“‘If this kind of s–t happens again, you’ve got to involve me here, because it doesn’t have to go down like this. And he agreed. I guess it all worked out. It was sad. I’m really tight with Bret. Bret could’ve done some things differently; Shawn could’ve done things differently; Vince could’ve done things differently. But … that’s one of the great wrestling stories of that era and that decade, the Montreal Screwjob.” (H/T New York Post)
