Bret Hart criticizes WWE's use of part-timers at WrestleMania 32

WrestleMania 32 is literally days away, and fans couldn't be more excited for some of the matches on the card.

Some of the main clashes on the card include; Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred match, Roman Reigns vs Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in what could also be a No Disqualification match too, and Shane McMahon vs The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match.

However, not everyone is excited for the matches that include the likes of The Game, The Beast, Shane-O-Mac, and The Deadman, who are essentially part-timers. Bret Hart believes having part time wrestlers compete in these matches is unfair on those superstars that are with the company all year round.

He said in a recent interview on The Jobbing Out podcast, according to Wrestling Inc: "A little bit of my issue with Wrestlemania this year is it's not fair that all the wrestlers who are on the road, doing the work, pulling the wagon, that are traveling every day and away from their families and doing the grunt work are in the lower matches.

"Brock Lesnar is the main event, and he's on the road three days a year. Undertaker is on the road three days a year. They can sit at home and train and get ready for these big pay-per-views and make all the money. The Rock, who isn't even a wrestler, he's going to get a pay day. He'll get a pay day more than someone like Dolph Ziggler will make for the whole year.

"Vince McMahon has his kid wrestling against the Undertaker. Triple H is the 1000 time World Champion. There's a lot of nepotism right now in wrestling."

It is an unfair reality that part-timers over the past few years seem to be getting the big headline events at WrestleMania, or even big spots on the card for that matter. The last WrestleMania main event not to have a part-timer taking part was WrestleMania XXVII between The Miz and John Cena, but even then The Rock - who was hosting the show - got involved to begin his two-year rivalry with Cena.

It's easy to understand what Hart is saying, but let's not forget Hart has taken said spot as well, as he competed against Vince McMahon at WrestleMania XXVI after not having a match in the WWE for several years. This was his first match with the company since Survivor Series in 1997 and the famous Montreal Screwjob.

Until the part-timers stop bringing in the money for Mr. McMahon every year at The Showcase of The Immortals, then the company will keep paying them to come and appear on the show in some capacity. It's nice to have them on the show in some role, but WWE should really be giving more spots on the card to those that are there for WWE shows every day of the year.
