Bret Hart Says Samoa Joe Was Reckless, Maddox Dresses As Punk, Funk Remembers Dusty

Tyson Kidd Samoa Joe

Bret Hart Calls Out The Muscle Buster

Although there isn’t believed to be any heat on Samoa Joe from WWE, Bret Hart called the Muscle Buster reckless during an interview with Sports Illustrated.

Tyson Kidd is currently wearing a neck brace after taking the move badly in a dark match.

“It’s extremely dangerous. The move that Samoa Joe did was reckless, and the way they rushed that match beforehand in the back without giving Tyson time to prepare was mistake. Tyson is, pound for pound, one of the best wrestlers in the world. And that includes his mind. If you went behind the scenes at WWE, Tyson is an intricate piece of so many other matches. It’s a shame that a guy who is that talented and given so much to the company is hurt, but I just hope it’s not so serious that his career is over. I only know that he’s hurt pretty bad and they’re crossing their fingers. I’m not sure if he’s going to need surgery, but it seems to me there was a lot of poor planning involved in that injury. I don’t know whose fault it is or why an injury like that happened, but someone is accountable. The WWE has done a lot in the last few years to improve conditions for wrestlers. They have doctors there and they give wrestlers adequate time to prepare, but in looking at that happened with Tyson Kidd, clearly there is still a lot of room for improvement.”

Bret Hart also said he thinks Daniel Bryan’s career is over:

“Daniel Bryan is finished. He’ll never wrestle again. I don’t think he knows it yet. I feel terrible about Daniel Bryan. For all intents and purposes, he had the exact same thing happen to him that happened to me after Bill Goldberg kicked me in the head [ending Hart’s career].One day, you learn it’s over. Doctors tell you that you can’t wrestle and you’ll never wrestle again. I lost millions of dollars because of that. I pray that it’s not the same for Daniel Bryan.”

Brad Maddox Fools Fans

Live fan reports from last night’s WWE house show in Las Vegas suggest some fans were fooled by Brad Maddox’s new look, briefly thinking it was CM Punk. Maddox has also tweaked his in-ring work to include more kicks and CM Punk style moves.

Terry Funk Remembers Dusty Rhodes

Terry Funk recently appeared on Busted open Radio to discuss the life of Dusty Rhodes.

“He just had a great amount of charisma. Why did I love going in the ring with him? Was it because I was his great buddy? I was his friend, was that the reason? No. What the great reason was that why I enjoyed so much going in the ring with him… and believe me, as I loved him too and everything else and I love him for those two other reasons … but I loved going in the ring with him because I made more money with him than I did with anybody else. He was a tremendous attraction. That’s why I enjoyed going with him (laughs) ya make more money with him. The Dream was something special. He was a phenomenal in-ring performer but his greatest attribute was his mind and his ability to interact and talk to the people themselves… to the fans themselves.”
