Earl Hebner – ‘Owen Hart Didn’t Blame Me For The Montreal Screwjob’



Owen Hart wasn’t among those blaming Earl Hebner for the Montreal Screwjob, according to the legendary and controversial referee.

The Survivor Series 1997 main event saw Bret Hart screwed out of the WWF Championship after Hebner rang the bell while Bret was in the sharpshooter despite not tapping out.

In a recent interview with Steve Fall of “The Ten Count” podcast, Hebner recalled Owen confronting him after the Montreal Screwjob. He said,

“Owen truthfully came up to me and said, ‘I want you to know something. I’m not mad at you. I have no hard feelings about what happened. We’re still friends. I understand.’ I said, ‘Well, I really appreciate that.’”

Following the Montreal Screwjob, the Hart Foundation was granted releases from the company with the exception of Owen who’d pass away after a tragic accident at Over the Edge 1999.
