[1992-08-22-WWF-Superstars] Interview: Bruce Hart

Recommended Posts

Bruce warns Bret not to be overconfident going into Summerslam because Davey Boy's a great wrestler. Wow, give Bruce Hart 45 seconds max and he manages to not self promote or do something tasteless!

Bruce delivers a third rate heel Owen promo talking about Bret's big head and how Davey Boy will win at SummerSlam, all while wearing a DBS shirt. Fortunately they picked the right Hart brother for a heel run when the time came.

Bret's talented but is an egomaniac and that will be his downfall. I don't think this is a wrestling promo, I think this was Bruce speaking off-the-cuff and someone filmed it with a hidden camera.

Apparently they really wanted Bruce for Owen's role but Bret insisted on Owen.

I've always wondered where they got the idea for Owen's King of Harts character. I agree with those who say that Owen did it with a ton more style than we saw from Bruce here. Still, the idea's planted that at least someone in the family's on Davey Boy's side so he isn't reduced to being just "Bret's challenger".

 

It doesn't look like anyone else was contacted to throw in their two cents; I guess Owen was busy in Japan.

Bruce certainly doesn't have much nice to say about Bret. Wonder how much of that is sour grapes.

The  Bret-Iwen angle was actually Bruce's idea, with Bruce casting himself in the Owen role. Bret eventually got Vince to change it to Owen because he knew Bruce would screw it up. Bruce may have been just planting the seeds for that angle here.
