WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart has never been shy of expressing his opinion.
For Hart, he puts aside the accolades that Goldberg has during his time in the pro wrestling business because of Goldberg’s track record of hurting people. This is Hart’s take and history may have something to do with it.
The reason for that is due to Hart being kicked in the head by Goldberg at WCW Starrcade in 1999. This left Hart with a severe concussion and post-concussion syndrome. This ultimately forced his retirement from the business.
“I wish that Bill Goldberg had never kicked me in the head as hard as he could. I don’t know how you give a guy a Hall of Fame thing for hurting as many wrestlers as Bill Goldberg hurt, and without consequence. He usually got a pat on the back and told how good of job he did out there, when you’re scraping the wrestler that worked with him off the mat. When Bill Goldberg kicked me in the head, I, honest to God ,I lost about 16 million dollars in like one second. I just signed with WCW for three million a year for another three years on top of the two years I had left on my original contract, so it was bad timing, and unfortunate”
