WWE Legend Bret Hart confirms he'll be on Raw tonight (July 7, 2014) in Montreal

The Hitman spoke to SLAM! Sports in Canada and confirmed that his appearance in Montreal tonight will not just be for the live audience, but that he will be appearing on the televised broadcast that airs at 8PM Eastern time on USA Network in the States.

In typical Vince McMahon style though, he has no idea what he's doing or who he's working with:

I'm not sure what I'll be doing at the show but I know it's going to be on the TV show, it's going to be for Raw, not just for the house show.

Bret Hart also touches on what happened the last time he appeared on Raw in Montreal.  That was on September 10, 2012...when Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack on air while working the announce desk after wrestling CM Punk.  The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be jokingly responded to what he expected from the crowd:

I think it's going to be a kind of similar moment than the last time, it should be a great response and it's going to be great for me to walk out and to get the warmth from those great fans...We'll try to stop Jerry Lawler from having another heart attack and steal my thunder.  Yeah, I think he'll probably get a heck of a pop and rightfully so. He may get the pop of the night and steal my thunder again!

Check out more at the link, with Hart talking about what it's like wrestling after a tragedy like Lawler's episode, or the passing of his brother Owen, and discussing his recent appearance in NXT for Takeover, where he cornered his niece Natalya against Charlotte and her father/manager, Ric Flair.

Who's excited for the Excellence of Execution on Raw tonight?  What do you think he'll be booked to do?
