Bret Hart breaks down recounting stories of Hulk Hogan

Mar 23, 2014 - by Steve Gerweck

A very emotional Bret Hart discussed his disappointment with Hulk Hogan
after he became WWE champion for the first time in 1992, stopping several
times to compose himself after crying in front of everyone on stage at
today’s event in Manchester. Bret said that he considered Hogan a friend
and looked up to him during his time in the WWE however after Hogan came
back following WrestleMania VIII things changed. Bret recalled how he
stuck his hand out for 30 seconds to shake Hogan’s hand after he saw him
the first time since he returned in 1992 and Hogan and Beefcake stood
there ignoring him completely. Hart broke down recounting how Hogan spread
rumors about him in the locker room saying that Bret wasn’t “one of the
boys” and that he “shouldn’t be trusted,” two things that really bothered
him because they couldn’t be farther from the truth. Fans at the
Manchester Comedy Store sat quietly as the WWE Hall of Famer wiped tears
from his eyes and then cheered him to show their support. Hart then told a
story how at the Hall of Fame in 2008 when he was inducted, he and Austin
were talking backstage and Hogan came over to shake their hands, and both
did to Hogan what Hogan and Beefcake did to Hart back in 1992, leaving
Hogan without a handshake, to laughs and applause from the crowd.
