CM PunkJR Comments on Bret Hart Appreciation Night

Jim Ross has posted the following on JRsBarBQ.com, regarding tonight's Bret Hart Appreciation Night after Raw:

"I did an interview for a Calgary newspaper early this morning that I assume will go into tomorrow's paper in Calgary about Bret Hart who will be honored tonight in his hometown. Easy to talking about that topic as Bret was one of the best in ring performers I ever saw and could maximize the presentation of a match with any talent with whom he was booked."
