Alex Marvez conducted a telephone interview and transcribed it in his syndicated column. Below are the highlights:
"Some people feel it wasn't the right thing for me to go back. But there's only one person in Bret 'The Hitman' Hart's shoes and it's me ... This is a lot of fun for me. It sure beats shoveling snow."
"I'll never put on the performance I want to have, but I'll be able to do enough to entertain and give a good show," said Hart. "I'm very careful about what I do and allow myself to do and what can be done to me. WWE has gone through great effort to ensure all that and make sure I'm comfortable with everything.
"I don't want to go out there in a wheelchair like (Hulk) Hogan. I know people watching me are saying, 'He's not exactly a cheetah out there.' But at same time I do remember being in a wheelchair when I had my stroke. The thought of doing what I'm doing right now is beyond everything I imagined."
"Vince is just as focused and involved as I remember him ever being," Hart said. "This whole (storyline) seems to have lit a fire under him. He's very competitive.
"My guess is TNA and Hogan can't be much of a factor, but Vince doesn't like anyone messing around on his turf. He doesn't want this to become any kind of WCW rivalry like before. He wants to be king."
"When I came back, I didn't know if the whole thing with Shawn would erupt again," Hart said. "The truth is, Shawn has been real good with the whole thing. You can tell this is a weight lifted off his back, my back and I think even Vince to a certain degree. It feels like a new start."
"I'm trying to turn a negative into a positive," Hart said. "I think this is good for wrestling fans. I know for a lot people this whole thing seems quite real. If I can deliver realism in today's wrestling, I'll think I've done a good job."
