The staff at WWE.com released an article examining eight “urban legends” within its annals of history. Curiously, one of the topics profiled was the legend of Bret Hart being secretly in-the-know about the events surrounding the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” at the 1997 Survivor Series, a scenario profiled extensively in the new two-disc DVD set “The Montreal Theory”, which was released in early April of this year at MontrealTheory.com.
Could Bret have been secretly in on the Montreal Screwjob? We set out to get theories of some of the industry’s most well-known personalities in conjunction with the release of “The Montreal Theory”, a 2-disc investigative shoot-style documentary that examines that very question from every angle possible, with a list of compelling thought-provoking reasoning, and a very educated panel of wrestling insiders & legends.
This week, we hear from former ECW World Champion Justin Credible (now known as PJ Polaco) who, as an unofficial member of wrestling’s infamous “Kliq”, has a close understanding of some of the minds involved in Montreal.

It’s the most controversial and talked-about in-ring moment in pro wrestling history – one “screwjob” on November 9, 1997 changed the industry forever… but do we really know the whole story? In a business built on deception, why are we taking such a controversial topic at face value and not asking any questions about the numerous things that may not quite add up? Is it impossible to think Bret Hart may have been a co-conspirator in the “Screwjob” – perhaps even secretly to everyone but Vince himself. The huge WCW contract… financial security for his family… twice the days off of his WWF schedule… and a scenario that would have painted him as a sympathetic, heroic babyface standing up to the evil establishment. At the time, Bret had every reason to gain from the incident, but could he have been involved? We ask that question in “The Montreal Theory”, available on DVD for the first time Apriul 6 & 7 at Wrestlecon in Secaucus, NJ.

Editor’s note: I highly recommend this book because it is well-organized, well-written, and presented in a way that is fun to read. The book is a reference manual that covers all the drama, intrigue, and personalities of the wrestlers who passed through Montreal. I learned a lot about wrestling that I didn’t know before.
“Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most complete book ever written on pro wrestling in Montreal.” — Gino Brito
The proving ground for some of the biggest names in wrestling — including Andre the Giant, Abdullah the Butcher, and Mad Dog Vachon — Montreal was also the site of the first midget battle ever and made famous worldwide for the Survivor Series screw job. Mad Dogs, Midgets and Screw Jobs: The Untold Story of How Montreal Shaped the World of Wrestling (ECW Press, February 2013) is the ultimate guide to Montreal’s legendary place in professional wrestling history.
