Bret Hart Reviews WrestleMania 32 Ladder Match, “Bunch Of Stupid Spots”

WWE Hall of Famer and ladder match veteran Bret “The Hitman” Hart had some less than kind words about the WrestleMania 32 WWE Intercontinental Title Ladder Match on his latest podcast.

Hart said of the contest, “It’s just a prop match. That’s all it was. Just a bunch of stupid spots with the ladders where people are hitting each other and doing stupid stuff with the spots. I know there’s a lot of hard bumps in there. I never thought any of it made any sense. There were times when guys were walking up the ladder, climbing up the ladder, like at a snail’s pace waiting for someone to come pull them down. Then of course when Zack Ryder won it he just whips up the ladder like it’s nothing. I was really disappointed with the whole thing.

When I think about what the ladder match means to me and some of the great ladder matches I had, not so much in WWF but up here in Stampede Wrestling with my Dad. I would say it’s easily the best match on the card, really good ladder match but it’s become a farce. I remember when I came to Chief Jay Strongbow years ago when I was in WWF. When I first started I said, “I have this idea for a ladder match and I’d like to talk to Vince about it.” I remember Chief Jay goes, “What is that? A Tennessee Town Killer Match?” I said, “No, it’s a really good idea.” I remember telling him the whole idea and he said, “That’s a Tennessee Town Killer Match.” You know what? That’s what that match I watched at WrestleMania was. It was a Tennessee Town Killer Match.”
