Even legends argue sometimes. There have been a lot of major names to grace the wrestling ring over the years. Some of these stars achieve their fame for different reasons and some may be more popular than others. Just because they get out of the ring does not mean that their rivalries are over though and in this case, two of the most famous names of all time aren’t seeing eye to eye.
Earlier this week, Bret Hart participated in a Q&A session in Belfast, Northern Ireland where he said that at one point, he was offered to be the head of the Kliq. Almost immediately thereafter, Kliq members Scott Hall and Kevin Nash both responded on Twitter, saying that the claim was not true. The following night in Dublin, Ireland, Hart reiterated his claims and said that Nash can “go to hell”. He went on to detail the story, which he says took place in Germany. Hart says he wanted no part of the Kliq and turned down the offer.
Here is the original tweet from the Four Sweet Horsemen podcast, Hall and Nash’s responses and Hart’s response to the two of them:
Fucking news to me. I was the only one he got along with.

Opinion: This is one of those things where it happened about twenty five years ago and each side is saying something different. That can make for some interesting discussions, though there is not exactly a way to prove yourself right or wrong. Hart is outnumbered here, but maybe he is telling the correct version. Neither side has any particular reason to lie about something like this but maybe it is just different people remembering things different ways.
Who was your favorite member of the Kliq? Would Hart have fit in with them? Let us know in the comments below.
