#5. Vince McMahon encouraged Bret Hart to join WCW
Bret Hart was one of the biggest stars in WWE at the time of the Montreal Screwjob, but he revealed to Steve Austin that Vince McMahon actually encouraged him to leave and head over to WCW. Hart said that he even rang McMahon before he signed and told him that he didn't want to go, but the writing was on the wall when he realized that he would be losing to Shawn Michaels in creative ways for the next year.
"I remember I called Vince even the night before I signed and I said I don't wanna go, I said I'm happy with the contract I got, I'm not asking for more money or anything else I just wanna know what you have in mind for me over the next year, like where am I going."
The future in the WWE looked bleak for Bret Hart, which is why he opted to join WCW, a move that was further fueled by the fact that WWE went on to screw him in his home country at Survivor Series.Published 18 Mar 2020, 04:14 IST
