Bret Hart is undeniably one of the best there is, one of the best there was, and one of the best there ever will be in the land of professional wrestling. This makes it that much more shocking to learn AEW turned him down for a role in their organization. More on this story, below.

AEW Denies Bret Hart A Role In Promotion

The WWE Hall of Famer is more than qualified to help the AEW talent of today. Brian R. Solomon, wrestling writer, recently revealed something shocking on Twitter about the iconic wrestler and All Elite Wrestling after news of Orange Cassidy’s producer role hit.

According to Solomon in a tweet, loves OC and his work. Still, he questioned why veterans by the likes of Billy Gunn, Jake Roberts, Arn Anderson, Tazz, Christian Cage, Dustin Rhodes, Sting, Jake Roberts, and Chris Jericho aren’t being used as road agents.

He goes on to reveal that he recently interviewed the Hitman, and was told he offered to be an agent for AEW. With that being said, they refused it, wanting to bring him in as a manager like Jake Roberts, Arn, and Tully.

Brian goes on to question why they would do this. After all, a legend like The Hitman could create a powerful impact in this job and positively influence talent.

Bret Hart’s Relationship With All Elite

In 2019, the HOFer made an appearance on AEW’s first-ever pay-per-view (PPV), Double or Nothing. It was then that he presented the first AEW World Title.

However, he has yet to participate in any other AEW events since. Still, in 2022, the company did launch the Owen Hart Tournaments, which pays tribute to the Hitman’s late younger brother.

Will he ever have a role with AEW? Never say never in the land of professional wrestling.
