Former WWE Star Thinks Vince McMahon’s Montreal Screwjob Was Right 2023

Former WWE superstar Jacques Rougeau alias The Mountie believes that Vince McMahon did the right thing when he rang the bell during Bret Hart’s WWE Title match against Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series 1997.

According to legend, Bret Hart had creative control over the remainder of his WWE career before joining WCW. Since Shawn Michaels told Bret that he would never put Bret over, Bret refused to put Shawn over clean in Bret’s home country of Canada, as the Survivor Series was taking place in Montreal, and Bret was from Canada.

Bret had to return the belt honorably after all the possibilities, championships, and exposure.

The documentary “Wrestling With Shadows” revealed that Bret Hart and Vince McMahon agreed to a “schmozz” denouement, in which Bret’s allies Owen Hart, The British Bulldog, and Jim Neidhart would interfere, resulting in a disqualification.

Instead, when Shawn attempted a Sharpshooter (Bret’s move), Vince rang the bell, and Bret was “screwed” out of the championship.

From 1986 to 1994, Jacques Rougeau, who was portrayed as being from Montreal, worked for WWE. In 1992, he defeated Bret Hart as The Mountie to win the Intercontinental Championship. This two-day reign only occurred because “Rowdy” Roddy Piper defeated The Mountie for the IC Title, resulting in Bret’s victory over Piper at WrestleMania 8.

While Jacque Rougeau was employed by WCW during the 1997 Montreal Screwjob, he endorses Vince McMahon’s actions. Here is what Rougeau said about it to Wrestlingnewsco.
