Controversy is a word synonymous with WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart. From the infamous, Montreal screw job, to numerous controversial comments made over the years. Bret Hart, intentionally or not, tries his best to stay relevant. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, had the following comments about fellow Canadian, Tyson Kidd's injury:
"It seems to me there was a lot of poor planning involved in that injury. I don't know whose fault it is or why an injury like that happened, but someone is accountable."
The Hall of Famer then goes on to blame Samoa Joe for performing his patented, Muscle Buster finishing maneuver on Tyson:
"It's extremely dangerous. The move that Samoa Joe did was reckless, and the way they rushed that match beforehand in the back without giving Tyson time to prepare was a mistake."
Are you serious, bro? This has to be a work, right? "It's extremely dangerous." WELCOME TO WRESTLING, BRET! There are countless wrestling maneuvers that are far more dangerous than the Muscle Buster. Speaking of the Muscle Buster, the move that Samoa Joe has successfully and safely performed for over a decade, is now extremely dangerous because a former member of the Hart Dungeon was injured by it?
If this move is so dangerous, don't you think that WWE would have banned said move beforehand? I don't know whose fault it is or why an injury like that happened. That's called an accident, Bret. Injuries happen all the time in this business. Some are on purpose but most are freak accidents like this incident. Also, Tyson has prepared himself for wrestling moves for his entire life. Time to prepare? Really?
To blame Samoa Joe for Tyson Kidd's injury shows how out of touch and ignorant Bret Hart is. This is a man who feels robbed because of a similar injury that took his life away. This is a man who has sour grapes at the business that robbed him of years off of his life. This is a man that tries everything he can to stay relevant. Please Brett Hart, sir, do us all a favor, stop! You were one of the best wrestlers of your time, maybe of all time, but ignorance like this is tarnishing your once good name.
