Bret Hart has devolved into a bitter old-timer that keeps faulting the WWE climate, product and its Superstars. And as reported a few days back, his latest targets were the Fabulous Freebirds, whom he labelled as unworthy of a Hall of Fame induction.

Michael Hayes, who was a part of the Freebirds, didn't take kindly to the vicious criticism and shot back at Bret through a series of tweets. In reply, Bret Hart has released a heartfelt and apologetic message through his Facebook account.

He also took the opportunity to apologise to Triple H and Seth Rollins, who have also been the victims of Bret's critical opinions of late.


Bret's Apology:

I'd like to take this opportunity to formally apologize to Michael Hayes. A while back I made comments about the Freebirds not being as worthy of being in the WWE Hall of Fame as others. 

It was unfair for me to dismiss their contributions to the industry and they certainly did great things in Texas with the Von Erich Family. Michael Hayes always treated me with great respect, as did Terry Gordy, Ronnie Garvin and Buddy Roberts and I'm sorry if I disrespected any of them with my comments. 

Furthermore I apologize to both Triple H and Seth Rollins for any hurtful comments I made on my podcast. The reality of all this is the reason I quit doing podcasts in general, because they're for the most part an outlet for negativity, and have left me with a reputation as being angry and bitter. 

I'm not, I'd spoke candidly and openly but it's no excuse for minimizing other wrestlers or their contributions. In saying all that, I still believe Jim the Anvil Neidhart of the Hart Foundation, including Owen, Brian Pillman, Davey Boy Smith, The Dynamite Kid, Jimmy Hart, The Rougeau Brothers, The Killer Bees, The Demolition, Rick Rude, King Kong Bundy, and One Man Gang all deserve their place in the WWE Hall of Fame. 

My apologies to all. Bret Hart x


We all know that a Superstar being featured on the WWE 2k series is usually followed up by their return to WWE programming, as Sting and Goldberg would tell you.

And the WWE usually doesn't let slip the mention of the Superstar unless work is already underway to get him or her back into the scheme of things.

You would be excited to know that the latest entrant into this list is CM Punk. While it is being publicly claimed that Punk has a multi-fight contract with the UFC, and is expected to see it through, the mantra of the WWE has always been 'never say never'.

In keeping with that, CM Punk's name has been dropped during Chris Jericho's entrance in the WWE 2k17 game, with Jerry 'The King' Lawler doing the honours on commentary. 

And what's more, he also goes on to serenade him as the 'Best in the World', a moniker that Punk regularly used when he was still wrestling in the WWE.

Make of it what you will, but you can't deny that this might get a lot of fans thinking...
