WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan was a recent guest on the Full Send Podcast to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about people he’s had beef with throughout his career, Hogan went in-depth on the issues Bret Hart had with him.
“The only other person was Bret Hart, who thought I basically sabotaged his career,” Hulk Hogan said. “Because Bret thought he should have been the greatest wrestler that ever lived. And he said it was my fault. Okay.
“The Bret Hart thing I really didn’t understand because when he got pissed at me, basically I won the belt from Yokozuna at a WrestleMania where Bret lost and Bret told me to go in the ring and wrestle, and I won the belt right after Bret wrestled. And the deal was for me to drop it back to Yokozuna.
“And then Bret got my face and said, ‘Hey, you’re supposed to drop the belt to me!’ I said, ‘No, I’m not.’ He goes, ‘Well, yeah, you are.’ I said, ‘So let’s go talk to Vince then.’ So we both went in and sat down and talked to Vince. Then Vince looked at Bret and said, ‘Bret, that’s what you thought you heard.’ So ever since then, he hated my guts and wanted to kill me.
“Then, when Eric Bischoff asked me if I could work with him at WCW, I said, ‘Hell Yeah, bring him in. I can work with anybody.’ All of a sudden, we had about eight or nine great matches. We got along great. We traveled together. And then, when WCW was over, he hated me again. Okay, whatever, but it’s just stuff like that.”
Despite Hogan’s claims, Hogan and Hart only had three singles matches against each other in WCW, and two were at untelevised events. Their only televised match against each other ended in a no-contest on the September 28, 1998, episode of WCW Nitro.
