Bret Hart: “The Undertaker Spreading False Story About Infamous Montreal Screwjob”

On his new podcast, Bret Hart disputed a claim made by The Undertaker regarding the behind-the-scenes knockout punch that “The Hitman” landed on longtime WWE Chairman Vince McMahon after the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” played out at the WWE Survivor Series 1997 pay-per-view.

 

According to WWE legend The Undertaker, McMahon essentially offered Hart a “free shot” when the two confronted each other backstage immediately after everything went down the way it did in front of thousands of WWE fans at the close of the annual WWE Survivor Series PPV.

Bret Hart doesn’t recall that being the case, and during a recent installment of his new show, “Confessions Of The Hitman,” which is available at BretHart.com, “The Hitman” took some time out to explain things how he remembers them.

“The Undertaker had a take on it,” Hart began when addressing the version told by “The Deadman” recently.

“His take on it a few months ago – and they always say stuff like, ‘Vince probably said before he walked in that he was going to let me take a shot at him.’

I don’t remember that ever happening and I don’t remember Vince saying anything like that to me in my dressing room that he’s going to let me take one shot at him.”

He continued, “There was no one shot [offer]. I took my own shot. I doubt that’s the case. [McMahon] never saw it coming. I think I knew Vince pretty well, especially at the time.

What really was happening, I think, was a case of Vince trying to save face with his talent. I don’t know if he expected there to be such an uproar.

There was a real uproar with the wrestlers and the talent where they were probably wondering how many wrestlers were going to show up in the dressing room the next day. That kind of thing.”

The two-time WWE Hall Of Fame legend would continue, further explaining how he assumed McMahon thought things would play out.

“So, it was a grandstand moment for him to confront me in the dressing room and sort of look to my better nature. I’m a pretty easy going guy.

I think Vince gambled that I was going to take the high road and say a few words to him, and then I would walk out or grab my stuff, and leave the dressing room, and that would be the end of it, and he could say, ‘at least I confronted him.’”

As fate would have it, obviously things didn’t end in such a civil manner, as legend has it, Hart decked McMahon with a brutal uppercut that not only knocked out the WWE Chairman, but played an assist in him injuring his ankle on the way down.

This was captured in the popular “Beyond The Mat” documentary, as the film caught the moments that immediately following the behind-closed-doors scuffle between Hart and McMahon, showing Vince with a dejected look on his face limping away from the dressing room where everything went down, all-the-while the director of the documentary is heard in the background praying that no one notices him filming the whole ordeal.

Damn … according to @BretHart, #WWE legend @Undertaker is spreading a false story about what REALLY went down backstage IMMEDIATELY after the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” took place
