Bert Hart insists he doesn't hate Seth Rollins - he wants to help him

If there is one man that always has an opinion about the wrestling business, even in retirement, it's Bret Hart.

One of the things The Hitman prided himself on during his in-ring career was the fact that he never injured another wrestler.

Ironically, his career would come to a close as a result of an errant kick from a still relatively green Bill Goldberg in WCW.

However, he has heavily criticised WWE superstar Seth Rollins in the past for breaking John Cena's nose, retiring Sting and now, putting Finn Balor on the shelf.

His eldest brother, Smith, went on a Facebook rant last week calling for the WWE to stop using Rollins.

But, during an appearance on Booker T's podcast, 'Heated Conversations with Booker T', the 59-year-old former seven-time world champion insisted that rant did not speak for how he feels about Rollins.

In fact, he wants to help him.

"Actually, I'm a big fan of Seth Rollins. I mean, it sounds like I've been a little hard on him the last few months, but I'm trying to make a point to make him a better wrestler, to live up to what I expect out of him. And we're in this business.

"It's not about hurting people, and, too often, people misunderstand my point, and, maybe, including him. Now, he thinks I've got a hard on for him, or I'm out to get him, or out to make him sound bad. I'm not. I love his wrestling and I like him as a person.

"He's always a respectful guy and I know he's trying his hardest." Hart continued, "I hope Seth Rollins becomes the safest, best wrestler in the world. And I wish him all the luck in the world. And I'm not trying to pick on him. I'm just trying to remind him that it's not about hurting guys. That doesn't make you a good wrestler. It makes you a really lousy wrestler."
