Bret Hart spoke to The Canadian Press about WWE '13 and the Attitude Era. Here are a few highlights. The Attitude Era: "By the early '90s when I was sort of in my prime, we started moving to the Attitude Era and I like to think that I kicked the doors open for the Attitude Era. It was more about the wrestling. It wasn't so much about the characters, even though we were in a lot of ways much more interesting characters. "The titles really seemed to mean a lot to the wrestlers in that era. Winning and losing and being on top was sort of critical... Winning titles meant prestige and better pay. The top guys were making the best money. So there was a lot at stake. I think all that played into that Attitude Era. I know for me probably in '97, for sure, I had my greatest matches in the WWE. I was for sure in my prime, (doing) my best stuff." Undertaker changing his character: "Whereas in the beginning, he was kind of like Frankenstein, kind of moving around slow and ponderous in the ring, and was very methodical. But times changed and by the mid-90s, Undertaker had revamped his whole character." Hulk Hogan: "I don't want to rag too much on Hulk Hogan but he's pretty one-dimensional. Very big guy. The great, magnificent body that he had — the 22-inch arms and all that kind of stuff. But after a while, after (The Ultimate) Warrior came, it was like, 'Enough of the body-building, let's go on with who can actually do a drop-kick and who can actually climb up on top and do stuff.' "I think the wrestling really did change from these sort of dinosaurs to the guys who were really picking it up and doing the moves." EXCLUSIVE STORY: How WWE Got Themselves Into A Pickle....
