The Montreal Screwjob is without a doubt one of the most infamous events in the history of professional wrestling, and people have been talking about it for decades.
The Undertaker recently discussed the Montreal Screwjob on the Bill Simmons Podcast, and he admitted that he was pissed Vince McMahon didn’t get him involved.
“I was pissed. I was pissed about the whole thing because I felt like there, I possibly could’ve been used to get what we needed. Take Shawn out of this, let me do it, and then I’ll do business on the other side, and I think Bret probably would’ve went for that. There was such disdain at that time between the two of them, and Bret was leaving. But I was just kind of, at that point I was like, if … it’s (McMahon’s) company and he did what he thought was best, but I was like, ‘Dude, I think I could’ve helped this whole thing out. I’m right here and you know I’m gonna do business.’ But it happened, and I was real pissed.”
The Undertaker went on to say that he was supposed to show up at Raw by noon the next day, but he didn’t show up until 5 PM. Taker wanted to confront Vince McMahon about the Montreal Screwjob, but he made it a point to calm down first.
“‘If this kind of s–t happens again, you’ve got to involve me here, because it doesn’t have to go down like this. And he agreed. I guess it all worked out. It was sad. I’m really tight with Bret. Bret could’ve done some things differently; Shawn could’ve done things differently; Vince could’ve done things differently. But … that’s one of the great wrestling stories of that era and that decade, the Montreal Screwjob.”
