Bret Hart has started a new podcast on the WrestleZone Radio network and the WWE Hall of Famer is not holding back.
Speaking in the second ever installment of 'The Sharpshooter Show', Hart got onto the topic of Hulk Hogan and his current legal situation that is being paraded through the media over the past week or so.
Hart said that while Hogan may have a good case against Gawker, a lot of his fans may never be able to look past his racist comments caught on tape.

"All of the stuff that he said came right out of his own mouth and was his own words. It did a lot of harm to his image. It cost him his relationship with the WWE," Hart said.
"Probably for a lot of fans, especially black fans, I think they really saw a side of him that they’ll never really bond with again. Maybe rightfully so."
"As soon as I saw all that stuff happen I was like, “Wow! How could he make that kind of mistake?” When you’ve got friends like that Bubba guy that would actually tape you doing all these things and then try to sell those tapes," Hart went on to add.
Hogan the Slimeball
This is where Hart would go on to call Hogan - and the people that he hangs around with - slimeballs.
"It sounds like a bunch of slimy people. Hogan is a slimeball and it seems like the kinds of people he hangs out with are slimeballs."
"Everybody got messy. Everybody got dirty out of that thing. If he makes a lot of money on it, I dunno, I can’t put a price tag on integrity and reputation. You’d never catch Bret Hart saying the things Hulk Hogan said," he added.
Hogan is currently embattled in a civil suit with Gawker Media.
The former WWE and WCW superstar has taken the company to court after they released a snippet of a sex tape that was filmed of Hogan having relations with the wife of one of his friends.
Hogan is seeking $100 million for alleged invasion of privacy, negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress from the publication of said video. In the video, he is captured making several comments that are racist in nature that caused him to be erased from WWE history.
