The Undertaker On The Montreal Screwjob
It has been 22 years since the Montreal Screwjob, but the incident remains as one of the foremost examples of a time when things went wrong for WWE and everyone concerned.
The Undertaker revealed on a recent appearance on The Bill Simmons podcast that he was angry with how the entire thing was handled. He said that he was willing to be involved in a match with Bret Hart before the latter left for WCW. He said he would have removed Shawn from that equation and wrestled Hart instead, so that Hart would drop the title to him, thereby solving the whole mess.
“I was pissed about the whole thing because I felt like there, I possibly could’ve been used to get what we needed. Take Shawn out of this, let me do it, and then I’ll do business on the other side, and I think Bret probably would’ve went for that. There was such disdain at that time between the two of them, and Bret was leaving. But I was just kind of, at that point, I was like, if… it’s (McMahon’s) company and he did what he thought was best, but I was like, ‘Dude, I think I could’ve helped this whole thing out. I’m right here and you know I’m gonna do business.’ But it happened, and I was real pissed.”
