Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels met in the ring at the 1997 Survivor Series. Because Bret was leaving the company and because Bret wouldn't agree to lose to Shawn Michaels in Montreal, Vince McMahon decided to end the match early and award the title to HBK. Known now as "The Montreal Screwjob", Survivor Series 97 went down in history as one of the most intriguing nights in WWF / WWE history where Bret Hart got screwed by Vince McMahon.
One week after the Montreal incident, Jim Ross interviewed Vince McMahon. The interview was shown on WWF Raw, and the interview has now become known as the "Bret Screwed Bret" interview. In a rare example of Vince McMahon pulling back the curtain, the Chairman tried to clear his name while giving his side of the story. McMahon said that neither he, the referee nor Shawn Michaels screwed Bret Hart, Bret had done that himself.
This video looks at the entire interview that aired on the 17th of November 1997. We also look at each comment Vince McMahon gave during his sitdown with Jim Ross to see if Vince was being honest, or if Vince was doing some damage control.
00:00 - What was the "Montreal Screwjob?"
04:16 - Vince says "Bret Screwed Bret"
09:39 - Vince comments on Bret's WCW deal
14:50 - How Survivor Series 1997 should've ended

    I wonder if Brett would have spit on/ punched Vince, and quit., if there was no WCW to go to... Messed up what happened I suppose, but I still have fan preference for HBK!

    Both sides made mistakes. I disagree with Bret not dropping the belt but I disagree with Vince for handling it the way he did. Both screwed up in different ways.

    Bret would have folded Vince into a pretzel if there was a proper shoot fight between the two of them. Bret came through from the dungeon and that is not something to be taken lightly.

    Bret was haggling for more money and that’s his right, but there is no way that I would have paid that for Bret either. I enjoyed watching Bret but I don’t think that you build much excitement around him as your top guy. WCW was just dumb to pay him that much, but their business model at the time was to take all of WWF’s talent and win that way. Granted, both companies thought this was the way to go for a time but after disasters like Lex Luger and others, Vince changed tactics and I think time has proven that Vince had the better financial plan.

    Bret made stone colds career on his way out imo. At that point most fans had no idea vince was "the boss", (well not until bret outed him earlier that year with all his promos about how he was getting screwed , at least). As much as i liked stone cold at the time, when he wrestled brett he meant nothing to me. Without bret vince would have still been the geek announcer and prob wouldnt of had any use for the juice. Vince owes so much to bret for setting off a chain reaction that catapulted stone cold, the rock, triple H and all the other wrestlers of the attitude era into legends ...period. And he also made vince the greatest villain in wwf/wwe history, i mean i still hate that sob no matter how old he is in 2021. The only time brett screwed brett, was when owens wife was offered a huge amount of millions for owens death and bret had told her to hold out for more. In the end i think she got only 18mil.

    I'm not sure where you were going with the ratings comment, IMO, 97 WWF was better than 97 WCW. Hands down! I watched both in real-time as a kid have gone back and rewatched them as an adult and still 97 WWF is better. In-ring maybe not, maybe. But as a show WWF all the way.

    I seem to remember Cornette just casually letting it slip that the Montreal screwjob was his idea. He said he got fed up of all the meetings about what to do about Bret and the title, so he just snapped and told Vince how he could get the belt from Bret without Bret's consent. McMahon always gets the blame, which I guess is somewhat fair because he had to greenlight it, but Cornette was the mastermind.

    Bret was always a selfish little bitch, he had to drop the belt and dropping it at the pay per view only makes the best sense. He should have let go of his ego just a little bit and realized he had no other option. Even Taker lost his cool on Bret during a meeting and told him it wasn’t always about Bret.

    Im a huge bret hart fan as a performer. But maybe he should have been more open minded. I mean losing to canada ... but the undertaker lost 2 wrestlemanias ! I think the screwjob was totally necessary , because thank to this insident mick foley had his spot in the business . Thanks to him and michaels being pop star wrestlers , their ego was so big that they needed a performer like foley in the 97. Its like the broken neck , if werent for that they wouldnt have needed the rock to be as big as he was. And austin got the huge pop. In this crazy business things goes so weird everything is uncertain. Good ol wrestling historys i love it !

    Vince did the right thing as a business man. Brett screwed Brett. Vince had to protect his image. Bischoff would have went on Nitro the next night and screamed from the top of this lungs that he signed the WWF champion. It wasn’t that Vince didn’t trust Brett, Vince didn’t trust Bischoff.

    To me, the screwjob and subsequent "Bret screwed Bret" interview, was absolutely pivotal in turning the momentum back in the favour of the WWF. No screwjob, no Mr McMahon, no Austin vs McMahon.. and Austin vs McMahon was absolutely HUGE. I don't think there is a more important or influential rivalry in their history of wrestling. IMO, their rivalry saved the company. It's unfortunate that Bret Hart wasn't with the WWF during the best years in wrestling history, but as I said before, without the screwjob, WCW may have won the "war". And for that, Bret Hart should always be remembered as The Best There Is.. The Best There Was.. and The Best There Ever Will Be!!

    I do agree that Bret should have lost on the way out but it didn’t need to be at Survivor Series and even if it had to be, it didn’t need to be Shawn Michaels. There were so many ways this could have gone down. Vince is so desperate to make himself feel and look like the good guy that he is painting Bret as this selfish man even though he has done a lot of things for the company. He lost to Shawn a year and a half previous, he was even willing to lose to him again until Shawn opened his big mouth and insulted him. Hell, Bret lost the belt at Wrestlemania 9 in order for Hogan to get it before he left. The man was willing to do business, he just got tired of being pushed around by people who always got their way. Some can say that Bret should have just sucked it up and lost to him but when someone insults you like that and he’s going to be rewarded for something that he has no respect for, of course Bret was going to refuse to lose to him. The bastard was selfish and being an ass. Vince is the real villain! He’s chasing off an honest superstar that people want to see, rewarding an asshole who has no respect for anyone, decides to screw someone over because he can’t have his way for the billionth time, and wants to appear as the good guy by saying he had no choice when he had ton of choices.

    Great video. Here's my comments, including some revelations, and differences of opinion. 1-Shawn told Bret he wouldn't job to him, plus Shawn very often forfeited a belt instead of getting beaten in the ring. This, plus Bret's creative control made me side with Bret. But you shined the light that HBK lost many times earlier to Bret. So Bret wasn't fully right in Montreal. 2-I disagree that McMahon misjudged the fans in his interview. Vince always loved a wrestler who could generate heat, and he's a smart business man. I think Vince brilliantly judged the fans would hate him in the interview and purposefully did so to become the heel. 3-I think Vince let Bret punch him, for a counter-sue in case Bret sued Vince for the screwjob.

    I have just watched a beautiful biography of Paul Orndorff. In that video he states that the psychology of the match is missing in the matches seen now and this is exactly your point in one of the videos that you mention. I believe it was Bret Hart vs Piper. That the storytelling in the ring is missing from today’s matches. If they want people coming back to wrestling they need people who can bring that art form back.

    What has always bothered me about this speech... is Vince trying to put himself off as a proponent of wrestling's "time honored traditions." What? He had proudly spit on so many time honored traditions throughout the time since he took over. He was in no position to criticize anybody for not being a traditionalist. By stressing this in this speech, he lost his credibility and came off as an extreme hypocrite. There are people that could make that criticism, like Stu Hart or Lou Thesz, but not Vince McMahon. He made a better point of saying that other people jobbed to Bret Hart to make him a superstar, and he owed it to the other wrestlers in the business to job, but by wrapping himself in the mantra of "time honored tradition," he hurt his credibility for the rest of his speech.

    For me there's 2 answers. Bret Hart is RIGHT IF... ... he was willing to drop the title in a match to someone. It may not have to be at Survivor Series, it may not have to be against Shawn, but if he was willing to go out passing the ball to someone else then Bret shouldn't have lost at SS. Bret had creative control and that's that. Bret Hart is WRONG IF... ... he only wanted to forfeit the belt. That is, simply just go on a mic and hand over the belt. In which case, that would be the ONLY time (at least in this context), that an owner of a company should not honor it's employee's contract.

    I’m going to disagree with you about saying if Bret wanted to stay he could’ve found a way. 1) he wasn’t happy creatively. 2) Bret did ask what the plan was for him if he did stay, Vince gave weak answers according to Bret. 3) Bret’s final title run was a lame duck run. Vs The Patriot in one ppv and Patriot and Vader in a flag match in another? Neither of which were the Main event? 4) The One Night Only incident that made him and his family look like Morons. All these lead up to 1 fact... 5) Vince wanted Bret gone. Why? Because he needed money to bring in Tyson.

      @Attie Pollard Bret on his own wasn’t the answer, true. But neither was Shawn. Austin great as a character he was, was greatly helped by competent booking with a relatable top heel. And let’s not forget what Tyson’s appearances did for the WWF. A rarely discussed point for this period as well is if WCW had actually stuck the landing at Starrcade that year.

    Bret should have done what was right for business.. He took being champion too seriously & acted as though he'd actually won it, when the accepted reality is people are given the title.. Now he earned the right to be champion, & this is where it gets murky.. Vince McMahon promoted Bret & gave him the chance to run with the title. Bret was a hit with the crowds & made Vince a lot of money. Vince paid Brets wages & gave him a very good pay packet at that. Vince gave Bret the platform to get such fame, & all he wanted was for Bret to lose in his last match.. it's not as if Vince booked survivor series in Montreal knowing it would be Brets last match with WWE.. so basically, Bret just got the hump about being expected to do what is traditional.. you go out on your back & help another wrestler, in this case, Shawn Michaels. Again, the match wasn't booked with Bret & Shawns real rivalry in mind, it was made in what Vince thought the fans wanted the most, & that was Bret vs Shawn. So what if it was in Canada, American wrestlers lose in America & there home towns all the time. Shawn wouldn't bitch about losing in America, the actual win loss record between them is some like 150-3 (including house shows) in Brets favour, & I'd imagine most of them were in America. Basically Bret is just a spoiled little brat with a complex, & Vince McMahon was put in an impossible situation & he did what he was advised was the only way of getting his title to stay out of Eric Bischoffs bin. Bret screwed Bret.

    Wrong Vince DID NOT do what he had to do.. period..That's a lie.. Vince did what he wanted to do..Vince wanted Bret to put over shawn on his way out. And vince could've had Bret drop the title BEFORE survivor series in america, he could've had the survivor series match switched a 3 way where Bret got pinned by somebody other the shawn. Vince had Options. but he had an idea in his head on what he wanted to see. and that has nothing to do with what's best for business. he gave Bret creative control for his final 30 days. so Vince could've taken the strap off Bret a month prior and that would've been fine.. But Vince did not do what was best for business. he did what he wanted to do.

      ​@Attie Pollard Vince literally agreed to give Bret Creative control in his last 30 days. To give somebody creative control literally means you're accepting their interest might not align with yours.. That's exactly why Vince didn't do what was best for business. He literally agreed to those terms. then Decided not to honor it because he wanted to force bret to have the ending he wanted with Shawn when Bret didn't want to do with business with him to begin with

      @Andy B yeah but how can you even justify that much money for Bert. In a alternative reality do you think Bert could have handled the attitude era in wwf?

      @Attie Pollard i think Bret's deal back in 96/97 was 1.5 million or around that. vince could afford that. he clearly just didnt want him anymore. I think he was getting on his nerves but who knows the real story.

      But $3 million? Even for a billionaire almost close in 1998 like Vince McMahon that's still a lot for one wrestler

    Vince can't complain about Bret being unreasonable when he signed the contact giving Bret creative control in the last 30 days, And he put up with Hogan's and Warrior's demands by that point

    This was very well done. Good job! Its brets fault. You do what your boss says or you get screwed over. However, I think vince could've just had bret drop the title to taker on raw the next night. I think bret and vince are both stubborn as hell and felt like they were losing if they didnt one up the other one. It made a good story though. We're still talking about survivor series 97.

    Lol I don't know about you guys but if I didn't screw someone over, I wouldn't give them any "free shots," especially if they were Bret Hart... That's basically an admission of guilt in my book.

    It needs to be remembered that while Vince couldn't alter the money going to bret to keep him (pay little now with guaranteed more later), he was able to pay for Mike god damn Tyson two months later. So, I call horseshit on the money issue.

    First off Vince screwed Bret, second 1997 Vince has no chance against Bret, third Bret would have done the job for a friend and not a low life like 1997 HBK

    Didn't Vince try to shoot on Angle and took him down? He wanted to do that with Bret in his prime?

    14:45 I always wondered why Bret didn't sue the WWF for breach of contract and his creative control clause. Vince was smart to take that punch.

    Another solid video. I appreciate that you presented both perspectives and really made me think how both Vince and Bret must have seen things throughout the entire ordeal.

    Looking back on it now ,its funny to think that Vince chose Shawn over Bret ,only to have Shawn lose his smile again and leave after the next Wrestlemainia, and then to keep him from going to WCW Vince kept paying him.

    Vince could afford Bret Hart's contract in 97, but Bret Hart wasn't drawing what's he worth.. Vince was trying to get Hulk Hogan back in the WWF/WWE in 97 so Vince claiming that he couldn't afford Bret was total bs.. Besides i Vince f was going through financial problems during that time he wouldn't upgrade Monday Night Raw' set from the Raw letters to The Raw is War set which had an upgrade 3 times in 97
