Re: The Montreal Screwjob.. Who acted worse?
Vince breached the contract Bret signed with the WWE. According to various sources, Vince began to defer Bretīs payments indefinetely. He said that Bret could remain with the company and they would honor all the arrangements made, but his salary couldnīt be paid.
He should have negoatiated a new salary with Bret, but what did he do? He encouraged him to reopen negotiations with WCW. Bret could have taken Vince to court because his deferment of payment was a clear violation of the agreement that had been reached between them. He should have and could have won.
