Footage of The Honky Tonk Man has recently surfaced online where he talks about several disputes in the wrestling industry. In the video, Honky talked about the backstage fight between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in 1997 when he was also with the WWF:

“I saw Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels down on the floor in Hartford, Connecticut, they cannot deny it happened because it did happen,” he said. “They were in the locker room down on the floor, pulling at each other’s hair. They had to be separated, and it had nothing to do with professional wrestling. It had to do with a personal vendetta that they had against each other. These were just two guys who could not co-exist anymore in the same locker room. It did finally culminate to the Montreal Screwjob.”
