Bret Hart refused to lose to Shawn Michaels in the 1997 Survivor Series in Montreal. That moment, known as the Montreal Screwjob, lives on in the history of pop culture at this point. There was another man who Hart refused to put in, and he was also an honest legend.
In time, Something to contend with Bruce Prichard, Gerald Briscoe told a story he had never heard before. Bret Hart refused to hire The Undertaker in Bahrain because there were too many Canadian soldiers.
When The Undertaker finally lost to Hart, he agreed to win. Bret Hart then wanted to put the sharpshooter in the taker, but it was discontinued. Hitman was going to pin Taker because there was no way to submit to Dead Man.
“We’re in Bahrain,” Briscoe said. “It’s a little bit out of Saudi Arabia. We’re out there. It’s probably the same year. We had a tournament. It was the main event for Brett and The Undertaker. I’m thinking, we’re in the middle of nowhere. I asked Brett, ‘Why? It’s The Undertaker.’ There were a few Canadian soldiers, but most of them were indigenous people, and there were no huge maple flags flying around. Of course, I made my phone call to Vince, and Vince said, ‘Get the match in the ring.’
I have never told this story before. Vince said to speak with Taker. Get the match in the ring. Do what you need to do, but get it in the ring. It’s the last night of the trip, come out of hell and come home. Then we deal with it. I tell Taker what’s going on. He said, ‘Don’t they want me to leave the title?’ I said, ‘No, he doesn’t want to leave it. There are so many Canadians here. ‘ Taker looked at me with a look of shock with his piercing eyes that scared me to the bone. I said, ‘Well, what do you want to do? He said, ‘Hell with this. I’ll put him up. That’s a professional who’s a taker. I told Brett he would put you on. He said, ‘Well, I don’t have to pin him. I could put a Sharp shooter on him. I said, ‘Well you’re not going to put a sharpshooter on him. You’re going to pin him. So we devised a match for VKM. That was my first example with Brett.
We’ll have to see if Bret Hart has his own version of the story. Clearly, they had plenty against the Canadiens. Fortunately, The Undertaker was a professional and knew what to do for business improvement.
