-- Bret Hart
has an interview up with the UK Sun that you can check out at
In it, he talks about TNA
and is critical of Hulk Hogan
and Eric Bischoff
, such as the following: "I think TNA is seen as a serious rival by WWE, but not by the actual wrestlers. TNA's more of a wrestling show than a company because of the lighter schedule. We all think that competition is better, but WWE
normally stamps all over anybody that thinks about taking them on. TNA's reached out and got Eric Bischoff and Hogan — and that's where I'd take issue with their overall plan. They spent several years building their young stars and, like with what happened to me in WCW, I just sense they don't have enough brains between them to keep all the other guys going where they need to go. I fear TNA simply bought the names and they're going to get the same baloney we all did in WCW. No matter how old he is, or what kind of shape he's in, Hogan believes in his heart that he's the star of the show and he is wrestling. I don't think he gives a damn about anyone else. I'm one to talk considering how old I am, but I think I know my place in wrestling and I'm pretty careful about what I do. I can't even begin to imagine Hogan wrestling somebody like Samoa Joe
, who is in his prime right now. I have a lot of friends there and I would never rule out working for the company. But I certainly never see myself there while Hogan or Bischoff are. I think I'd rather not put myself through that again."
-- Bret will also be reuniting with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart for a photo session at the WrestleReunion show in January. Jimmy Hart has been added to the event as well, which takes place in Los Angeles.
-- As noted earlier here on the website, the Nov. 26 episode of WWE SmackDown! drew a 1.5 cable rating on Syfy, down from the previous week's 1.7 number. The number is the show's lowest rating on Syfy through nine weeks.
