World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) WrestleMania 32 may have created the highest attendance record for a pay-per-view, but it was unable to wet the appetite of WWE legend Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart. The 58-year-old believes it’s wrong how part-time talent like The Rock is earning more money than all the wrestlers who were featured in the Battle Royal, considering they are on the road for 300 days a year. He also believes having Shaquille O’Neal earn more than most wrestlers on the card is harmful to the business.
The five-time WWE champion was impressed with only a couple of matches over the WrestleMania weekend. Although Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose wasn’t one of them, the man from Calgary, Alberta, Canada believes that it was one of the believable matches of the night.
“I was really disappointed with a lot of outcomes. The booking, in general, was just up to snuff for me.” Hart said on his podcast.
Previously, Hart did mention that the main card at WWE WrestleMania 32 was “the worst in history”, as reported by Fansided. Father of 4, Hart stressed on the fact that most of the segments on the company’s biggest pay-per-view of the year was unbelievable. He especially highlighted The Rock’s encounter with the Wyatt Family.
“Rock suddenly has his trunks on under his sweatpants like the whole thing was staged That’s what killed it for me, as soon as I saw him pull off his sweats it’s like ‘this is all set up’” Hart mentioned.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Sami Zayn and Asuka vs. Bayley were the only two matches that impressed the WWE legend. The interesting part here is that neither of these matches were showcased on the main show and was part of WWE’s NXT:TakeOver which took place on Friday before WrestleMania.
