WWE Hall of Famer and pro wrestling legend Bret Hart recently revealed which pro wrestler he classes as the best “overall,” besides him of course.

Speaking on CBC Radio, Hart actually named CM Punk as the best overall wrestler in history, showing a huge amount of praise for the returning legend.

Here are the answers that Hart gave to some other questions during the interview:

  • Best Wrestler Beside Himself: CM Punk
  • Favorite Opponent To Work With: Mr. Perfect
  • Favorite Move (Non-Sharpshooter): Front Turnbuckle Bump
  • Favorite Canadian: Owen Hart
  • Favorite Foreign Object: Ring Bell
  • Better Rivalry: Shawn Michaels or Steve Austin: Steve Austin, by a hair
  • Better Arena: Madison Square Garden or Calgary Saddledome: MSG. ‘Calgary was a quiet crowd, always quiet and studios, which was great. They studied me and were big fans of mine, but Madison Square Garden were longtime and educated fans and loved a good wrestler.’
