‘The Queen of Harts’ Natalya, has given her opinion on Sting using Bret Hart’s Sharpshooter as his finishing move and her uncle’s opinion of ‘The Icon.’
In 2020, Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart spoke to Fightful about his famous finishing manoeuvre and who, in his opinion, was the best and worst at applying the hold. During the interview, Hart cited Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock as having the most difficulty applying the hold, and named Sting as the best.
A few weeks later, ‘The Excellence of Execution’ and the face-painted legend exchanged mutual respect for each other via social media despite being rivals when they were both part of WCW.
Now, Hart’s niece, Natalya, has spoken to Sportskeeda about Sting using the move made famous by ‘The Best There Is, The Best There Was, And The Best There Ever Will Be’ and how her uncle regards his colleague:
“You know what’s funny is that I’ve never heard Bret say anything but good things about Sting. I know that Bret has so much respect for Sting. So, I think that Bret would probably think like, ‘That’s cool.’ You know, maybe they could have teased like something with them having competed against each other. So, but yeah, I know Bret really likes Sting a lot.
And, you know the Hitman, one thing we can all agree on the Hitman is that he always shoots straight. He always says what’s on his mind. What’s in his heart and it might not always be politically correct, but Bret Hart always is very real. He is very much about integrity. And I think that’s why people love him so much because he doesn’t sugar-coat anything, but he loves Sting; I know that.”
Currently on WWE television, Natalya has aligned herself with Tamina with both women set to partake in the 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble Match on January 31.
