Bret Hart is very appreciative of CM Punk and Dax Harwood constantly paying homage to him on AEW TV.
Various matches from the AEW event on Dynamite purposely had similar endings to famous matches from Bret Hart’s career.
Harwood often takes to social media to profess his love for Hart. Last month, Harwood received a text from Hart the night before their match against CM Punk at Dynamite.
In an interview with The DropKick Podcast, Hart was asked if he had any words for Punk and Harwood. He answered:
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 help them with their careers. I just want them to know I’ll always be in their corner cheering them on.
I think Mo’s got a great shot at becoming a big star. He’s got a good attitude, he’s got a lot of heart. He’s got a lot of great wrestling moves. I think he’s done his best to do a lot of things the way I used to but there’s nothing wrong with that. If he could be as good as I was, that’s a good start to your career. I think he’s gonna make a big name for himself.
When asked if he had any advice for other young wrestlers pursuing a career in the business, Bret Hart said:
Watch as many of my matches back all the time and study it and learn how to do it right.
