In the second installment of our Forbes interview with Bret Hart, the Hitman discusses his problems with WWE’s creative process, praises Cody Rhodes and doubles down on his recent comments of Seth Rollins being reckless in the ring.

On Scripted Promos

“If you watch wrestling, like I do. If you watch for the wrestling. There’s so much talking. There’s some twit back there with a pencil behind his ear writing writing down all these things for wrestlers to say. It all starts to sound the same,” said Hart.

“There was a difference back in my time, where we all had to make up our own verbiage. So when you watch those interviews, a certain part of you comes out and that’s what makes those characters so great.

“I’ve seen today, even in my own case for the bits and pieces I’ve done in wrestling, where they give you five pages of script to go out and interrupt somebody and say this or that, it might even be really small and pretty limited sort of dialogue but it’s hard to do. Especially when they give it to you at 3:00 and then you start to memorize it, and you have it sort of memorized at 5:00 and they come up to you at 6:00 and it’s all changed.”

On Cody Rhodes in Comparison to Seth Rollins

“I think that Cody Rhodes, if you watch wrestling like I do as a wrestling fan, he’s to me one of those wrestlers that I would put in the category of ‘Excellence of Execution.’ Every move he does is safe and perfectly executed. There’s a lot of wrestlers today a) their execution is lousy and they’re not safe. You watch Seth Rollins who they’ve pushed as this huge mega, mega push. I watched him a few months ago, and you can watch it back on YouTube but he knees John Cena in the face. Just knees him in the face so hard, so recklessly, so dangerously, you can easily kill somebody with a knee like that in the face,” said Hart.

“It’s a testimony to John Cena that a) he finished the match and b) that he didn’t get a shotgun and shoot John Cena when he came through the curtain.”

Hart also blamed Bill Goldberg for costing him “millions of dollars” and talked up Wade Barrett and Drew McIntyre.
