Legendary wrestler Bret Hart left WWE on the night of the Montreal Screwjob at Survivor Series 1997. Recently, he talked with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp about the hypothetical benefits he’d have if he hadn’t left WWE.
Bret started by saying that his sons would’ve become wrestlers and joined WWE. But since he left WWE on sour terms in 1997, his children never looked in that direction.
“I think, for what it’s worth, probably my two sons would have probably become wrestlers and probably would have been good wrestlers. I know that they both really turned it off after that and never went in that direction anymore. I think if things had been different with my career and WWE, they would have gladly ended up moving into that end of the business and becoming wrestlers. So many things changed.”
Hart then said that his brother Owen would not have died on live television if he had been there with him.
“I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but I always believed that my brother Owen’s accident would have never happened if I had been there. So, there’s a lot of things that unfortunately happened.”
