On this date in WCW history: Bret Hart debuts on Monday Nitro

Bret Hart made his debut on Monday Nitro on this date in WCW history, finally jumping ship from the WWF after the infamous Montreal Screwjob.


On December 15, 1997, Bret Hart made his first appearance for WCW on Monday Nitro when Chairman of the Board J.J. Dillon revealed him to be the special guest referee for the match between Eric Bischoff and Larry Zbyszko at Starrcade.

After everything that went on between the WWF and Bret Hart in the wake of the Montreal Screwjob, how excited were you to see "The Hitman" in WCW? And what's your opinion on how he was booked?
