Thoughts on the Iron Man Match with Shawn Michaels: “I was concerned with the difficulty but I never had any doubts about my ability.”

    Benoit still counts!
    fuck vince

    Im glad Bret Hart has found peace in WWE and its a shame he has not spoke to Owens children in so long. Hopefully then can one day. I think Bret always give a honest answer to a question

  • Chuva

    Bret is so delusional, he’s believing his own lies. Goldberg NEVER gave him a concussion, it was a freaking ANGLE! Bret injured himself at a house show days prior to the PPV. He botched a low bridge (falling backwards over the ropes) and dinged his head up. They moved forward with the PPV match against Goldberg, then had Bill “kick Bret in the head”, so he could get legit time off to recover. He stated so in an interview the day after the PPV.
    He was asked, straight out, “How’s your head after Goldberg gave you a concussion last night?” His answer, “Well, to be honest, that’s part of the story line. I do have a concussion, but that happened to me a few days ago at a house show. I botched a move, and landed pretty bad on my head. We went ahead with the PPV match, and just used my injury to account for my time off, and to make Bill look stronger.”
    Love his views on Hogan tho. LOL!

    fucking bitchass mother cock sukeers is what all of u bitches/ppl are

  • rick

    I think of all the younger guys, Sheamus is the one who could eventually become an awesome babyface. He has a different look which stands out from the pack, he can talk and wrestle, and he’s big which always helps.

    I watched a shoot with Bad News Brown and he hated Brets guts.

  • sroeballs

    I saw Sheamus wrestle in Dublin about 6 years ago & it was plainly obvious he was a cut above the rest of the lads in IWW (Irish Whip Wrestling). Never thought he’d main event a WWE PPV tho.

    WWE have stopped pushes & buried new talent before. I’m sure it’s some kinda test to see how he handles it & if the fans stay behind him or something. He just needs to grin & bear it, & eventually he’ll get the treatment he deserves.

    Just look at Jericho, Punk, Miz/Morrison,, Christian, RVD, Booker T, & even HHH in the mid 90′s. They were all buried at some stage, made it through it & regained their previous positions.

    Makes no sense of course, but Vince is crazy I suppose lol

  • CM Mark

    Punk is the most talented wrestler in the WORLD! Period. Brett you need to recognize!

  • JC

    Sheamus and Edge would be an awsome fued…….

  • Truthiness

    I wasn’t on the Sheamus bandwagon until the gap between his two championships, he has a few more championships coming. I think it would be best if they moved him to SmackDown and have him go after Edge like he went after Triple H.

  • bloodstone

    how does this make you right scooter ? sheamus would be killer if wwe used him right .drew suxs balls

  • cheesehandler

    ive been on the shaemus band-wagon since he destroyed jamie noble

    That’s a damn long time to not see Owen’s kids. I imagine Martha doesn’t want him around them, as he’d tell stories of Owen’s wrestling days, and she doesn’t want them everknowing anything about their dad being involved in the business that killed him. The fact is, they should be proud their father had the pride in what he did to put his life on the line for it.

  • Valo487

    I don’t know what Bret sees in McIntyre, so nope.

  • sroeballs

    Sheamus is awesome but Drew still sucks the big one

  • Rich


  • scooter

    now that you Brets endorsed both drew and sheamus will you marks admit I was right all along?

  • sroeballs

    I agree Eric. Usually tragedy bringsd a family closer together, this drove the wedge even further between them.
    Love how he gave props to Lesnar v Angle. It’s my favourite feud of all time & I’ve been watching wrestling since the late 80′s!

  • Eric Nixon

    None of the answers surprised me, except the one about not speaking to Owen’s kids. Man, that family’s messed up.
