Terry Gene Bollea also known as Hulk Hogan is an American retired professional wrestler and Bret Sergeant Hart who is popularly known as Bret Hart is a Canadian-American retired pro wrestler. Both of them are two of WWE’s top Superstars. They both have massive accomplishments. Despite sharing the background from WCW times, they do get along.
Bret Hart, in a recent interview, demonstrates that when he first began wrestling, he was friendly with The Hulkster. Hulk Hogan was always one of his buddies, and he recalls Hogan telling him once that his father was a great fan of the My Hart Foundation.
According to Bret Hart, “I always thought Hulk was one of my good friends”. The wrestling veteran believed this because of his admiration and friendly demeanor.
Bret Hart continues, “I worked a lot with Hulk; I taught him a lot; I helped him when he first started.” Hart was convinced that Hulk Hogan and he were friends at the time when Hulk became a big star. However, when Bret Hart won the title, he stated, “I guess I was no longer Hulk’s friend anymore”.
A wrestling veteran recounts that after claiming the title, he went to speak with Hulk Hogan and attempted a handshake, but Hulk ignored him and continued his conversation with Beefcake. According to Hart, “I remember to stand out there with my hand out for about 20 seconds.” Even though he was appalled by Hogan’s behavior, he remained silent.
Then, recalling all of this, Bret Hart describes Hogan as “the big dog and the king dog“. Bret Hart accuses Hulk Hogan of bad behavior because he was the Champion at the time and Hogan was envious.
Bret Hart asserts that Hogan became his greatest adversary and that he wanted to take the belt away from him. The veteran also spoke with Vince McMahon, who stated that Hart would have the title for a long time. One night before WrestleMania in Las Vegas, he receives a message to come and speak with Vince.
For Bret, it was hard to believe when Vince informed him that they were now taking the belt from him. Later, he discovered that Hulk Hogan was putting so much pressure on McMahon. “Take it off and put it on him,” or else he’d be heading to WCW.
The belt was then given to Hulk Hogan once more, and he began functioning as a dear friend. However, Bret asserts that he was aware of the truth. The feud between the two began here. Bret Hart continues by declaring that his fan base never dwindled. He always had tremendous support from all of them.

Bret Hart talks Hulk Hogan: “He was six-foot-eight and a one-out-of-three wrestler. He didn’t know a headlock from a headlamp. He didn’t know very much. He knew how to do a clothesline and maybe a body slam. He was very limited.”https://t.co/s1bZObUBu1

Hogan went on to say that he and Hart got along well at WCW, which Hart’s memoir backs up. However, once WCW folded, ‘The Hitman’ spoke critically about Hogan again.
Hart’s autobiography, on the other hand, praises Hogan for acting as a sounding board and sympathetic buddy in the aftermath of his brother Owen Hart’s death in May 1999. Since WWE days, the two have been in a real-life feud. They may get along in the future, but for the time being, they are bitter.
