Detailed Recap Of Bret Hart On TSN’s “Off The Record”

Matt Boone

Nick Parsons sent along the following:

Hi, Bret Hart was on the sports talk show "Off the Record" on TSN in Canada today.

Segment 1: He said he came back mainly because he thought it would be fun. The why not outweighed the whys. He said it was never about the money.  He had a cast on his leg on the show still selling his ‘broken leg.’ He mentions that the hardest part of being retired is most of his friends have died likeOwen, Bulldog and Mr. Perfect. Bret said the wrestlers of today are much more focused and well behaved than his generation.
 
Segment 2: The host asked Bret about a number of wrestlers. Here’s basically what he said:
 
Shawn Michaels-He forgives Shawn to a certain degree. They talked the afternoon of Bret’s return. Said everything they said was very sincere and now with the weight off of each others shoulders they get along as much as they did before Survivor Series 97′.
 
Triple H-Only seen each other a couple of times and barely talked, said like is too strong of a word to describe how he feels about him.
 
Ric Flair-Feels sorry for him. Flair chose wrestling when he should have stopped and went home to his family, but never left wrestling and his family moved on. All he knows is the wrestling life of the locker room, airports and bars.
