The Montreal Screwjob took place twenty years ago today.

What more can be said about it? Although people knew wrestling was and is predetermined, this was a pivotal point where a federation explicitly told us it was.
It obviously led to the "Mr. McMahon" character doing great things with Steve Austin.
What of the rest of SURVIVOR SERIES, though? It's sad that the event has been overshadowed by the screwjob.
The Team Canada VS Team USA bout was solid. Goldust took a leaf out of the "Bad News Brown playbook" by abandoning his team.
Kane VS Mankind was also a solid bout, very effectively done.
The card itself was, in my view, one of the strongest of 1997 - but the matches will forever be overshadowed by the Bret/Shawn debacle.
