Bret Hart recently spoke about his return to Montreal on Monday and more. Here are the highlights…
On The Montreal Incident & Returning on Monday: "It was a big night," Hart said. "I knew it was going to be, because any time I've gone back to Montreal for anything, it's always been emotional. It was fitting, going full circle. I think it was important to do. I think it was more important than WWE or anyone realized.
I think when they called me it was more to be there for Pat Patterson Appreciation Night than anything else — I love Pat and I'm a big fan of his — but it had more significance to me than that. The Montreal Screwjob was a famous, historical meltdown that in a lot of ways was my finest hour. WWE failed me on that day and buried the knife as far as they could. I think the little fisticuffs that happened afterwards with Vince was my finest hour. It's not so much the physicality of it, but more that I stood my ground as a Canadian and as a professional. That reaction from the fans told me that I did do the right thing. These people wouldn't feel the way they do right now and have that emotion 15 years later if I had done the wrong thing that day."
