The two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart has made some serious revelations. He has accused Triple H and Shawn Michaels Bullying The Rock Backstage In The 90s. His claims will blow your mind away. Read the article to know the full story.
On the 15th episode of Confessions Of The Hitman, Bret said that a lot of wrestlers tried to break The Rock to get him out of pro wrestling. And not just that, he even claimed that they had almost succeeded.
Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart said, “A lot of the wrestlers would give him a hard time in those days, a really hard time, enough to try to break him and get him to quit and they almost succeeded. And I can remember going to bat for Dwayne quite a few times and kind of looking out for him, Owen too. I think Owen and I had a lot to do with sort of looking out for him when he first came down.” Hart added, “[The Rock] was kind of a marked guy.”
Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart recalled an incident when Shawn Michaels lashed out at The Rock for doing a drop kick off of the top rope. He said, “I remember Shawn Michaels coming into the dressing room and dressing down poor Dwayne… And I believe, [HBK] told [The Rock] to never do a top rope dropkick ever again because that was his move… The Rock was [deflated] because, in those days, Shawn had a lot of weight. He was a pretty important guy for the company, a veteran guy kind of dressing him down like that, he was apologising and said he didn’t know, and he thought it would be okay.”
Bret Hart continued,”I remember the door closed after Shawn left and I said, ‘that’s bulls**t. That’s total bulls**t.’ I said, ‘nobody owns the dropkick off the top. You can do that. Owen does it all the time! Why doesn’t he cut a promo on Owen?’ I said, ‘they’re just busting your chops and they’re trying to work on you.'”
Bret Hart further revealed that Triple H was not any less. He said, “Triple H was the same. He was always out to get The Rock. Shawn was out to get him and they just worked on him, and worked on him, and worked on him. And I left. [The Rock] was still in the doghouse with those guys. They wanted him [out] as bad as they wanted me out. Like, they were after him. And, for me, maybe a year later, he started getting his break and he started to take off in WWE.” He added, “and I’m so glad he overcame their petty bulls**t.”
