• The Most Infamous Moment In WWF History Took Place 25 Years Ago Today

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on November 9, 1997, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘WWF Survivor Series 1997’ LIVE on PPV from the Molson Centre at Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The tagline of this pay-per-view was “Gang Rulz”.

This event featured the infamous ‘Montreal Screwjob’, that saw Vince McMahon screwing Bret “The Hitman” Hart in the main event.

Earl Hebner, who was in on Vince’s plans to take the Title off Bret, ended the match when “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels had The Hitman in Bret’s very own submission finisher, the Sharpshooter.

When the bell rang, Bret knew right away that he was screwed and eventually knocked out McMahon in the locker room afterwards.

Here are the results:

Survivor Series elimination match: The Godwinns & The New Age Outlaws defeated The Headbangers & The New Blackjacks

Survivor Series elimination match: The Truth Commission defeated The Disciples of Apocalypse

Survivor Series elimination match: The British Bulldog, Doug Furnas, Jim Neidhart & Phil Lafon defeated Goldust, Marc Mero, Steve Blackman & Vader
