Our friends at “The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling” podcast sent over some comments made by Bruce Hart in their latest podcast [which you can listen to in full here] about WWE’s upcoming Owen Hart DVD and the possibility of Owen being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Below are Bruce’s comments regarding WWE’s “Owen – Hart of Gold” DVD & Blu-ray:
The upcoming Owen Hart DVD set finally being released:
The fact they are talking about doing a DVD or some damn thing, I would hope that if they do choose to do that, they choose to give the money to charity or give it to Owen’s wife and let her give it to charity. I always hate to sound like one of these em-bittered or some kind of outsider denouncing something because I may be not in it but that’s not really the case. I’ve seen a lot of injustices and things that don’t sit right with me and I think one of the problems with the wrestling business these days all too many people from the wrestling fraternity have this flickering unrealistic notion that I better not say anything detrimental or negative about anyone in Connecticut because it might jeopardize their job security. I suspect that 99% of those poor bastards would if given the time of day. For all intents and purposes I feel that WWE should be endeavoring to do what’s right for the wrestling fan-base.
The timing of recent DVD sets coinciding with Hall of Fame inductions:
It’s exploitative and materialistic and if that’s the case, I’ve suggested to them that several years ago and they gave me some kind of lame rational about Owen and being apprehensive about Martha. I said that it would be that much easier for you guys if you are going to induct Owen that you induct him in the same class in the triage of Davey and Dynamite. They are all kind of from the same, Stampede Wrestling, Owen and Davey were a tag team, quite often Davey was a part of the Hart Foundation like when they did that thing in ’97. It would be that much easier if you inducted them all together and then you have less backlash from Martha if you maybe just inducted Owen individually and it looked like you have more grounds to bitch about it and claim you are exploiting Owen. They didn’t even dignify what I said with a response.
