12. Bret Hart
Could it be? Was the Montreal Screwjob all a work as a part of the mastermind underground society? According to urban legends, Bret Hart volunteered to the job creating one of the biggest moments in wrestling history. With such a departure, Hart helped boost the WWE’s rating to an all-time high while going to WCW as a plant to further injure the promotion.
The evidence seems to support this claim. Instead of banking off of the screwjob, Bret showed up to the competition show once the dust had settled. In addition, his work rate suffered immensely and Hart just didn’t look the same in comparison to his WWE days.
Although Bret loves to rip WCW and their lack of direction, Bret wasn’t the easiest going member of the roster, being often bitter towards officials and providing the company with subpar matches. In the world of conspiracy theories, the Montreal Screwjob remains one of the most prevalent topics (and is still discussed to this day). The question remains, was Bret in on it? If he was, The Hitman’s an underground society member for life.
