Source: Fighting Spirit MagazineIn a new interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine, Hulk Hogan took a shot at Bret Hart and claimed that Hart drove down the salaries of future WWE Champions by agreeing to work for less than everyone else.
"The main-event guy made the most money when he had the belt. When I was the (WWF) champion, I made the most money. It was an old rule that Vince (McMahon) Sr. had that, thank god, was passed on for quite a while. That changed when Bret Hart became champion; he'd work for a lot less than anybody else, so it changed everybody's pay."
Later in the interview, Hogan also implied that he felt that Hart was two-faced:
"The last time I saw [Bret], he was flying around in my Learjet with me, and playing with my kids in the pool. Then, all of a sudden, we're not cool."
The six-page interview with Hulk Hogan is in Issue 90 of FSM, available today from WH Smiths and Easons in the UK and Ireland, and for iPhone/iPad and Android via FightingSpiritMagazine.co.uk.
