    And what the fuck is #5 about?

    #12 should be #1 without a question. Montreal only gets mentioned so often because it took Bret over 10 years to get over it.

    #38 should be in the top 5.

    What's #40?

    Because Hart kept complaining about it and the wrestling with shadows documentary. Reharshing it was guaranteed to create heat, especially in Canada. You have to admire the tenacity of Hart to make those demands in the first place, especially for someone who continues to bring up tradition.

    I'll never understand the mindset of someone who thinks Hart being bitter about the whole experience for a while somehow makes him worse in the situation than the company that fucked him over. It's like feeling sorry for the News of the World. For the record, Hart was - and this is fucking recorded - agreeable to dropping the title, just not under those circumstances. Something his contract allowed him to do. He still had a month left on his contract to drop the title in the US. And don't come away with tradition bullshit. Tradition in wrestling is wide-ranging enough to include putting over people on the way out, not putting people over on the way out, drug use, dying young, working with concussions and cheating on your wife.

    I believe that was on one of those Shotgun shows which was taking place in a mall. I can't remember who he was wrestling, but HHH was thrown out of the ring and landed at the top of an escalator which carried him all the way downstairs. Something like that anyway.

    You've missed understood me here. Hart is worse in the situation. for being so selfish. His plan was to do a speech and drop it on Raw, which would only benefit himself and the company winning the ratings war, although hindsight indicates that they would've messed it up...

    Hart had already presented several alternatives including dropping the title in the ring. By the time McMahon 'agreed' to Hart's suggestion that you mention (which was one idea of several) he had already committed himself to the screwjob. By that point it was like agreeing to meet your girlfriend's parents for Sunday dinner knowing you're going to dump her on Saturday. You make it sound like Hart refused all along to do anything other than the scenario you described, when that's known to be complete bullshit. Like every Montreal defence of McMahon it only works if you take a couple of facts and ignore everything else.

    I stand corrected. I remember on the documentary he was talking to Stu (I think) about the situation and how all of his ideas were turned down, which makes you wonder why McMahon went for the speech. I guess not dropping it in Canada was due to, among other things like their real life dislike of each other, what happened in London with Bulldog and the European title.

    He said in his book that he had no problem dropping it to Shawn, as Shawn was the next top guy, but that since they had been doing the Canada vs US fued for nearly a year, he felt it was wrong to drop it in Montreal and end the fued there. He did indeed have plenty of scenarios in mind, one of which was losing it on Raw to Austion.

    Losing it on Raw to Austin would have been a bad move IMO. It was set up beautifully for Austin to beat Michaels at Mania. A Raw win (would have been the first ever?) would have taken away from it some what. Perhaps McMahon was against a title change on Raw which is why he wanted it done at the Survivor series. Bret dιbut at the Nitro before Starcade so couldn't drop it at the following PPV (Degeneration X?). Also the incident generated more heat for Shawn. I would like to know what other ideas he had.

    I personally still think Bischoff turning up on Raw and hugging McMahon was a far more shocking moment.

    Yeah, that wouldn't have helped. Nor would Shawn telling Bret to his face that he would never put him over. Bret was a pretty big deal in Canada at the time and I guess it was important to him to maintain his marketability there. Given that his contract gave him reasonable creative control it seems to me pretty fair that he was looking after himself, especially when he had another month where he could have dropped the title to anyone in the US. He did even make the obviously joke offer of dropping the title to Steve Lombardi if Vince wanted. Shawn being such a fucking dick at the time really didn't help the situation. I mean, I think it's even an accepted fact by Shawn himself that he was a complete dick back then. And one of the funniest things about the whole idea that Bret should have just dropped the title to him clean was Shawn's perpetual habit of himself getting out of dropping any titles to anyone who wasn't his buddy.

    One of the interesting things about the Montreal Screwjob today is that I think as the years go on I think it'll become harder and harder for newer fans to ever really understand what the fuss was about, since the landscape is so different and the idea of a guy leaving the company without dropping the belt doesn't really carry much significance. Wins and losses and who is the champion really don't matter like they once did.
