Bret Hart, the WWE Hall of Famer during the ‘Confessions Of The Hitman’ web series, reflected on the modern-day pro wrestling and named few of his favourite wrestlers of the current time.
Bret Hart explains the rule of pro wrestling
During the web series, Bret Hart discussed how pro wrestling works. It is the art of making the moves look real without actually hurting the opponent. He said that the quality is being overlooked by the fans.
The Hitman said, “To be able to make [pro] wrestling look real and to do it in a way where it looks real and nobody gets hurt, it’s a quality that is often overlooked by [pro] wrestling fans and people.”
Bret Hart also recalled his time when he wrestled without hurting his opponent in the ring.
He continued, “It’s like the most important question is how they work. Like, how do they wrestle? Do they wrestle safely? I was always a guy, when you went into the ring with me, you came out the exact same.”
Bret Hart recently slammed fellow Hall of Famer, Goldberg for his low-quality wrestling skills and how he hurt his opponents whenever they shared the ring.
Bret Hart threw light on the rules of pro wrestling and further discussed the way of working inside the squared circle safely. He explained that protecting the opponent is the most important aspect of pro wrestling.
Hart said, “The most important rule is when you walk out there, you got to make sure that whatever you do, you’ve got to protect the guy you’re working with first, over yourself. You put your own body at risk to protect the guy you’re working with all the time.”
Bret Hart on contemporary pro wrestling
Bret Hart said that the wrestlers of the current generation perform the moves too quickly and they too much. He said these moves are very high-risk moves, dangerous and injury-prone.
The performers could hurt themselves and their opponents. If he had been wrestling, he would not want to be on the receiving end of the moves.
‘The Hitman’ also praised AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan and Edge for their remarkable in-ring abilities and also hailed them for being safe, despite performing high-risk manoeuvres. He named these stars among his favourites.
