Bret Hart is upset with a new ad campaign launched by the CBC booster club to get the Canadian broadcaster more money. The ads, dubbed Stop the CBC Smackdown, feature pro wrestling spoofs.
“They are always portrayed imbeciles, dimwits with no brains at all, and that’s a disappointment, because a lot of us out there like Jesse Ventura, Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels and myself who are quite well-read, intelligent people,” Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart told QMI Agency. “We are some of the hardest working actors and athletes in the world. Nobody has a schedule like wrestlers, and with CBC, someone like Vince McMahon might be the answer to their prayers, they might start making some money.”
