- WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart was interviewed this week by Brian Fritz of Fanhouse.com to promote the new SmackDown vs. RAW 2011 video game. Hart spoke candidly about TNA – saying it’s run by people who don’t know anything about the wrestling business and feature ‘dinosaurs’ on television instead of the company’s real stars. Here are some highlights of what Bret Hart said about:

Hogan, Bischoff & Russo Together Again In TNA:

“Well, I’ll be honest. After being in WCW and being around them, you start to realize that these guys — Bischoff in particular — never understood or knew anything about wrestling. They just struck me as guys that didn’t understand wrestling. To see them working with another company now, to me, I think you’ll eventually see that they don’t know anything. They didn’t know anything then and they don’t know anything now. They’re not going to make a difference anywhere they go.”

TNA’s Young Talent Getting Smothered By Dinosaurs:

“Yeah, competition is always good. I have a lot of respect for the young wrestlers there like AJ Styles and Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe, Abyss, different guys. I know they’ve got a lot of talent there and guys that I consider good friends of mine including RVD (Rob Van Dam). I wish them all the best and I hope the younger stars get a chance to show what they’ve got rather than coming back to the old dinosaurs like Hulk Hogan or Eric Bischoff with the same old certain babble that he’s been doing for 10 years when he’ll babble about nothing. He somehow positions himself to be a star on the show and I think there’s real stars that need to get that light and not him.”

    Is “I lost” the new Linton ? Ban that asshole. He has posted boner remarks all over this website.

    @Jim

    I guess the Hart Dynasty are not considered “young talent” when the family beat on Vince. After Wrestlemania, he’s helped put them over since.

    @Jason

    You obviously didn’t get enough oxygen at birth. Anyone with a fully functional brain can see that he hasn’t done jack for TNA except make it worse. He’s even insulted fans on the Internet when he should have taken suggestions on how to improve the company. The storylines don’t make any sense. Ex: Angelina Love won the Knockout’s Title by opening a box. WHAT????

  • Jason

    Bret is such a moron the dude could never draw anything in his entire wrestling run. Bischoff is making tna great and the only people who say otherwise are fucking morons

    Hey “I lost”, as far as I know , this is not a gay site , and I dont want to know who gives you a boner , you fucking asshole!
    kamoteng kahoy, speak English, and talk wrestling.

    the has been says TNA’s Young Talent Getting Smothered By Dinosaurs: and what WWE are not doing that ?

  • keylo

    good point Jim as hart has memory problems it would seem the hypocrite has been

  • jim

    pot meet kettle Bret’s match at mania with Vince kept young talent off of the show.

  • matt

    since when kurt angle is a “young guy”?

  • i lost

    bret hart is just mad he cant give us a BONER like the great hulk hogan can

  • erik

    @venom I wish tna would fired hogan he is doing nothing in my view for company when it comes to money. I mean when it comes to hogan he can’t draw ratings he is not helping ppv buyrates or people buying tna ppv’s in stores or helping spread the word with tna.

  • venom

    I am usually a TNA basher on here, but I like the fact that they are actually doing something with Jeff Hardy. But I do get annoyed everytime Hogan is on TV. Abyss should just throw Hogan off the stage onto a bunch of tables.

  • Mark

    Agree with Bret too but got to be careful that he doesnt become like hogan

  • Kelly

    I agree with the Hitman Fully, Hogan for one can’t work a damn match these days because of his back, and the fact that he’s been out of his prime for decades now. Bischoff, doesn’t even realize he’s killing TNA it would seem, there was in fact a point in time, when I loved TNA because of what I saw, people like Chris Saban, and Alex Shelly, sure they’re still in the company, but do we see them getting pushed much these days? And don’t get me started on Vince Russo, you know why WCW failed in the end?, because the writing became Piss Poor so people quit watching.

    And what’s this? The Jersey Shore’s Jwoww is involved with the company now? What? As much as I rag on TNA, and I do a lot, I would love to see the Old Fossils go somewhere else and let the young blood, become future legends like them.

  • kamoteng kahoy

    tna/hart sucks! btw, putangina mo youtube at 20 something taipei!

  • michael

    I remember WCW very fondly when the whole NWO thing started the angle with Sting was perfect, however it ended up going no where because of poor writing, and Hogan always having the spotlight. which seems to be the same mistakes be made now. Fools never learn there lesson. To know hogan is a self promoting glory hog just listen to Bubba the love sponge every now and the hogan please go away and take bischoff with you

  • scooter

    agree 100% and whilst a lot of people may say the same about Bret look at what Brets done he’s had less tv time than evan bourne for example and has put over the hart dynasty and bryan danielson when he’s been on the mic.
    Hogan would be a worthwhile addition to TNA if every once in a while he brought up a young talent like the mmgs or amazing red.
    Kurt Angle is the true biggest signing in TNA history FACT!

  • MARTIN

    They need to take a new direction in 6 months change the storyline! Hogan and Bishoff have to go after! Bishoff is a marketing man, he should have been there to sell merchandising!

  • Adam

    Totally agree with Bret in this case. Right now, Hogan, Bischoff, and Russo are the Three Stooges of wrestling. TNA started going downhill during the second half of 2007 and got worse as months went by. When Hogan and Bischoff came, TNA just became unbearable to watch. And that’s sad because you have Kurt Angle and a majority of young talent with a ton of potential but won’t have a chance to showcase it, because the guys who run TNA don’t know what the hell they’re doing. They just thought Hogan and Bischoff would bail them out of the hole they dug themselves in.

  • shawn

    well Harts opinion should be pretty valid considering hes a vet. wrestler. or he likes to talk about h and b in that manner. this “immortal” thing wont be around forever, maybe its a way to send off those two out of TNA.heels get their “comeuppence?” in wrestling.
