Owen Hart WWE DVD Coming in 2015!!!

Here at WrestlingDVDNews.com we are proud to exclusively announce today, on what would have been his 50th birthday, that WWE is currently hard at work planning a biographical DVD and Blu-ray release on the life and career of Owen Hart!

The years of bad blood and ill feeling between WWE and Owen’s widow, Martha Hart, have been well documented and naturally led wrestling fans to believe that Owen’s wrestling career being honored was something they would likely never see…. until now!

Sadly, as you know, the wrestling world suffered a great loss in 1999 when Owen tragically died during the Over the Edge PPV in Kansas City, Missouri. What followed in the subsequent near 15 year period was a slew of litigation between Martha Hart and the company.

****
AMENDMENT: Although WDN had initially been advised that this Owen Hart WWE DVD/Blu-ray project would be going ahead with the “backing and support of his family”, Martha Hart has since contacted us directly to state that she and her children were not aware of the project and do not back or support it in any way [MORE DETAILS & PUBLIC APOLOGY].
****

A documentary is in the works for the main feature of the set. Earlier this month WWE released a YouTube clip titled “Inside The Hart Family Dungeon” which included some new interview footage with Bret Hart. Right now that’s speculated to be a snippet of a longer interview conducted with Bret, quite possibly shot for the purpose of the Owen Hart documentary.

On a day where we normally look back at the legacy of Owen Hart, today we as wrestling fans can now look forward to seeing his wrestling legacy honored. Finally.

Happy Birthday Owen Hart!

We believe this WWE Home Video project may be the biggest we’ve reported on in 5 years running WDN – we would love to hear your thoughts, so please share your comments below.

Martha Hart doesn’t approve. But Owen’s fans deserve this so I’m glad WWE is giving his fans (myself included) a long awaited doc.

Speaking of way past due, how about Owen Hart in the WWE Hall of Fame!

Too bad thats not the cover that we got here in the United States –
I like when the wrestlers who face each other are next to each other on the cover.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Owen was the big name for 2015. People keep saying the Undertaker will be inducted because it was Texas, but I think that’s kinda stupid if he’s wrestling a match on the same weekend, even if it’s his last. Has anybody else been inducted the night before they wrestle a match? That’s silly, because it should come after your big WWE in-ring career is over. He should wrestle his final match in Texas, but be inducted the following year. SO I wouldn’t rule out Owen for 2015.

Ric Flair was first inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 29, 2008 in Orlando, Florida, the night before he wrestled his final WWE match.

We’re already in the year 2015, so I’m sure that you meant 2016. Today’s date is May 8, 2015.

Hopefully this will lead to HOF in 2016

Can any Americans who have the ‘Mania DVD already confirm whether the “b*tch” is bleeped in “Suplex city, b*tch?” I’ve been wondering if that would happen ever since I saw Brock say it live, lol.

Its left in & not bleeped. Alundra Blayze also says ‘b!tch’ during her HOF speech & its not bleeped. The only bleep i can think of is Alundra saying ‘sh!t’ in her speech but other than that,i think the cursing is pretty well left in.

I’m stoked about this news, good to see a WWE dvd on Owen Hart finally come to life.

Another good thing will be the amount of old school matches on it and not one of today’s garbage matches so I’m happy 🙂

Martha Hart DID NOT give approval to this DVD and she will never give. If WWE really is producing this DVD it’s against Martha’s wishes.

I was a very close friend of Owen and I still being in contact with Martha, who’s also a close friend of me.

I seriously don’t understand the argument that DVD is better? who cares about the video quality it’s already good but the best thing is more content plain and simple!!! I only buy dvd to be a tight ass if I don’t care about the blu ray exclusives.

The blu-ray exclusives is why I buy that format. With the DVD, you kinda don’t get everything.

But yes, if you don’t care about the blu-ray exclusives, you might as well buy the DVD.

The only complaint I have about WWE’s blu-rays, is the picture quality of the older footage (pre-2008). If you compare the picture quality to some older movie released on blu-ray, older movies usually have crystal clear picture quality.

What the f**k do you want them to do? ITs old. its going to look old. In fact that on Bluray the older stuff looks even a little bit better. Stop being such a whiny little b**ch

Calm down. What is your problem. Bet you don’t have the guts to call me that if you stood in front of me.
