In one of the recent talk between Bret Hart and Sports Illustrated, a lot of topics within the realm of pro-wrestling were discussed but one of the topics that seem interesting was The Undertaker’s involvement in the events after the famous Montreal Screwjob between Hart, Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon.
Bret Hart who was the leader of the locker room before leaving the WWE for WCW, told Sports Illustrated that he wrote to The Undertaker after joining the WCW stating in the letter that the Undertaker should take over as the leader of the locker room since Hart was no longer with the WWE.
Just as a reminder, the Montreal Screwjob took place during the main event of the 1997 Survivor Series where Michaels and Hart were competing for the WWE Championship.

However, after the bell rang, everyone in the ring had this obvious look on their faces and soon enough Bret had an argument with Vince McMahon where he spat on Vince’s face.
After the show went off the air, Hart noted that The Undertaker was pounding on Vince’s door demanding answers for what just happened. Taker was one of the few people on the roster that Vince would actually listen to.
In the end ‘Taker took Hart’s advice and became the leader of the locker room for a long time. He would listen to any issues the other wrestlers would have and then he could talk to Vince about it.
However, Hart retired from the professional wrestling business as at 2000 though continues to appear sporadically on WWE programming.
With the way that WrestleMania 33 ended, the next logical step for The Undertaker could be a WWE Hall Of Fame induction in New Orleans next year.
