[1995-01-21-WWF-Superstars] Heartbreak Hotel: Bret Hart

Recommended Posts

Heartbreak Hotel is the only show that can knock Home Improvement out of the #1 time slot. That doesn't even make sense. His guest is Bret Hart, and based on the graphic in the corner of the screen, I guess this was part of the Holiday Wish Tour, whatever that was.

 

Shawn says the scuttlebutt in the WWF is that Bret has changed, and then asks Bret if he has. Bret says he had a small part in Lonesome Dove, and it was fun, but he's back to work. Shawn accuses him of spending too much time in Hollywood and not enough time focusing on his match with Diesel at the Rumble.

 

Bret assures everyone that he's focused and that he'll be ready. The two of them get in a little shouting match back and forth, which Bret looks better in, and there we go. Okay segment.

 

No Bix, this is not the segment where Bret's tights magically change colors halfway through. :)

It was so apparent that Bret and Shawn hated each others guts, and it wasn't just a work. When Bret grabbed the mic I half wondered if it was going to turn into a brawl. Given that the objective was to hype Diesel vs Bret this totally missed the point. HBK always had to be the centre of attention.

Michaels accuses Bret of having "changed." He brings up Bret's beard, which was grown for Lonesome Dove but certainly came off as evidence of a possible heel turn. Did we just retcon the Shawn/Diesel split for this segment? All of a sudden Shawn thinks Diesel is going to squash Bret, which sort of goes against the past 2 months of television. Shawn finally corrects himself and hopes that Bret and Diesel both destroy each other at the Rumble. Bret finally yanks the mic from Shawn and gets to the point at hand, which is hyping a PPV title match.
