Taz informs that he watched the WWE documentary ‘Wrestling with Shadows’ last night. It had been a long time since he watched it, and he wanted to re-watch it now from a different perspective. The first thing he noticed is that with all the cameras backstage, it’s obvious WWE was in business with this film crew. Either this was all a work, or this film crew was extremely lucky to be taping on that night.
He says that some of the shots with Bret Hart talking to his wife at their dinner table felt like a work. Taz was also very surprised by Pat Patterson’s involvement in this documentary because he’s a very old school guy. The conversation in the arena after the match also seemed strange to Taz because apparently Bret was wearing a wire, but why would he do that without Vince knowing? There could have been lawsuits stemming from that and frankly, it didn’t make any sense.
The infamous spit from Bret to McMahon on the outside of the ring also looks somewhat fishy to Taz. McMahon was in the perfect place, with all the cameras in position and capturing the perfect angle of the drama that was unfolding.
Taz says that he always had a good relationship with Earl Hebner and he would often tease Hebner, saying the Montreal Screwjob was a work. Hebner always refuted those suggestions, saying as far as he knew the entire thing was a shoot.
