Owen Hart

At one point wrestling prognosticators predicted that Owen would be the first Hart brother to be a World Champion. Needless to say, that didn’t happen, but when fans say that he was just as talented as his older brother Bret, few can argue.

 

Owen was initially a great high flyer, but he combined that with a solid ground game that truly made him one of the best grapplers to watch. His heel turn in 1994 brought out a personality that few fans knew he had and by then he was a complete performer. Sadly, he is best known for his tragic death of which the wrestling world has still not fully recovered from. There is a very good chance he won’t get in, as his widow; Martha blames the WWE for his untimely death. This may be an induction the WWE might be afraid to do, no matter how much they may want to.

Will never happen unless his widow let's it. It's widely known she wants nothing to do with WWE or have WWE do anything involving him
