WWE RAW Opener:
A Bret Hart video package opens up the show. When we get to the live audience, they introduce tonight’s special guest host…Bret "The Hitman" Hart.
"Well I guess hell froze over," Bret Hart opens. He talks about it being 12 years since he’s been back and it’s an amazing feeling. He says Vince always declined and told him it wasn’t possible for him to come back when he brought it up and tried to come back in the past. A LOUD "one more match" chant breaks out. He says "thank you" to all the fans for letting him not be forgotten. He owes everything to the WWE Universe and he thanks them again. He starts talking about memories and winning his first King of the Ring match and then Jerry Lawler jumping him afterward.
He then says he has another reason he’s there and he wants to get some things off his chest. The first thing….he wants Shawn Michaels to come out! HBK’s entrance hits and here he comes! Shawn gets in the ring and goes face to face with Shawn Michaels. Bret then says he wants to bury the hatchet and call a truce right now. Shawn grabs a mic and says that before Bret gets his closure, he’s been waiting 12 years to say that Bret deserved what happened in Montreal. He says Bret disrespected him and the business and yes, he did have a hand in what Vince did that night. A loud "You screwed Bret" chant breaks out and Bret says that because of that, he rests his case.
Shawn says there’s a big part of him that doesn’t regret a bit of it. However, there’s another part of him that knows in the last 12 years, a lot of things in his life have changed. He says that he always respected Bret, but feels Bret didn’t respect him. There were times that he couldn’t stand the sight of Bret and he knows the feeling is mutual. When he thinks of Bret Hart, he doesn’t think of Montreal. He thinks of Anaheim, California – a 60 minute Ironman Match that no one thought the fans would want to see. But Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels went out there and did it. When Shawn thinks of Bret Hart, he thinks of the "Excellence of Execution". Shawn tells Bret he’s not the only one who wants to move on. The last thing he has to say is…are you sure and are you ready?
Bret then says being honest, Shawn wasn’t the easiest guy to love back then either. But he says Shawn’s right, their careers shouldn’t be hung on Montreal and tonight, they should take this opportunity to say that the two of them could be friends. He puts his hand out and wants Shawn to call a truce and bury the hatchet right now. The crowd boos, but Shawn shakes his hand. The crowd cheers..or at least some of them. Shawn starts exiting, and it looks like he’s going to superkick him, but instead, he goes and hugs Bret. Shawn then starts leaving.
Before he can though, Bret says there’s one more thing he wants to ask and before he can, he needs Vince McMahon to come out there and face him too.
