We all know that the springboard for the Attitude Era and the rise of Stone Cold Steve Austin came indirectly from the Montreal Screwjob. Vince was able to take the turmoil from that night to create his corrupt owner "Mr.McMahon" character. Since Austin was now the badass face, thanks to the WM 13 match with Bret, he became the perfect foil to the boss. My question is this: since we all know Vince is a wrestling genius overall, do you think he had that in mind before that fateful night in Montreal? Did he screw Bret knowing that he would turn the backlash against him into a positive for business? He knew Shawn was running out of time due to his back, and Austin was the obvious choice to be the next champ. They didn't really have any big name heels left, so did he think he was the only choice to get heat? What are your thoughts?
