WWE Hall Of Famer Opens Up About Owen Hart Tragedy

The professional wrestling industry has been deeply impacted by the untimely deaths of numerous young talents. However, the passing of Owen Hart stands as one of the most heartrending tragedies in the sport’s history.

On May 23, 1999, during the WWE’s Over the Edge pay-per-view event, Hart, assuming the persona of the Blue Blazer, was slated to make a captivating entrance from the arena’s rafters. Tragically, a malfunction in the stunt harness led to Hart plummeting from a significant height, resulting in fatal injuries.

The profound shock and sorrow reverberated not only within the wrestling community but also far beyond, leaving an enduring impact that is still deeply felt today.

In a recent instalment of the Everybody’s Got A Pod podcast, WWE Hall of Famer ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase candidly shared his thoughts on the tragic loss of Owen Hart, offering a poignant reflection on the enduring legacy of a beloved wrestling figure.

“Owen was great. I’m telling you, Owen was a pleasure to work with, you know. And the tragedy of what eventually happened to him is so sad. I mean, because he had so much potential. And in real life, he was a really funny guy. I mean he was a ribber. A ribber, meaning a jokester. He would play ribs on people, you know, and like everybody in the dressing room would get to laugh at it, whatever it was. But just a great guy, and it was just so sad, so sad that he died like he did.”

Owen Hart was revered for his exceptional performance skills and endeared as a person by both his loyal fan base and fellow wrestlers.
