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.”
