Kevin Sullivan (not the wrestler), who authored the WWE Encyclopedia, has the following on his new website from an Interview with Bret Hart:
On Owen Hart: “Looking back today, I find I can slip back and remember little moments with my brother Owen in the ring all the time. As a matter of fact, I just bursted out laughing at something the other day. It was when I got Owen and Davey to come join me in the Hart Foundation. I had been fighting Owen for a couple years and suddenly I’m in the ring telling him that we shouldn’t fight and that they should join me. And I remember his facial expressions, they were so hilarious. I sold him in 30 seconds â€¦ all was forgiven and we were back together. When I talk to wrestlers today, they still say how much fun Owen was. He never made it seem like work.”
On Yokozuna: “When I wrestled him, especially at WrestleMania IX and X, he was still in his prime. He was getting a little heavier, but he was still moving pretty well. He was starting to get his confidence, too â€¦ I still think we had the best matches he ever had in that time period. I remember wrestling him in a cage match in Anaheim and I remember him coming to the back and saying it was the best cage match he ever had. I think it was the best match we had anywhere. He brought out th best in me.”
On Lex Luger: “He was a really good guy â€¦ much more likable guy than when strangers met him. I think the truth about Lex was he was a far better character as the “black trunks WCW Lex Luger.” He was a heel and much thicker back then. He was a bad boy heel. I think the American red, white and blue good guy gimmick was the wrong gimmick for him. He should’ve gone with the black tights. The “Narcissist” to the American dream boy was just the wrong thing for him. It didn’t fly with the people.”
