I’m hoping next year at WrestleMania that he’ll be inducted and I’ll be really sorely disappointed if he’s not. It’s really overdue.”
Many have speculated that the omission of Owen to the Hall is largely due t his widow, Martha, who has been very vocal about her dislike of the WWE and has previously been in multiple litigations with the “E”. Bret did not allude to this but did discuss how they had to tiptoe around her in the creation of the upcoming Owen Hart DVD and that she has made a fool out of herself in regards to trying to obliterate the legacy of Owen Hart in the WWE.
Bret would add that if Owen does not go into the WWE Hall of Fame next year, he won’t attend another one until the tag team of he and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart were selected.
He would go on to add that he would like to see his fellow Hart Foundation faction members, The British Bulldog and Brian Pillman in, as well as former Tag Team Champions, Demolition.
Could Bret influence the powers that be (namely Vince McMahon) that an induction for Owen should happen next year? Considering the scandals involving Jimmy Snuka and Hulk Hogan that have taken place recently, it might be prudent not to rehash a dark day in wrestling history, even though the resume of Owen Hart shows he belongs and frankly would make us very happy.
