Bret Hart critical of how WWE treats wrestlers Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/11/2018 at 12:05 PM
During recent interviews, Bret Hart has been outspoken about how WWE treats wrestlers. Here is what Hart said to Dan Gelston of APNews.com:
"If I could have worked half as many days, I would have been a hundred times happier," said Hart. "That was the sacrifice that we all made and we all suffered through. Iím not sure there was anything we could have changed about that. If todayís wrestlers can have the money, they can get on a lighter schedule, Iím all for it. Itís important for the (WWE) to look after their talent a little better than they used to."
In another interview with CBS' In This Corner podcast, Hart brought up the new XFL:
"They're gonna put millions of dollars into the XFL, another one. We all know that's being paid for by the wrestlers, by the wrestling industry. But none of that is gonna filter down to any of the wrestlers. That's gonna filter down to a bunch of football players being padded with football contracts and they're gonna have special doctors and they'll get all the things the wrestlers never got. They will be treated like the finest cattle you know animals, you know the treatment they will get is heads and tails above what the wrestlers will get. The wrestlers will get chicken feed at the bottom. If they get injured, they get sent off. It's a very cut and dry world in pro wrestling."
