Eric Bischoff Comments On Bret Hart In WCW

Eric Bischoff recently addressed Bret Hart's WCW run on his "83 Weeks" podcast.

Bret Hart signed with WCW in late 1997 and debuted on Nitro that December. Hart’s time in the company is poorly reviewed by many and Hart himself has criticized WCW for not doing more with him during his time there.

Eric Bischoff addressed Hart’s WCW run on an edition of his “83 Weeks” podcast.

“Bret was probably more affected by what happened in Montreal than a lot of people felt he should have been,” Bischoff said on the show. “It was a horrible thing, it was a bad thing, completely horrible situation and all that but once it’s over, it’s over. You’ve got to kind of move on and look for something positive to do next and Bret had a hard time letting that go. He was carrying that around with him and it was pretty obvious in a lot of conversations that we had.”

Bischoff would also say that him and Bret had a lot in common outside of wrestling during this time and their conversations were often about things outside the business.

Conrad and Bischoff then watch Bret being interviewed by Gene Okerlund on an episode of Nitro during the podcast. Bischoff’s comments about Bret Hart’s time in WCW can be viewed in the player below:
