There have been many intriguing incidents in the past involving Vince McMahon using his authority. Only a few match the fame that surrounds Montreal Screwjob.
The Montreal Screwjob remains one of the most controversial events in WWE history. It happened in the Survivor Series 1997, in the middle of a game Sean Michaels և: Brett HartVince McMahon ordered referee Earl Hebner to ring the bell to beat Michaels, although the action in the ring was not decisive.
In a recent A&E biography of Brett Hart, Vince McMahon opened up to the Montreal Screwjob and shared his thoughts on the incident.
“I did not want him to go to WCW with our championship. So Brett’s request was, ‘Okay, let’s give this championship back to someone in WWE where he belongs,’ և it didn’t happen, so I had to do what I had to do.
“It is no different than one of the actors in a TV series, who in the end refuses to die or refuses to do so-called work. What are you doing:
“When the Montreal Screwdriver, as you call it, happened, I wanted to make sure Brett saw me on the edge of the ring, to know that what I did was right, at least from my point of view. He spits really well [chuckles]”I’m sorry to say.” Vince McMahon added: “I could hide, I could not get out of the ring at all, I could get out of the building, I could do a lot of things. [Bret] gave me one [punch]”Straight to the temple on the left.”
Later Brett Hart և Vince McMahon reconciled
After the 1997 Survivor Series, Brett Hart went to WCW, where he fought for the next few years. There were strong feelings among Winnie the Pooh after Montreal Screwjob and Hart had no plans to return to WWE for some time.
Hart ended his full-time wrestling career at WCW. But in the mid-2000s, McMahon’s Hart set aside their differences and decided to move past Montreal’s Screwdriver.
Brett and Vince even worked on a plot line in their past rivalry at WrestleMania 26, where Brett won the No Holds Barred game against Mr. McMahon.
Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice. Once in 2006 as a solo wrestler, the second time in 2019 with The Hart Foundation.
