no lies told.
They didn't use him that well either.
They fukked up how to use him
Yet HitGOAT is more fondly remembered than Scotch Hall
Not in wcw
Bret was there for a couple years and he didn't get used much and then he got hurt. Big deal.
I remember that superkick from goldberg that fukked up his life...
why is that funny
hes a triple crown winner in WCW.
won the world title twice, the U.S. title 4 times and stayed in a major storyline the whole time he was over there.
at some point, you gotta stop blaming eric bischoff for bret hart not getting over with the WCW crowd and just admit that in the WCW, he was a small fish in a big pond.
triple crown winner in WCW.
2x WCW heavyweight champion
4x united states champion
1x tag team champion
how was he not used much?
Well when the NWO hit everybody was a small fish in a big pond.
because it came out of nowhere and never knew goldberg could do it...It's like mankind doing a perfect form roundhouse kick and clocking austin straight in the jaw...
shyt was totally out of left field...
Goldberg oafish ass put my nikka in concussion protocol for life fukk dude.
Everyone parrots the "he was used wrong" thing, but he was pushed pretty strong in 98. Any stronger and he'd be pushed above Nash/Goldberg/Hogan/Sting, which wouldn't make sense because he wasn't as over.
They gave him programs with familiar, over guys like Flair, Perfect, and Macho for his first few months, then turned him heel and gave him maybe the biggest heel spot besides Hogan for the next 6 months. He feuded with Booker, Sting, and DDP for the 2nd half of 98 and got to put a bunch of guys on the shelf storyline wise, including Sting.
His 98 run wasn't bad TV-wise, and he was pretty over when he turned heel, but he wasn't putting on the quality of matches he did in WWF. And looking at the guys he was working with, it's hard to say it was them. DDP and Booker were having great matches with everybody but Bret in 98.
Yeah... it does suck but all the greats is washed up now regardless anyways... Wrestling, dangerous shyt does happen...
