Shawn Michaels Comments On Current Friendship With Bret Hart
Shawn and Bret's friendship is seemingly as strong as it's ever been
WWE Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels has spoken about his current friendship with fellow Hall of Famer Bret Hart.
Talking with Ariel Helwani during an appearance on The MMA Hour, Michaels had nothing but good things to say about his former rival.
Discussing the deterioration of their relationship and attempts to mend fences, The Heartbreak Kid said:
"When everything is said and done, that was hard on both of us. It's like an out of body experience. I have nothing in common with the person that I was then. Bret and I always talk about it – there was a friendship there before. There really was. And to have damaged that...and to have wanted to mend it for so many years...we could never get it done".
Nowadays the two are on great terms, with Shawn noting a particularly pleasant reunion at this year's WrestleMania.
"It means a lot to both of us when we see each other now, and I always appreciate he always looks at me and says, 'We're good. We're good, Shawn', and that means a lot because I know it's genuine. Bret doesn't say stuff just to say it. Bret is not a mincer of words, and he means that. It's one of those things, you don't wanna go the rest of your life not having that healed".
