During the series premiere of the new WWE Network original program, Bring It To The Table, which featured WWE's JBL and Paul Heyman with HOT 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg in a roundtable discussion, the former WWE Champion spoke at length about Bret Hart's apparent bitterness regarding a current WWE Superstar and a recent WWE Hall Of Fame inductee.
Regarding the WWE Hall Of Fame induction of former Fabolous Freebirds leader and longtime WWE executive Michael "P.S." Hayes, which was nearly unanimously considered long overdue and then some, "The Hitman's" take on the subject didn't seem to sit well with another Texas veteran.
In addition to the Hart-Hayes discussion, JBL also dusted off the always hot-button issue, Hart's intense criticism of the in-ring style of current WWE Superstar Seth Rollins. According to Hart, "The Architect," whom many of today's WWE Superstars consider among the most-talented in-ring performers in the business right now, has an "unsafe style of working." Hart has pointed to matches involving Rollins that have resulted in wrestlers such as Sting and John Cena getting injured as evidence to support his claim. JBL, however, took the opposing view.
In wrapping up the discussion about Hart, JBL spoke about the fashion in which Hart's career ended (suffering a concussion from a stiff kick during a match in WCW with Bill Goldberg) and shared his belief that "The Hitman" should choose to focus on the many positive aspects of his career as opposed to taking the "glass is half-empty" viewpoint.
Episode one of the new WWE original series, "Bring It To The Table," featuring JBL, Paul Heyman and Peter Rosenberg is available now via On Demand viewing on the WWE Network.
