Bret is a weird guy as far as charisma goes- he wasn't bombastic at all. Words never flowed from him the way they did from Flair, Dusty, Savage or Hogan. He couldn't get the crowds to worship him the way other guys did. He stumbled over words at times, and came off self-righteous even as a babyface. But when he cuts promos like THIS, it's like he doesn't need to. Great as those guys are on the mic, they're cartoons. Bret came off REAL- like himself turned up to 10.5 instead of 11. And that gives promos like this so much more impact than if a Rocky or even an Austin had done it. Foley could do it, possibly Arn, but I can't think of too many others who could.

Owen does his part beautifully here, too. Crying and wiping tears from his eyes while Bret talks about their past, growing up together ("Only two people in our family excelled at wrestling, and it was you and me").

And CHRIST- Bret's look of sheer disgust and disdain at 6:00, embracing his family and just vomiting all over the American fans.

This is how you can have shit charisma and still maintain an "8" in Promos/Charisma, at minimum.

Bret is crabby, and constantly talks about how good he is, and the compliments others have given him. But he remains one of the best.

His whining and his skill, neither one is in question.

Heard he was a belt whore (described as such on a site i visted, but not in detail), too, whatever that means.

It's impressive how he can turn any conversation or situation into talking about how good he was

You know they loved him in Europe more than they have ever loved anyone, including their loved ones?

Don't be sad your hero is a whiner. He should have apologized and moved on.

Bret wasn't a whiner! He was just sick of all this GODDAMN INJUSTICE, and the American fans who cheered for degenerates like Steve Austin and that damn Shawn Michaels!

^^^If he had made Austin tap, and not tapped out to his own move with HBK, Bret wouldnt have had any problems.
