WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart has once again taken shots at Triple H. As heard above on a recent episode of Bret’s Sharpshooter Podcast, he talks with his sons Blade and Dallas about how Triple H had a 98 rating in the WWE 2K16 video game while his character had an 85 rating. Bret said:
“I like the new one but I have some discrepancies with the game a little bit. I went to a thing last fall when the latest 2K game was coming out. They were telling me how I’m an 85 or something like that and Triple H is a 98. I remember I was like, ‘Why would he be a 98?’ and they go, ‘Well because he’s the boss and we have to suck up to the boss.’ I don’t know, he was laughing about it, it kind of pissed me off. I thought, ‘I don’t care how many titles Triple H wins, he could never lace my f–king boots up. Period.'”
“He was a very good, medium, mediocre wrestler. He never blew me away with anything he’s ever done, he’s never come up with much. He’s always been a very decent wrestler that could give you a good match but as far as being like mind blowing… I never saw it, I’ve still never seen it. I’ve seen him in some matches and the whole “4/10” thing came out of his match with Brock Lesnar, which should have been such a good match. It was a mediocre match, if that. That’s where the “4/10” comes from, he’s always a guy that will give you a “5/10″ match every night. He’s going to give you all he can give you and that’s just my opinion. There are certain guys where you put these video games out and I don’t care, I think you have to do justice to the wrestlers as they were in their careers. It should be based on reality, not things like who you know in the office. Vince McMahon could make him 35-time World Champion and it doesn’t mean he’s 35 times better than anyone else that ever wrestled, he’s just not.
As far as the games go, I think they should be honest. Someone like Bruno Sammartino should never be a jobber on a video game, so and so forth. I think you have to pay respect. When I think of a video game, I think about how I’d love to have Buddy Rogers vs. Ric Flair, something like that where you can wrestle these Legends against each other from different periods and stuff. They should always represent the reality of what the business is and was. It should also include the respect the wrestlers have for each other in the dressing room.”
