Hart.
Many others would have worked brilliant matches with Hart and there would have been a huge number of classics. Bret Hart returning back then was big money, a match with McMahon, Austin, Michaels, Rock, Hogan, all are money making matches. We seen what happened to Michaels back then, were any of his matches big money? I don't think so.
I say this being 21 years old and never watched a Bret Hart match in his prime, apart from some of his WCW matches.
