I was sitting in front of the tv, eating a lite dinner and flicking through the channels when I stopped at TenSports. They were showing classic wresting matches and today they were showing a match between my favourite wrestler of all time, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart and, his younger brother, the late Owen Hart. As wrestling fans will know, Owen met with a tragic death 9 years ago in Kansas City, falling from the ceiling in an entrance stunt that went wrong. But his memory lives on in the hearts of his family, friends & wrestling fans all over the world.
The match in particular was one in a steel cage at SummerSlam 1994 for the world heavyweight title, held by the older Hart. The two brothers went at it in front of their parents, brothers, sisters & brother-in-law Davy ‘British Bulldog’ Smith. It was a truly great match and finally, with both brothers hanging on the outside of the cage, Bret banged Owen’s head against the steel and jumped to the ground, the victor. The Anvil then attached Smith and together with Owen, pushed Bret back into the cage and beat him up after locking the door. The other Hart brothers tried to interfere and finally were able to chase the Anvil & Owen.
It was a great match between great wrestlers. Brought back memories of a fine person and a great wrestler. Still missing you, Owen!
