Current star says Vince McMahon didn’t want to watch five-time WWE champion

Natalya recently revealed an interesting story about Vince McMahon’s treatment of her uncle, Bret Hart, during his early days in WWE.

Hart worked in the ring as a WWE competitor between 1984 and 1997. Although he became one of the company’s main events in the 1990s, The Hitman mostly appeared in tag team matches in the 1980s.

In Corey Graves’ podcast “After The Bell,” Natalya claimed that McMahon had little interest in Hart early in his career.

“Bret Hart was told he would never make it,” Natalya said. Vince McMahon didn’t even want to make eye contact with Bret Hart when he first met him. Bret would later become one of Vince’s most valuable players in the industry, and Bret is still iconic and still talked about when Bret was once fired.”

Nearly four decades later, Hart is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers in history. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 (individually) and again in 2019 (Hart Foundation member).


Natalya still hopes to become one of Vince McMahon’s top stars

Ronda Rousey will defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Natalya at Money in the Bank on Saturday.

Discussing her current position in WWE, The Queen of Harts made it clear that she is never satisfied with where she is in her career. The 40-year-old still hopes to become a main event player in the same way that Becky Lynch and Steve Austin once did.

“Steve Austin was fired once, Becky Lynch was fired once,” Natalya continued. “I come in every day thinking that this could be the day something changes. We’re all in it together to some degree. You see people even at the top of the food chain, I’m backstage with a lot of them and we all go through the same thing.’

The former Divas champion added that she often feels “p****d” in WWE. However, she takes that as a positive because it shows how much she cares about her.
