Former World Wrestling Entertainment Champion and Hall Of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart recently gave a Canadian website an interview where he talked about MMA. He said he does like it, but he seems not to like the more violent aspects of it when compared to wrestling.

There are alot more problems with Death and Drugs in Pro Wrestling then in MMA so i dont know what kind of point he is trying to make in this article.

There was another quote from that interview they failed to post, but I'll give you all an exclusive!

The Hitman: "I also really like knitting, but I prefer crocheting, because I feel the dull end of a crochet hook is -so- much safer than those nasty, dangerous kntting needles!"
<editors note: The Hitman then left the interview for crumpets and tea, due to it being a few minutes past noon>

For a pure wrestling family like the Harts to be saying anything positive about MMA is huge. They shit on everything that didnt come out of the Hart Dungeon.

Bret saying that he likes it is equivalent to the average guy going nuts about it, in my opinion. Doesnt surprise me too much though, as the Harts were a bunch of shooters originally.

Nice find, thanks.

Hart thinks mma is so violent, yet he's the one who got kicked in the head and forced to retire. Oh yeah, not to mention had a ******* stroke due to the kick. Wrestling is way more hazardous to your health than mma.

What impact is this supposed to have? Him and all his friends have become junkies or are dead or worse. We shouldn't have the same problems in 25 yrs as the wrestling fans have now. There is an inherent violent danger in fighting. There isn't supposed to be in what he did and those guys are in way more danger.

I'd bet Hogan loves it, and could come up with "100 reasons" he should be brought in as a hero/originator to "fight" once... or whatever reason he has to make money now. Once he got control of the name he'll schill to anything..

I've heard Hogan talking about MMA a little on the Bubba The Love Sponge show. Bubba and his buddies are big MMA and wrestling fans, but Hogan seriously believes UFC matches are fixed. He calls them, "work-shoots." Silly old fool.
