 Montreal Screwjob - Encyclopedia Glossary Meaning Explanation Montreal Screwjob   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Montreal Screwjob is professional wrestling parlance for a genuine, unscripted incident that took place on November 9, 1997, during a match for the World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight title between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in Montreal, Canada.
Hart was deeply aware of the possibility of a last-minute change of plan behind his back, and, fearing a double-cross, he reportedly went as far as asking the match's referee Earl Hebner to swear an oath on his children's lives that he would not participate in such an incident.
A legacy of this incident is that at wrestling shows in Montreal (and to a lesser extent, Canada in general), chants of "You screwed Bret!" will spontaneously arise when key players in the screwjob make their appearences, particularly Hebner and Michaels.
