This Sunday, WWE will put on its annual Pay-Per-View (PPV) known as Payback, and there are going to be two big-time legends in attendance. Not only will they be there, but the two WWE Hall of Famers will be in the corners of the superstars in the WWE Women’s Championship match. One thing has been revealed now, though. Bret “Hit Man” Hart will be in Natalya’s corner when she faces Charlotte, but he doesn’t really want to be there.
One of the biggest matches at the PPV this weekend is going to be Charlotte defending her WWE Women’s Championship against Natalya. It’s a bit of the new breed vs. the old breed with both sides having a very long wrestling legacy behind them.
It’s no big secret that Ric Flair would be in his daughter’s corner for the match the same way he has been for months now. Natalya, though? She needed some back-up against the “Dirtiest Player in the Game” and his daughter, so she looked to her own family.
Just last week, it was revealed on Monday Night Raw that Bret Hart was going to be at the PPV and be in Natalya’s corner.
Even with Bret Hart confirmed to appear at Payback, it doesn’t seem like it is the happiest of times for him. The wrestling legend isn’t totally thrilled about appearing at the PPV, and he really doesn’t want to be there at all, as he told Total Wrestling Magazine.
“I do it to honor Nattie, I [have] no desire to be there no desire to be on TV. I’m happy to be there for Nattie but I’ve just had wrist surgery so it’s not a great time.”
Well, that is straight up and goes to show you just how much Hart actually cares about being there this Sunday. With her uncle there, Nattie Neidhart is going to have the sides evened out since Ric Flair won’t be able to interfere without Hart stepping in.
That is the one thing that may actually make Bret Hart look forward to being at Payback, and it’s the possibility of him and Flair getting involved in the match. Wrist surgery may keep him from doing too much, but there is likely one move he can still do without much pain.
“It’ll be great to put Flair in the Sharpshooter, though.”
The two wrestling legends waged war in both WWE and WCW over the years, and they always put on a good match when together in the ring.
Bret Hart has always been quite outspoken, but he has had a lot to say lately when it comes to the product that WWE is putting forward. About a month ago, he went as far as to say that the card for WrestleMania 32 was the worst he had ever seen.
A number of fans and critics were compelled to agree with him, but it’s known that the card was hurt by the massive amount of injuries that WWE has had to deal with over the past year. Still, Hart was just expressing his opinion, and if anyone knows what looks good or doesn’t in wrestling, it’s the Hit Man.
Bret “Hit Man” Hart doesn’t do a whole lot with WWE anymore, but he shows up occasionally and will work with them from time to time. He does plan on being at Payback this Sunday, and he’s doing it so he can back-up and support Natalya in her quest to win the Women’s Title. If it were totally in Hart’s decision-making option, though, he wouldn’t be anywhere near the event.
