In the last few weeks, Bret Hart hasn’t been shy with his words. On top of calling out Hulk Hogan on his words about Roddy Piper, the WWE Hall of Fame wrestler is in on the conversation about former WWE star Owen Hart. As Owen’s brother, Bret does a great job of carrying on his legacy, which should culminate in a WWE Hall of Fame induction.
An earlier report by the Inquisitr noted that Owen Hart may be getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016. The first name won’t be announced until January or February of next year, but Hart’s name is rumored for the first time in years.
There’s no argument from any WWE fan, as Hart deserves to be inducted into the Hall. In addition to that hope, the WWE is releasing a DVD about Owen Hart. It’s arguably the most-anticipated documentary in recent memory.
Not everything is positive vibes surrounding Hart’s legacy. This, coming from Bret, isn’t a new revelation. In the past, Martha Hart, widowed of Owen, is trying to erase his memory from wrestling. A recent interview shed some light into what Bret Hart thinks of that.
“I’m looking forward to it but I’m not really optimistic that it’s going to be a great job. Martha [Hart, Owen’s widow] handcuffed them so much. I don’t know if they’re even allowed to use any pictures from the past. It’s a poorly done DVD because of all the restraints and the limitations that Martha put on it. To me, that’s such a lousy thing to have happen. I think Owen would turn in his grave if he knew how much trouble Martha has gone to erase his career and make sure that nobody enjoys anything about his career today. It’s a bitterness and selfishness that I can’t stand by anymore. I think Martha’s taken the wrong approach and she should understand that, you know, we all miss Owen. I lost a brother, I lost a great friend and maybe one of the closest people I knew on this earth.
There’s more to the interview that is a must-read. Hart brings up a lot of great points. The WWE isn’t trying to disrespect the Hart family, Owen, or anybody else involved in his legacy. Martha Hart’s logic, as Bret Hart points out, isn’t even valid. After all, Owen put his life on the line every night and sacrificed everything for the WWE. That’s why the WWE is making a DVD, considering him for the Hall of Fame, and remembering his legacy.
