I think the reason nobody is talking about it is because most of the show was about the screw job which has been talked about at nauseum for years. I groaned when Austin got right went right into that because I don't give a crap about it as I know everything about what happened. I thought them talking about their WM 13 match was somewhat interesting but overall I was really disappointed by it. Wish it was more like the Undertaker interview where they went more in depth about his beginnings and how he got involved in the business and the thought process he had in developing his character. Bret is usually a very good interview in that he's very well spoken and has a good memory for the most part but they really didn't take advantage of it all.

I enjoyed the episode for what it was. I’d like another one though where they talk more about the rest of Bret’s career, rather than focusing on the couple of years they were together in the WWF. And damn, Bret doesn’t paint Goldberg in a good light.
I like Bret, but I wonder how different his career would be seen if, when Shawn said the dickish bit about not doing the same for him, if Bret remembered, "I'm leaving, what the f*** does it matter, anyway? I'm about to got to WCW to an enormous pay raise for less work", and just stomached it, like he frankly probably should have done.
WWF wasn't his problem anymore, so who gives a shit if Shawn would do the same for him? What does it matter if Shawn snubbed him? They already fist-fought prior to this, with Bret tearing out some Shawn's hair and beating the shit out of him. Did he think HBK was going to just suddenly think, "What a guy Bret is, thanks champ!" ?

I don't get it. At all. It's kind of a small horse, I mean what am I missing? Am I crazy?

Honestly it was my least favorite of the 3 I've watched so far (Undertaker, Big Show & Bret's) In part because the Montreal story has been told to death, in part because what Bret said here varied a bit from what he said on Dark Side of the Ring & in part because there was so much stuff they could have gotten into that they didn't. Stampede stories, Early WWE days, The Hart family. I liked the two of them going over the Wrestlemania 13 match together. The rest just seemed like a rehash.
