Bret Hart Says Royal Rumble Felt “Flat And A Lot Of Bad Calls”

WWE Hall of Fame
The Royal Rumble match felt like an improvement from the past few debacles, yet Bret Hart wasn’t impressed. He saw the match as helping the wrong talent get ahead.

“I thought it was really flat and a lot of bad calls were made about who got pushed and who didn’t,” said Hart on Ring Rust Radio. “I think it’s a sad state of affairs when they have the biggest wrestler in the world, the Big Show, go out there and be thrown out of the ring by just one guy is just stupid booking. I think you look at someone like Mark Henry who is billed legitimately as the strongest man in the world, he goes out there and he’s thrown out of the ring in less than 30 seconds? It all just makes me wonder. They have all these other guys that they are pushing, but then they lose track of what the Royal Rumble is all about. I was extremely disappointed this year.”

The WWE Hall of Famer was rooting for Brock Lesnar to win the Rumble. Lesnar won in his only other Rumble match. In 1994, Hart became the first and only co-winner of the Rumble with Lex Luger.

Even when Bret forgave the WWE for the Montreal Screwjob, he’s always been honest about his feelings towards the current product. For more from Ring Rust Radio’s interview with Bret Hart, please click here.

    Just a bit bitter because his arch enemy HHH won the title that night.

    First things first, get well Bret..that being said, he is wrong. Big Show and Henry dominating the rumble match would have been a big mistake

    • Joseph Lisnow

      i do think Big Show should have last at least 15 minutes. he didn’t even have to make the final four.

  • Lisa

    I agree with Bret.

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NewNation ??

    The Rumble match was good. I didn’t like Roman getting attacked by League of Nations and being out for like 15 or 20 minutes. You could have done that when Triple H came out in the end. The only reason I didn’t like HHH winning the Rumble match was because everyone knew it was going to happen anyways.

    I don’t agree with bret. I’m a big fan and I hope he gets better, however big show was thrown out to push strowman. It didn’t matter one bit to show, he can always get one big win and get back into the mix. Henry, shouldn’t of been thrown out as quick as he was though.

    100% accurate and now a real HOF member is saying the same thing as me. Stroman is a bum, Reigns is a bum, I’m not even sure why HHH is champ ? Creative is really dropping the ball, look it’s time to hit the reset button.
