WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart made an unannounced appearance at the Inside The Ropes - Evening with Jim Ross and Jim Cornette event in London. Hart sat down and revealed what his original idea was for his Wrestlemania 13 match-up with fellow Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels, as seen in the video above.
"Shawn was a great wrestler, one of the best I ever worked with -- maybe the best I ever worked with in a lot of ways. I had an idea where I was gonna -- if you could visualize like it's like a thirty, thirty five minute match me and Shawn would've tore the house down with a really great match and the place is going crazy. Basically a duplicate of the ironman match all over again, but we wouldn't go the full hour again. I wanted to do a thing where Shawn was stomping his foot, getting ready to give me the big kick, and I'm in trouble like I'm pulling myself up form the ropes on the other side of the ring and Shawn goes to give me that big kick as I stagger over to him, just like at the iron man match. Except this time I would take Shawn's foot, catch it in the air and get him to the ground and put some kind of a shoot hold on his foot and break his foot right in the middle of the ring. I wanted Shawn to tap out like they do in UFC, where it's like when they break somebody's arm they tap out pretty fast and everyone jumps in and it's a very serious kind of thing. I wanted to break Shawn's foot and then they hand me the belt and I would've gone over and stand over the top of him and go 'f*ck you.'"
