Bret Hart Remembers Savage + Obama-WWE Statement
"He was so loved and respected by everyone, especially the ones that worked with him," Hart said of his former colleague. "I think we're all feeling a real deep sense of loss. He was such a good man and somebody that we all loved and cared about so much. Randy was a real one-of-a-kind guy.
"I don't know how much you can explain how much of a loss this is to the wrestling world. We've lost so many wrestlers over the years and in this case at least, I feel a little better knowing God checked Randy out rather than something like drugs or something like that."
