Bret Hart commented on his January 4th RAW return and his confrontation with Shawn Michaels on his Facebook page, writing:
It’s worth mentioning that although I did see Shawn earlier in the afternoon in the cafeteria, our in-ring face-off was unrehearsed and heartfelt on both sides and I can finally say that Shawn and I have finally made peace in what has been a long, draining, and sometimes pointless war of personalities. As for everything else that happened, on one hand, I finally found some closure. On the other hand, as far as Vince McMahon goes, I haven’t closed anything at all. I have a lot of friends in a lot of places and we’ll just have to see what happens next.
