Most wrestling news sites are picking up on the upcoming WWE DVD as specifically covering “The Montreal Screwjob”. However, according to Shawn Michaels on Twitter the October DVD will not be focused on the controversial incident of 1997.
Judging by messages left by Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart and Jim Ross the project does appear to be a DVD on the HBK/Hart rivalry, but as a whole. It also makes sense given that WWE had an Austin/Rock rivalry DVD scheduled for the same time.
Here’s what Shawn Michaels said on Twitter regarding the DVD:
Since its out. Bret Hart & I did do interviews 2day w/ JR. It was awesome to say the least. I REALLY think u all will like it!!
(Reply to fan). Its not a Montreal Screwjob DVD. Since we’re in it can we decide what it is?
(Reply to fan). Discussed everything! There was much, much more to our relationship than just that [Montreal Screwjob].
Bret Hart also took to Twitter following the interviews in Stamford and had this to say:
Early flight tomorrow. DVD shoot went really well. Very cathartic [cleansing] & I think everyone will enjoy it when it’s released.
