The Rock Says Bret Hart Helped Him When He Was A Rookie In WWE


During a recent interview with The Illuminerdi’s Joseph Deckelmeier, The Rock commented on Bret Hart helping him out when he was a rookie in WWE, and more. He said,

“The T-shirt is a guy who didn’t have to be, but he was so good to me when I was a rookie professional wrestler. And his name is Bret “The Hitman” Hart, and he comes from a very famous wrestling family. But at that time, he was world champion and there were a lot of guys in that world, at that time in 1996 that didn’t necessarily embrace me — just when I was a rookie coming in. Because everyone is hungry for their spot and there are a lot of — he’ll tell you, there’s a lot of sharks in the water. But that guy, Bret — he was world champion, and showed me how it was done.”

When actress Emily Blunt questioned why he thought Hart was nice to him, The Rock said,

“I think because he knew that — our families knew each other, and I came from a lineage of pro wrestling, and that I had a lot of love and respect for wrestling. And he was just a great guy. I always like to give him props when I can.”
