Re: The Montreal Screwjob.. Who acted worse?
Bret screwed Bret. He really wasn't that special, and to flat-out refuse to drop the title to Shawn. It wasn't like Bret was some fabled Canadian hero. Even though his character was a nationalist, he was far from being straight-up idolized and legit riots happening.
Even though Vince gets ostracized here often about some of his decisions and more appalling nature/attitude [Making fun of JR's Bells palsy], the man is still someone who respected most of his stars [Not having any problems with Flair leaving, as long he dropped the title before he went to WCW.]
But Bret didn't want to drop the title to Shawn, who really was the only wrestler at the time that could hold the belt and be credible. Even though he was a member of The Kliq, Michaels was still a respected wrestler and great champion. I know Hart wanted to stand-up to Michaels horrible behavior, but at the end of the day, its better to be a professional.
