Bret Hart

Bret Hart was never one to verbally abuse anybody, but The Excellence of Execution found himself on The Chairman’s bad side for a decade and change when, in 1997, he succumbed to the wares of Ted Turner’s bottomless purse and jumped ship to WCW. The “Hit Man’s” impending defection provoked The Chairman to conspire with Shawn Michaels to initiate the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” that robbed Hart of his WWE Title.

After realizing he’d been had in his home country, Hart spit in the face of The Chairman at ringside before infamously punching him in the locker room after McMahon offered Hart a free shot as retribution. Despite the cold-cocking, though, the hatchet between the pair would go unburied until their match at WrestleMania XXVI in 2010. Time certainly heals all wounds … but a Sharpshooter and a steel chair tend to aid in the recovery as well.
