Bret Hart Speaks on Why He Returned to WWE, Talks TNA

Nick Paglino

CalgaryHerald.com has posted a new interview recently conducted with Bret Hart. On whether or not WWE brought Hart in for Raw last week because it was going up against Impact, Hart said "(TNA is) playing it up like that. Like WWE was scared of whatever Hulk Hogan was going to do, so they went and got Bret Hart to compete." That’s not the case, says Hart, who adds that plans were underway for his comeback long before Hogan’s was announced.

On the notion that Hart may have returned to WWE because he needed the money, Hart said, "Like a lot of people, I got a little worried about my finances last year when the stock market crashed. But it’s kind of rebounded and I was in a position where I could either walk away from this deal or I could do it. . . . I’m not opposed to making a little money . . . but I still don’t need to do it."
