screwjob
 n.— «But a secretive change of the match’s finish, known as a “screwjob” in pro wrestling parlance, already had been concocted by McMahon and Michaels. The plan called for Hebner to signal for the bell and end the match as Michaels held Hart in the sharpshooter hold. Michaels was declared the victor by submission and the new WWF champion. Hart, however, never really submitted, and he, along with the audience, was outraged.» —“Hebner doesn’t regret ‘Montreal Screwjob’” by Mike Mooneyham Post and Courier (Charleston, South Carolina) June 24, 2007.
