Hulk Hogan Accuses Bret Hart Of Hurting The Pay Of WWE Main Eventers & Being Two Faced

TNA star Hulk Hogan and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart have a well-documented rocky relationship, dating back to 1993 when Hogan was supposed to drop the WWF Championship to Hart at SummerSlam '93 but allegedly refused to do so before leaving the company. During a recent interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine (Issue 90), Hogan fired a brutal shot at "The Hitman", claiming that Hart drove down the salaries of future WWF/WWE champions by agreeing to work for less than everyone else.

“The main-event guy made the most money when he had the belt," Hogan explained. "When I was the (WWF) champion, I made the most money. It was an old rule that Vince (McMahon) Sr. had that, thank god, was passed on for quite a while. That changed when Bret Hart became champion; he'd work for a lot less than anybody else, so it changed everybody's pay."

Later in the interview, Hogan also implied that he felt that Hart was two-faced, stating:

“The last time I saw [Bret], he was flying around in my Learjet with me, and playing with my kids in the pool. Then, all of a sudden, we're not cool."

The six-page interview with Hulk Hogan is in Issue 90 of FSM, available on Thursday, February 21.
