Bret Hart is a WWE Hall of Famer and his in-ring skills earned him all the fame and recognition a pro wrestler would ever want. However, he truly changed after what transpired during The Montreal Screwjob. In fact, he isn’t a fan of WWE”s narrative following the incident.

The Montreal Screwjob remains one of the most controversial incidents in pro wrestling history, as it is still talked about to this very day. This is largely due to everything that transpired backstage after the incident.

While speaking to The Ringer, Bret Hart talked about WWE’s false narrative when it came to how they perceived themselves as justified, following The Montreal Screwjob. Hart made it clear that he wasn’t a fan of this narrative whatsoever.

“Vince was the one that was dishonest and lying to me and setting me up and playing games,” Hart said. “If you watched that A&E special, you’ll notice that they still try to lie and pretend that they were somehow in the right or they did the right thing. That I was unprofessional and I should have just done as I was told. I’d never refused in my whole life, ever, to lose to another wrestler. Never mattered to me. It doesn’t matter to me now. I never refused. And it wasn’t because I was in Canada or anything like that. I lost many matches in Canada. It was just personal pride between two wrestlers.”


Bret Hart also claimed that punching Vince McMahon was the greatest thing he ever did. Hart and Vince McMahon are on much better terms now, but Hart will never forget what McMahon did to him in the first place no matter what.
