There was a segment back in 1997 where Shawn Micheals delivered a ‘Sunny Days’ speech. In this, he indicated that Bret Hart was in a relationship with Sunny and not the family man everyone perceived him to be. Ofcourse, Hart did not take too well to this comment.

Now, Bruce Prichard and Conrad Thompson had a conversation about what went on backstage after The Heartbreak Kid passed the comment on The Hitman.

“People had kind of chosen sides, if you will. People in Shawn’s camp, people in Bret’s camp. I think that Bret and Shawn stirred up both sides. I think they equally take credit for stirring the other one up. And, I don’t think it was appropriate to do on live TV. It was an inside deal. I don’t like doing inside, personal stuff on air and in public. It doesn’t add anything to the product.”

It’s widely known that Shawn and Bret did not like each other. There is no concrete evidence to back-up the claim Michaels’ made back in the day.
