WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart was recently the guest on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast. Here are some highlights…..
On approaching Triple H and Vince Mchahon about becoming a writer a few years ago:
“I hesitated on that for a long time; it was about four years ago I went up to them and threw the ball at them, made that pitch that I would give them ideas and help with the writing of the shows, creation of the matches and how storylines would go and so forth. I think I would be really good for them, but I sort of made the offer, but the way it was thrown back at me was about the schedule; I was letting them know that I didn’t want to be on the road everyday but that I could fly in for TV, and I think I left with letting them know that I can fly in for TV and never heard from them. Vince and Triple H thanked me for the offer and we left it at that.”
On being interested in working at the Performance Center:
“It could be figured, and worked out. It’s not impossible. I can go anywhere. Sometimes a change of scenery might be fun, but I’m also very happy where I am at. I have a beautiful house, and life, but you know, working on Monday Night Raw might sound good for me, but realistically maybe they need more; they look at their agents: Mike Rotunda, Arn Anderson, whoever they are, they’re on the road all the time with all that consistency and commitment, and I don’t really have that which is why I most likely haven’t gotten a call. I want to be a helper but don’t want to give my life away for it.”
On WWE having high profile matches on TV each week with little to no build:
“I liked the way it worked before where they kept you away from each other until you had the match. Now, I notice on RAW they are wrestling the same match that they would have on the pay-per-view, so now it’s no wonder that their tickets for SummerSlam weren’t going so briskly as they would have liked because people have already seen it.”
