Bret Hart has never hesitated to take shots at Triple H when he could and this time, it's over video game ratings. On his recent Sharpshooter podcast, The Hitman talked to his sons Blade and Dallas about how Triple H had a 98 rating in WWE2K16, while Bret had an 85 rating.
"I like the new one but I have some discrepancies with the game a little bit. I went to a thing last fall when the latest 2K game was coming out. They were telling me how I'm an 85 or something like that and Triple H is a 98. I remember I was like, 'Why would he be a 98?' and they go, 'Well because he's the boss and we have to suck up to the boss.' I don't know, he was laughing about it, it kind of pissed me off. I thought, 'I don't care how many titles Triple H wins, he could never lace my f***ng boots up. Period."
Wow, that's quite the strong reaction over a video game rating, but Bret wasn't done there.
"He was a very good, medium, mediocre wrestler. He never blew me away with anything he's ever done, he's never come up with much. He's always been a very decent wrestler that could give you a good match but as far as being like mind blowing... I never saw it, I've still never seen it. I've seen him in some matches and the whole "4/10" thing came out of his match with Brock Lesnar, which should have been such a good match. It was a mediocre match, if that. That's where the "4/10" comes from, he's always a guy that will give you a "5/10" match every night. He's going to give you all he can give you and that's just my opinion. There are certain guys where you put these video games out and I don't care, I think you have to do justice to the wrestlers as they were in their careers. It should be based on reality, not things like who you know in the office. Vince McMahon could make him 35-time World Champion and it doesn't mean he's 35 times better than anyone else that ever wrestled, he's just not."
That's quite a long rant by The Hitman. He and Triple H seem to have a good business relationship, as they're always seen chatting backstage when Bret shows up at an event, but clearly there are still some personal issues. Bret clearly doesn't seem worried about offending the man who will presumably run WWE one day.
