WWE: 7 Reasons Owen Hart Should NEVER Go Into Hall Of Fame

Owen HartOn May 23rd, 1999 Owen Hart was dressed as the Blue Blazer and suspended nearly 80 feet above the ring by a cable that would lower him down for his match. Somehow, his release opened and he fell tragically to his death, hitting the ropes before collapsing back in the ring. It was a horrific and sad night, compounded by the fact the PPV continued even as Owen was rushed in vain to the hospital. He would be pronounced dead that night. Every year around WrestleMania time wrestling fans will start buzzing about Owen Hart and the WWE Hall of Fame. Many feel that Owen Hart should finally be inducted with the likes of former greats like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and even his own brother Bret. Many feel that he would be at home with this year's class including Razor Ramon, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, and Lita. Yet as the years pass the circumstances behind his death continue to be minimized even as the legend of the King of Hearts grows. Because he has not been inducted yet, the fans seem to clamor for it more and more, never giving too much thought to if he should actually be inducted at all. There have been rumors that Owen will finally be inducted next year. These rumors have gained some ground after Owen's brother and Hall of Famer Bret Hart pushed for his induction, going so far as to admonish Owen's wife for erasing his legacy. There is no doubt that Owen was a heck of a talent and, by all accounts from his peers and family, a great man. His blend of technical and high flying maneuvers, perfect annoying heel characters, and championship accomplishments might make him seem a lock for eventual induction. No matter what fans think, however, it just isn't that simple. As unpopular as they might be, there are several reasons why Owen should never be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
