Eric Bischoff, the former President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), has weighed in on the long-standing debate surrounding Bill Goldberg’s super kick and its alleged role in ending Bret Hart’s wrestling career. Bischoff, known for his unwavering opinions, has questioned the validity of Hart’s claims, insisting that the concussion likely occurred as a result of a pre-existing bump rather than the kick to the head.

Speaking on his podcast “83 Weeks”, Bischoff pointed out that Hart, known for his daredevil style, had a history of taking reckless risks in the ring. “I’m looking at Bret bouncing his head off the concrete or the ring post, whatever it was, and if I had to put my money, I would put it on that concussion occurring on that bump as much or more so than the kick to the head,” he said. By doing so, Bischoff is not trying to dismiss the severity of the incident or downplay Goldberg’s role, but rather highlight an often-overlooked aspect of the story.

Bischoff’s statements have sparked heated debate, with some loyal Bret Hart fans vehemently defending their hero’s account of events. However, the seasoned wrestling executive is simply urging for a more nuanced understanding of the situation. “I’m not saying that to be controversial, I’m not saying that out of disrespect to Bret. I’m just pointing out what I think is something that is at least worthy of discussion if we’re going to keep blaming Bill Goldberg for that concussion.”

For his part, Goldberg has long since moved on from the controversy, preferring to focus on his post-wrestling life. Hart, on the other hand, has continued to harbor resentment towards Goldberg, whom he blames for ending his in-ring career. Time will tell whether the two will ever resolve their differences, but Bischoff’s comments have injected a fresh layer of complexity into an already contentious issue.

Ultimately, the debate surrounding Goldberg’s super kick and its impact on Hart’s career serves as a sobering reminder of the risks involved in professional wrestling. It is a sport that requires a unique blend of skill, athleticism, and bravado, but also carries a high risk of injury. By acknowledging the uncertainties surrounding the situation, Bischoff has sparked a necessary conversation about the realities of pro wrestling, one that may help to dispel some of the lingering tension and animosity between Goldberg and Hart.
