Earl Hebner Says Bret Hart Might Be In On Montreal Screwjob: "I'm Not Going to Lie About it Anymore"

Former WWF referee Earl Hebner says he believes that the infamous Montreal Screwjob was a work.

The affair, which took place in 1997, saw Shawn Michaels take the WWF World Heavyweight Championship belt off Bret Hart before he departed for WCW. Nineteen years later, there are still many question marks looming over this match as the story is one of Vince McMahon screwing Hart over by planning for Michaels to win the belt unbeknownst to his competitor.

Hebner refereed the controversial Survivor Series match between the two legendary figures and, speaking to Bully Ray in an interview on Sirius XM's Busted Open Radio, said that both men must have known exactly how things would play out.
