There is a old story about Bret
Back in the 80s he had a match with this jobber from around that time, by the end of the match , Vince was so convinced that he had found the next big thing that he rushed to offer the guy a contract.
However , Bret was not in the guys next three matches and the true extent of his talent was revealed to be almost non existent and Bret carried the match from start to finish
Much like his match with Bulldog at Summerslam
Bulldog was on a come down from crack that night and two to three minutes into the match decides to tell Bret
“Bret , I’m fucked”
So Bret carried the match and people to this day call it one of the all time greats when it comes to matches.
Now,we fast forward to today
Roman Reigns vs Undertaker
Worst match ever at Mania
Because taker was injured and Roman had no idea how to carry the match
If that was Bret
It would have still been an instant classic
Same with Rollins
How many people has he put on the injured list?
Compared to I dunno
Double digits vs 0
I can see why Bret is considered one of the greatest champs of all time
He was a work horse and clean as a whistle
His record speaks for itself
dude wasnt a workhorse, but has Hogan ever injured anyone?
