Bret Hart On His Reputation, Forgiving HBK, Montreal Screwjob

Writing His Book: “In a lot of ways the writing was really cathartic for me. I tried to let it take its own course. I never rushed anything. I found myself putting a full day just into writing a whole page.”

The Montreal Screwjob: “For me I don’t really have much issue with it anymore. If you asked me that up until probably about a year ago I’d have probably said something different. But I’ve cooled off a bit now. I don’t want to carry it around anymore. If [Shawn Michaels] wanted to apologize I would accept it. I’d move on but I wouldn’t forget it.”

Inducting Shawn Michaels into the WWE Hall of Fame: “Maybe if he wants to make himself feel better about it he should have the guts to pick up the phone and apologize. Then we’ll see after that.

Did He Take the Business Too Seriously?: “Maybe I did take it all a bit too serious. But that’s what made me special and hopefully makes people remember me as someone who was passionate about what I did and what I thought wrestling was really all about.”
