On November 9, 1997 in Montreal Quebec, Canada, pro wrestling changed forever when the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” took place. Bret Hart, days before leaving the WWF for rival WCW, refused to lose the WWF Title to Shawn Michaels at the event. As a result, a plan was concocted by Vince McMahon and a select few others to take the title off of Bret by any means necessary, and do what was best for the WWF’s business. That meant scripting a double-disqualification ending to the Bret vs. Shawn Title match, only for Vince to go off-script and demand the match be stopped while Shawn had Bret in Bret’s own submission hold. The claim was Shawn beat Bret by submission, and once he realized what had happened Bret went ballistic, and the rest is history. A TON has been written about this incident over the past fifteen years, but do we really know everything?? This has been analyzed to death every which way by every person possible… except for one scenario… what if Bret was secretly in on it too?
For the first time ever, we’ve assembled a team of experts from every era, company & job title in professional wrestling to debate & discuss an issue so controversial that many have refused to discuss it. There has never been a DVD definitively recapping the 18-month dramatic saga leading up to Montreal blow-by-blow in detail until now!
In Part 1, we’ll go back in time and tell you the entire sordid story as it unfolded and with all the details that have long been presented to us as facts. Locker room fights, contract disputes, politics, egos, and all of the chaos that led us to that fateful November night.
In Part 2, we take that story & turn it upside down. We’ll present new evidence, often overlooked facts, theories & memories from those who studied it, those who watched it unfold, and those who were there live backstage to officially create “The Montreal Theory” – a scenario that introduces the possibility that Bret could have secretly been a part of – or even orchestrator of – everything, and the short and long term benefits that everyone experienced because of it.
Do you think what we’ve been told about Montreal is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Are you a skeptic that thinks there’s more to this story than meets the eye? No matter what your stance is, listen closely to “The Montreal Theory” and form your own conclusions along with our panel!”
