Former WWF Intercontinental Champion Ken Shamrock has said it took "a few weeks to digest" Bret Hart being screwed of the WWF Title at Survivor Series 1997.
Responding to a tweet from new Viceland series 'Dark Side of the Ring', the former UFC star said the atmosphere was "crazy" after the show.
Crazy! Nobody new what was real or a work. It took a few weeks to digest. We work in a world of fiction with some of the best workers in the world. When I understood what happened I was blown away! We are asked to trust each other & the most important person broke that trust!— KEN SHAMROCK (@ShamrockKen) April 17, 2019
In case you didn't already know, the Screwjob took place in November 1997, when Bret Hart was planned to retain the title against Shawn Michaels, and vacate it the next night on RAW before joining WCW.
Instead, Michaels locked the Hitman in the Sharpshooter, and referee Earl Hebner called for the bell, despite Bret never tapping.
Earlier that night, Shamrock had teamed with Ahmed Johnson and the Legion of Doom to defeat the Nation of Domination.
Infuriated, Hart wouldn't appear in a WWE ring again until January 2010, when his father Stu Hart was announced as an inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Bret recently became a two-time Hall of Famer, but was attacked at this year's ceremony by someone from the crowd.
