WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart has seen it all when it comes to the world of professional wrestling. He is certainly well-versed in tag team wrestling as well. It seems he has also saved the WWE career of a former WWE Superstar.
Bret Hart recently spoke ‘The 81 Podcast’, where Hart revealed that he helped Ken Shamrock keep his job in WWE and not get fired.
“In fact, I remember Vince was gonna fire him and he called me up and basically said ‘I’m just getting ready to call Ken Shamrock, I’m going to fire him’, and I said ‘why would you fire him?’ and he was like ‘a lot of guys didn’t like him or in management’. I remember I said ‘I don’t think you should fire him, we really need a guy like Ken Shamrock, we can use a guy like that, he could be a star and we could draw money with him’.
“He ended up changing his mind and I remember he goes ‘alright I’ll keep him’, and they kept him and then he did pretty good. That was all in the early going when he showed up.[…] I always thought he was someone who could have been a way bigger star than what they allowed him to be. Triple H, I remember, didn’t like him, and I remember he was working with him a lot and was always criticising him and talking about him. I think that was one of the guys who stabbed him in the back a lot.”
