The Biggest Double Cross in the History of Professional Wrestling
By David Meltzer - The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Bret Hart November 2, 1997 - Hart and McMahon started a very amicable conversation with the pressure finally off and the decision for Hart to leave having been made. He again suggested that Michaels win the title in Montreal. And, in what will go down as perhaps the ultimate irony, said they could do a screw job ending to steal the title from Hart, and that the next night, on RAW, McMahon would suggest the two get into a mock argument where Hart would punch him, blaming him for the screw job. McMahon even suggested to hardway him (a real blow) to make it look legit. Hart refused to do the job (lose) in Montreal, saying that he had never refused to do a job but he wasn't going to lose on Sunday or Monday (at RAW in Ottawa). Hart made it clear that to lose in Canada would be an insult to his Canadian fans, and would destroy the "Hit Man" character in Canada. He said he was a hero in Canada, and wouldn't do the job there. He agreed to put Michaels over in Madison Square Garden on November 15th, Springfield or anywhere else.

McMahon made legal threats to Hart if he wouldn't lose in Montreal. Hart talked about the clause in his contract giving him "reasonable creative control" but McMahon claimed that refusing to drop the strap in Montreal wasn't "reasonable".
