• Shawn Michaels On What The Undertaker Told Him After The Montreal Screwjob
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, two time WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels recalled the Montreal Screwjob, which took place in the main event of Survivor Series 1997.
He said that he wanted to meet The Undertaker the following night on RAW and know his opinion on the whole incident.
“As far as what everybody thought, hand to God, I didn’t care. I asked about one dude. I went in, I said, ‘Where’s ‘Taker? Where’s Mark?‘ They said he’s in there with Vince, and I said alright.
That’s the only person I went, ‘I just need to know where he’s at on this’. I just need to know where he’s at because if there’s somebody you gotta sit there and have a chat with, it’s gonna be him. For all this to move forward, he and I are gonna have to find a way to…get simpatico on this. So clearly Vince knew the same thing.
That’s why he was the first guy he talked to the next day. To this day, because it’s one of those things where so much has passed and we’ve never even discussed it. I’ve never asked him, ‘What’d he tell you in there?’ But I remember waiting on him, he came out, he walked up to me and he goes, ‘We’re cool’. I’m like ‘alright’.”
