Owen Hart was famous for his sense of humor. There are a ton of funny stories out there from wrestlers about how they were pranked by The Rocket. That was his favorite way to pass the time on the road.
NOTE: Thanks to Redditor KrispinDallas2, whose post directed me to the following video.
I thought about going more in-depth on Owen, but ProWrestlingStories.com (a site that we at Nerdopotamus have a working relationship with) has already published a few stellar posts about The King of Harts. You should definitely check them out.
If you click HERE, you’ll be taken to a story, entitled, “OWEN HART- A MAN OF HEART, HUMOR AND HUMILITY. STORIES FROM BROTHER BRET, TRIPLE H AND JIM ROSS.”
That one talks a lot about his sense of humor, and the sort of man he was.
If you click HERE, you’ll get another quick story, ala the one you just watched Triple H tell, “Val Venis Recalls the Time Owen Hart Pranked His Driver & Jeff Jarrett in a Car.”
Now. If you know Owen Hart’s story, then you know that his unfortunate and untimely passing is a huge event in the history of professional wrestling. Which is why the following article has seen over 210,000 reads. Click HERE for a fantastic piece, entitled, “Owen Hart’s Death, What Really Happened – From Those Who Were There.”
Finally, if you click HERE, you’ll be taken to, “Our Last Night Together” – Owen Hart’s final moments with his family.
Enjoy your reading. When you’re finished, if you’re looking for an Owen Hart match to watch, I have three suggestions.
- Owen vs. Bret at SummerSlam 1994
- All of King of the Ring 1994. Trust me. It’s the crowning of The King of Harts.
- Survivor Series 1993. It’s The Hart Family vs. Shawn Michaels and His Knights. Owen is the only one eliminated from his team, which, in turn, causes him to lash out at Bret, launching a rivalry between the two of them that would play out beautifully over the next year.
If you finish those and want more, come on back here, and hit the comment section. I’ll be happy to help you out.
