Bret Hart says Triple H sabotaged former WWE Superstar’s career. The Hitman revealed that Triple H did not like him and always criticized him.
Triple H is notorious for his backstage politics. There are countless tales of how he held back several wrestlers just to put himself ahead. WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart has added another name to the list of people that were screwed over by the Game.
During an interview with Asif Zulfiqar Ali on The 81 Podcast, Bret Hart talked about Ken Shamrock. He discussed the UFC legend’s shortlived career with WWE and how he was responsible for bringing him in.
“I was the guy that brought him in and kind of got him to do wrestling. H told me he broke his hand in UFC and said ‘I can’t fight for awhile.’ I said ‘well why don’t you wrestle? Make some money doing wrestling. You’d be a big star in wrestling.’
“Ken used to be a pro wrestler before he did the UFC stuff. It wasn’t that hard to go ‘okay I’ll go back to the pro wrestling stuff.’ I said ‘let your hand mend up and heal and we’ll do wrestling stuff.’”

Bret recalled Vince McMahon informing him of his decision to fire Shamrock before he convinced him to change his mind.
“I remember that Vince was going to fire him. And he (Vince) called me up and basically said ‘I’m just getting ready to call Ken Shamrock. I’m gonna fire him.’ And I said ‘why would you fire him?’ Vince was like ‘lot of guys didn’t like him in management.’
“And I said ‘I don’t think you should fire him. We really need a guy like Ken Shamrock. We can use a guy like that, he can be a star and we can make money with him.’ And I changed his mind. He goes ‘okay I’ll keep him.’ And they kept him.
“I always thought he was someone who could’ve been a way better pro wrestling star than what they allowed him to be.”
Bret knew exactly who was at fault for that not happening.
“To be honest, I think Triple H didn’t like him, mostly because he was connected to me. But Triple H I remember didn’t like him and I remember Triple H was working with him a lot, was always criticizing him and talking about him. I think that was one of the guys that stabbed him in the back a lot.”
