Bret Hart in AEW

Bret Hart has spoken of his appreciation for AEW stars CM Punk and Dax Harwood and says he’ll always be in their corner cheering them on.

Over the past few weeks, AEW stars CM Punk and Dax Harwood have both been outspoken in their love and admiration for wrestling legend Bret Hart.

During the media scrum after AEW’s Revolution pay-per-view, Punk went as far as saying he would give up his return in a heartbeat if he could give it to Hart.

“I just feel super fortunate, grateful, and appreciative that I got a second chance. I’d give it up in a heartbeat to give it to Bret but I’m gonna enjoy it and I just love that motherf*cker so much you know. He’s the greatest and he was right. Bret Hart is always right.”

Meanwhile, Harwood has hinted at trying to get Bret Hart to manage FTR now that they’ve fired Tully Blanchard. On April 7th, he revealed that ‘The Hitman’ has his phone number and he broke down in tears when he received a message from his hero.

“…and yes, Bret did text me last night. Yes… I broke down in tears.”

“… and yes, I am an almost 38 year old man, with a family, that still cries about wrestling.”

Now, sitting down with the Dropkick Podcast, Bret Hart has spoken of his appreciation for the fandom of the two men and said he wishes he could see them more often and help with their careers.

“I appreciate them, it means a lot to me for them to be big fans of mine. I try to cheer them on as much as possible. I wish I could see them more often and be more of an input to helping them with their careers. I just want them to know I’ll always be in their corner cheering them on.”
