Bret Hart has given a strong opinion on Triple H, claiming that the WWE Executive is over-rated and has never had an original idea for anything.
Speaking on The 81 Podcast, Hart spoke strongly about the 14-time World Champion also claiming that his family connections are the only reason he is in the position he currently is.
There’s always some guys you know that no matter what they do with them, you always wonder how they got there. I never thought Triple H ever had an idea, original idea for anything. I always thought he was over-rated. The reason people even know him or remember him today is because daddy or daddy-in-law put him over.
Bret Hart and Triple H did share the ring together during ‘The Hitman’s latter days with WWE, although this was mostly during live events with a handful of televised encounters. Once Hart had left, Triple H would go on to feud with his brother Owen during the early part of 1998.
Triple H is known as the second man to hold the Grand Slam of titles in WWE, with the first man completing the feat being his D-Generation X partner Shawn Michaels. The last belt ‘The Game’ won to complete his Grand Slam was becoming Tag Team Champion in 2001 alongside ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
Away from the ring, Triple H now serves as Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development in WWE, whilst also being seen to spearhead NXT alongside ‘The Heartbreak Kid’.
Also on the show, Bret Hart discussed wanting to face Ken Shamrock at some stage in his career. Shamrock was the special guest referee for the encounter between ‘The Hitman’ and Steve Austin at WrestleMania 13.
