look up any word, like dirty sanchez:

A screwjob is when events out of your control cause you to lose for whatever reason. This includes outside interference, changes to plans without your knowledge and other similar events.

This can apply to any competitive event, but is mainly tied up with WWE.
The most famous of these is known as the Montreal Screwjob, where Bret 'The Hitman' Hart was screwed out of the WWE Title by Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels, when Bret supposedly 'tapped out' to Shawn after being placed in his own finishing maneuver.
