WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart continued his outspoken comments in the next installment of his interview with the UK’s WrestleTalkTV Extra…
He said he has “no faith” in Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan to steer TNA in the right direction. “They’re going nowhere, if anything they’re gonna lose a lot of ground. They’re spending a fortune on a guy who’s worthless. And Bischoff’s as worthless as Hogan, the two of them have zero to offer the business,” continued the Hitman who was a major critic of the duo during his time in WCW.
“The only thing Hulk Hogan ever knew was how to make Hulk Hogan. He couldn’t tell you how to make AJ Styles or Samoa Joe. What’s Hulk Hogan going to tell Samoa Joe? He doesn’t know anything to even tell him, he’s got zero to offer.”
Hart said Vince Russo leaving the company was “a modest improvement”, but they still “picked up all the trash” from WCW, who were brushed aside after it folded.
“Bischoff knows nothing, he’s an idiot, Vince Russo was a magazine writer that thought he was a wrestling expert that never had a good idea in his life, and Hogan was pretty limited, all he knew how to do was [cup his ear] and do the leg-drop.”
Bret Hart said he did like TNA’s women’s division before Hogan was signed.
“I used to watch a lot of TNA, I thought their girl division…Awesome Kong, Gail Kim they’re really great wrestlers.”
He also said AJ Styles needs to go to WWE because he’s “spinning his wheels.”
“AJ Styles is a good a wrestler as anyone in the world, he’s really good, he should really be in WWE because he’s spinning his tires in TNA. It’s a shame because WWE’s the big stage. I look at Chris Benoit when he went to WWE; he actually cried on the phone he didn’t want to leave WCW, but I remember telling him on the phone you’re never going to get the break you deserve unless you go to WWE…If AJ Styles really wants to make it he needs to dump that bush-league and get to the big time…I just hope that AJ Styles doesn’t waste his life in TNA.”
