If Drew McIntyre was given the choice to wrestle any current WWE Hall of Famer, it would be none other than Bret “Hitman” Hart.
Speaking on a recent edition of the “Under the Ring” podcast, the Scottish Warrior named Bret Hart as a legend who he would have loved to face.
Additionally, McIntyre discussed Hart’s popularity in Europe, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On who his WWE Hall of Famer dream match would be: “I’ll probably go with Bret Hart. He’s been my favorite growing up. He’s had that believable style, we’d do some cool stuff in there.”
On why Bret Hart is so popular in Europe: “I’m not quite sure. He’d come out with a leather jacket and sunglasses and looked like a rock star I guess. But, also that style, if you’ve ever seen UK/European wrestling, it was a very mat-based style and it was still in existence at the time when Bret was taking off. For me, I didn’t really realize or didn’t appreciate Bret as much as I do now until I started wrestling. I was like ‘Oh I like watching Bret Hart.’
“But when I started wrestling and understanding the way he structure his matches and the psychology, I was able to articulate a little bit better why I was a fan of his. You know you have the Hulk Hogans and the Ultimate Warriors at the time, these larger-than-life charismatic guys and Bret with his in-ring style was so believable, he told such a compelling story.”
