For more than 20 years, the story still tells many aspects.

In a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, the legend of the WWE Hall of Fame and longtime WWE producer Sgt. Slaughter talked about what happens during the infamous Montreal Screwjob in the WWE Survivor Series 1997 between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in Montreal.

Below are some of the highlights of the interview where he goes into more detail on this topic.

About what he thought would happen: “We were all planning for Bret Hart to leave. It’s time for him to drop the title, and Vince wanted Shawn Michaels to have it. Brett said,” No way. I haven’t given him that. Drop it on shamrock with RAW. “Vince said,” No, I want Shawn to drop it, it’s my company. “I was thinking. When we arrived at the production meeting in Montreal, as far as I know, Sean and Brett intended to play a match with no winners or no one to win due to disqualification. I can’t remember what it was, but Brett kept the title. We were five minutes from the match and Vince was standing there with a cup of coffee. He said to me, “Surge, you’re a commissioner. You’re coming to the ringside with me.” I stood right next to Vince, sticking out my boobs, strolling there, sitting and watching the game. started. “

About not knowing what will happen: “Suddenly Sean went into the sharpshooter and referee Earl Hebner shouted,” Ring the bell, ring the bell, ring the bell. ” I thought, “What the hell is going on?” The bell began to ring and Vince walked to grab the title and push it against Sean. Sean looked down at us and shouted, “It’s not like this, it’s not like this.” Vince said, “Shut up f–k. Take that title and take out f–k from here.” Brett was standing now, he knew he was screwed in, And he just had this look on his face. Brett looked at Vince and said, “You’re a bad mother-r.” Vince put out his arms like “Hey, you didn’t give me a choice,” and Brett took the big hooker. , Spit on Vince’s face and hit his eyes directly. I remember Vince wiping it off and telling me. Alright, let’s go. ‘I said, “I’m going to wait, I’m going to hang out here and see what happens.” “

About who he thinks he knew in advance: “Kevin Dunn was on the truck — he knew — and Brisco knew about it. It was the only people I’ve ever heard of. Pat Patterson I don’t even know which of Bruce Prichard and Bruce Prichard knows, because Vince didn’t want anyone to know, so it didn’t come out. For years, Undertaker was in the changing room. I’ve heard that he took care of everything, and Sean said, “I knew everything. I knew everything about it.” What I saw was Did not show me that he knew nothing about it because he was scared to death, and the way he reacted in the ring was “I don’t like this, I don’t like this” Vince said, “Get it,’Kingbelt’ and’Get fk out of here'” made me believe that Sean didn’t know anything. The hunter knew nothing — he wasn’t even close to Vince at the time. I hear that the hunter knew about it and Bruce knew about it, but I don’t believe it. I saw it go down from the ringside, in the dressing room, and then. Many others are a bit fictitious. That’s my view, that’s what I saw, and what I believe happened. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! “
