As stated above, this incident is constantly rehashed within the WWE, both by the company and its fans.

Vince McMahon stated on television the night after the event that "he didn't screw Bret Hart, Bret Hart screwed Bret Hart." This line has been endlessly paraphrased in promos by various wrestlers and managers ("Mick Foley screwed Mick Foley", etc.)

Earl Hebner was the referee for that match, and who was supposedly aware of the screwjob. Whenever he appears anywhere in Canada (let alone Montreal), the fans chat "You screwed Bret!" at him. In Montreal, these chants are especially deafening.
