Default Why did Bret Hart leave the WWF?

Was it simply that he wanted the pay increase that WCW offered him, or was he pressured to leave by HHH, HBK and Vince? I ask, because now that we know just how smart and manipulative HHH really is, I wonder how much influence he had, even back as far as 97'.















Obviously Bret left after the Montreal Screwjob, but that only happened because he was on his way out anyway.

isn't it funny how WWE is all worried about the age of active wrestlers.........but think its a brilliant idea to bring in guys from 10 years ago who haven't been in the ring in 5 and expect them to draw for Wrestlemania.

Triple H only played a minor role in the situation and that was opening his big @ss mouth and the infamous "We'll do business for him". Bottom line is that WCW offered Bret somewhere between 1.5-2 million a year (give or take) with guarantees and Vince just couldn't give out those contracts. The same reason why he had to let Hall and Nash go. Bret and Vince did have a little tension because of some issues or whatever but I'm still doubt if there was much to that. Vince didn't want Bret to go and Bret really didn't want to go but the money was too good and at the time he was thinking about his family. Bret didn't want to drop the title before he left to Shawn Michaels (because he was a prick) which caused the big dilemma. Vince, Jim Cornette, and Vince Russo all said that they exercised every possible option for Bret to drop the belt to Shawn but he just didn't want to do it. Bret said no to it all and that he would hand the belt over on the Raw after Survivor Series.































Of course, that put Vince in a tough spot because what if Bret was to go to WCW and put the WWF title on their programming? See what kind of spot that put Vince in? Even though I think he should've known better than to have that little trust in Bret, boom.........Montreal Screwjob happens.































So to answer your question, no Shawn, Hunter, and Vince didn't force him out. It was that money WCW offered him. The whole thing just ended really ugly, that's all.

You're making it sound like HHH is evil.

Bret Hart was upset with the way Vince McMahon was running things and treating him and he was already considering a huge offer from WCW (3 Years/9 Million) but the Montreal ScrewJob broke the camels back and made him split.
