Bret the Hitman Hart is the latest wrestler to pay his respect to The Ultimate Warrior.
The two faced each other back in the WCW days in the ’90s when Warrior teamed with Sting to beat Hart and Hulk Hogan. Hart said in his statement that he saw Warrior over the weekend at WrestleMania 30 and that he wish he had been kinder to him.
“I’m deeply saddened at the sudden passing of Jim Helwig, The Ultimate Warrior. I wish I’d been kinder to him in the last moments that we had this past weekend at WrestleMania 30,” Hart said over Twitter. “We did cross paths once or twice, but we were all so busy. I never went out of my way to see him, but if I could… I’d tell him he looked good. He looked content and he looked like he’d finally found happiness within his children and his wife.
“He never ever harmed me nor did we really work with one another… I wish we had. His final ring promo breaks my heart. I’ve many fond memories of times we shared, only now do they pile up in my head. I’d also tell him that he was right, he never was such a bad guy. My thoughts are with his wife and children. I never thought his time would be so short. I know one thing, I will never forget him.” – Bret
Hart is not the only wrestler to say that Warrior was not such a bad guy. Jake the Snake Roberts, Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash have all paid their respects to the wrestling legend and put aside whatever feuds they may have had.
