Exactly what Owen Hart told his brother Bret after the infamous ‘Montreal Screwjob’

Bret Hart and Martha HartMartha Hart told VICE during the latest ‘Dark Side Of The Ring’ episode exactly what Owen Hart told his brother Bret after the infamous ‘Montreal Screwjob’.

 

According to Martha, Owen tried to calm his sibling by saying that professional wrestling really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. The important thing was that Bret still had his health, a healthy wedge of money in the bank and his family back home.

That’s…really grounded.

Bret was ready to kick ass after being legitimately screwed out of the WWF Title by Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels and others at the 1997 Survivor Series.

Sensing his bro was about to land himself in serious trouble, Owen did everything in his power to talk Bret down and make sure he didn’t do anything too stupid.

WWE’s own footage of the incident has always shown Owen Hart conversing with Bret in-ring, but there was never any word on what was actually said. Thanks to Martha, who asked her husband what he’d been saying, wrestling fans now know that Owen was trying to put everything into perspective for the Harts.

What a guy.
