Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart has a habit of speaking his mind in years gone by, and a lot of that stems from feuds from within the wrestling business. He’s fallen out with Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Vince McMahon – basically anyone you can ever think of that is a big name.
And that includes the man who dominated the WWF in the 1980s and early 90s – Hulk Hogan.
In 1993, The Hitman dropped the WWF Championship to Yokozuna at WrestleMania 9, before Hogan out of the blue challenged the gargantuan heavyweight and captured the world title once again.
Hogan apparently told Hart that he would repay the favour for him in the future, but it never happened as he departed the company just months later – an act which made Hart label Hogan as the ‘biggest liar of all time’.
The two would go on to work together in WCW in later years, but considering he called Hogan a ‘two-faced, backstabbing, steroid freak who deserved everything he got’ in 2011, there was no love lost for Hart.
In a live question and answer session on Instagram, Bret labelled Hogan as a ‘phoney piece of s**t’, which tells you all you need to know about the Canadian wrestling legend’s thoughts regarding him.
Bret gave absolutely no context to his comments, but the hatred does still seem to be stemming from nearly 30 years ago.
Of course Hogan’s controversial racist comments that were leaked back in 2015 have seen even more people unsurprisingly sour towards him.
And Hart’s latest words are bound to cause a stir within the wrestling community, and with the Hall of Fame ceremony coming up during WrestleMania weekend, the two may very well be in the same room.
If so, that could be one awkward encounter!
