Bret Hart is a WWE Hall of Famer and a wrestling legend. He’s probably the best in-ring technician there is, was, or ever will be in a squared circle.
The problem is being a legend in this industry allows you to say whatever you want and people respect it, especially if you have your own podcast.
Recently, Bret Hart took to his own, “The Sharpshooter Podcast” to talk about Curtis Axel’s WWE push and his opinion on why WWE doesn’t utilize his father, Mr. Perfect.
You can listen to the full podcast episode right here. Below are some of the highlights:
What does Hart think about Curtis Axel’s push in WWE?
“I wish they would do so much more with Axel. Curt’s kid. It’s just such a shame.”
What does he think about WWE not using Mr. Perfect’s legacy with Axel?
“I’ve never understood it from the beginning. Even the name McGillicutty or whatever that gimmick was. I just seems almost like impossible odds to turn that in to any kind of successful storyline. What do you do with that? It never made a lot of sense to me. I think that he’s really a wasted talent. I think he’s a real talent. He’s every bit the athlete and the performer that his Dad was. I just always thought that he was a little bit like Cody Rhodes where it’s like they never quite gave him the right things to book him to be the star that he was.”
Do you think Curtis Axel should use his father’s gimmick?
