WWE Hall of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart recently spoke to TSN's Daniel Bruno.
DB: Is there a reason that wrestlers come out for their match with their hair soaking wet?
BH: The truth is for me I always wet my hair because it was a way of waking up. You get tired, flying in and driving up and then it’s like your finally ready to go out and you gotta deliver in your big match. So, I always used to take a big cold glass of water and pour it over my head and kind of wake myself up before I went out. And then everyone after that is just trying to look like Bret Hart (laughs).
DB: Favourite heel of all time? Favourite bad guy?
BH: Favourite heel? Ya, I got lots of them that’s a good one. Steve Austin was my favourite. When he was jumping me at every turn back in the 90s, back before he became a good guy. Before our match at Wrestlemania 13, the months leading up to that he was just the baddest bad guy. He was a really good character.
DB: Favourite good guy wrestler? Or favourite babyface in wrestling terms?
BH: John Cena strikes me as one, Sting is maybe another one. They were two guys that always seemed to be faces.
DB: Speaking of John Cena, do you think he’ll rebound this Sunday at Night Of Champions and beat Brock Lesner?
BH: I think Cena is going to win. And I think Cena is going to win big!
