In a recent interview longtime WWWF/WWF and WWE veteran George “The Animal” Steele addressed the infamous “Montreal Screw Job” that saw Bret Hart double-crossed by Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels in Canada and Hart lost the WWF World Championship in controversial fashion. This incident has become something of lore in professional wrestling but in the interview Steele makes it clear he is no fan of Hart when he said…
“To me that’s one of the biggest jokes in wrestling of all time. Lets be honest, who did Bret Hart beat to win the belt? They give him the belt and then he can’t drop the belt in his own country? Give me a frickin break. By Vince doing the double cross Vince became the hottest thing in the business when all he did was take his belt back. He outdid everyone who walked away like Hulk and Bret.”
Later in the interview Steele, when playing a word association game said that Bret Hart was “lucky.” It would seem that “The Animal” is no fan of Bret Hart.
