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. His subsequent run in WCW was far from great, according to many fans. In fact, Tony Schiavone believes Hart’s anger after the Montreal Screwjob ruined his WCW run.

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.

Bret Hart eventually made his way to WCW, but did not get to do much there. His career also ended prematurely after a match against Goldberg, something he still hasn’t let go of. While speaking on the WHW podcast, Tony Schiavone stated that he believes Hart’s anger after the Montreal Screwjob ruined his WCW run.

“I’m pretty sure I am right about this … He was just really pissed off.”


Bret Hart also claimed that punching Vince McMahon was the greatest thing he ever did. Hart also regrets ever going to WCW. That being said, the past cannot be changed and Bret Hart has just accepted that.
