Growing up in the famed Hart wrestling family, Owen Hart could have relied on the clan’s storied reputation to open doors for him. Rather than ride his family’s name to the top, he paved his own path to greatness by developing one of the most technically sound offensive arsenals of all-time.
Owen’s career skyrocketed in 1994 after turning on his brother, Bret. The move proved unpopular with fans, but ultimately served as a launching pad for the younger Hart to finally break free from his sibling’s overwhelming shadow. Owen finally accomplished his goal when he defeated Bret in their classic WrestleMania X showdown.
Following his victory over Bret, Owen began to compile an impressive list of accolades, starting with the King of the Ring crown in June 1994, capturing the European Championship and two reigns as Intercontinental Champion.
Despite drawing the wrath of fans for his in-ring history, Owen developed a respectable reputation among his fellow wrestlers. In fact, his impeccable approach to performing made him a popular tag team partner among his peers.
A tragic accident claimed the life of Owen Hart on May 23, 1999. The loss of such a great man has left a void that can never be filled. The memory of Owen’s technical brilliance inside the ring and his kind, jovial nature out of it will endure in the hearts and minds of wrestling fans everywhere.
