Bret Hart on Triple H: "I think Paul is a little overrated"

Wrestle Talk TV is featuring an interview outtake online with WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart where he speaks very candidly about Triple H and his thoughts on his career.  Below is a few quotes of what Hart had to say along with the clip.

"I have a certain amount of respect for Triple H.  I remember when he first came in I remember complimenting him on stuff he did.  I remember when Paul first came in and you do a lot of really nice stuff out there.  Triple H was always a good wrestler.  But great?  What is he, a 1,000 time World Champion now?  How great really is he?  I look at Punk, I can look at certain wrestlers and say this guy is an innovator like a Rey Mysterio - who can come up/done stuff that nobody ever thought of before.  Punk has done stuff - really unique moves and you go geez, I've never seen anything like that before.  Then you look at someone like Triple H.  When I look at him, he's always had a good look as far as his body went.  He's always had a muscular physique.  But you look at somebody like Hunter and you ask what has he ever really...done?  What's a move he created nobody ever saw before?  He's mostly a guy that showed up and they (WWE) made him.  

He's always been a decent wrestler.  I would consider him a pretty good wrestler and pretty talented.  But great?  I don't know.  I don't think so.  And if he's running the show, what has he ever done that's great?  He's never had a great match I don't think ever.  Whenever I look at Triple H's matches, including the last one he had with Undertaker, I don't mean it as a knock, I told myself before I watched it because I'm trying to like Paul now these days (smiles), I said I want him to do something to make me think yeah, he's got greatness in him.  I remember watching it and going, I can picture the whole match in my head, I can tell you exactly what this match is going to be like and how it is going to go.  I remember watching it and it was exactly like I predicted.  I thought it was mediocre at best.  Maybe a 4 out of 10 or 3 out of 10. Whereas guys like Punk go out there, I say impress me and they do.  It's unique and fresh.

I think Paul is a little overrated."
