WWE Owen: Hart of Gold DVD & Blu-ray - 1996 Owen Hart Interview

Just a handful of the noteworthy interviewees shown in the documentary feature through new and archive footage include: Vince McMahon, Triple H, Mick Foley, Edge, Chris Jericho, Scott Hall, Lex Luger, Mike Chioda, Tyson Kidd, Natalya, Davey Boy Smith, and Jim Neidhart.

WWE also reached out to Owen’s brothers Bret, Keith, Bruce, and Ross for new interview material in the documentary, along with Owen’s sisters Alison, Diana, Georgia, and Ellie.

As was expected, Owen’s widow Martha Hart and her two children, Oje and Athena, do not appear. In May of this year Martha stated publicly that they have no support for the project.

  1. J says:

    Oh quit bitching about the run time of the Documentary

  2. Paul Timmons says:

    Tired of these short 1hr documentaries.

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE.

  3. Anan says:

    While I wish the doc was longer, as long as what’s contained in the doc is good, I’m happy. Aside from Bret Hart, I thought HBK and Ken Shamrock were two of Owen’s best rivals and Jerry Lawler in his classic heel commentator days was a huge Owen Hart supporter. So I’m curious as to why those three were not contacted to be interviewed as they are not in the above list of interviewees.

  4. LP1 says:

    The length of the documentary doesn’t bother me as much as the length of the discs, especially disc 1. DVD’s can hold up to 3 hours per disc and Blu-rays can hold well over 4 hours per disc. They did the same thing with the Streak release, spreading out over 5 discs. I don’t understand the logic behind this. It’s like they’re spreading them thin by giving you less content, yet charging you more. You hear “3 disc” or “5 disc” and you think you’re getting more for your money, but you’re actually getting way less.

    • Nick says:

      These days, usually when DVD Disc 1 is only going to be the documentary, they use Single Layer discs where as the other 2 Discs in the set are Dual Layer. I’m sure it’s a cost cutting move as a reason to edit down the documentary. A lot of the older documentaries that are longer were put on Dual Layer discs.

      • LP1 says:

        If it’s a cost cutting move then shouldn’t the prices of these DVDs/BRs be cheaper? At least in theory.

        • Nick says:

          Cost cutting on their end….not ours. lol. Actually, the prices (in my area at least), have really gone down compared to what they use to be years ago. Most WWE DVD 3-Disc sets retail between $16.99 – $19.99 locally, where some 5, 6 years ago they were all essentially $24.99. The WWE Blu Ray sets when first started were going for as much as $39.99 in some stores. That I thought was outrageous!

  5. Vintage Simon says:

    Based on the runtimes, couldn’t this have just been a two-disc set?

  6. Luis says:

    Seems like their style of producing documentaries has changed since the network. They seem to be more like network shows rather than full fledge documentaries.

  7. Shane C. Montgomery says:

    Excited about this release but like others, disc one is too short. Still though, great to see and way past due. Owen Hart WWE HOF 2016?

  8. Jeff Copeland says:

    i sorta agree why is it last few bios are so damn short. when was last bio that went 2 hours ? maybe triple h 2013 ?? or foley seams like after those they just got shorter sad really

    • attitude.era.4life says:

      Paul Heyman is 2 hours. While I do agree that the Lawler was pretty rushed, the Bryan, Shield and Kliq docs really did not need to be much longer.. I’d wait to shoot docs down, before I actually seen it.. Quality is not measured in lenght, but in content.. the other way is absolutely also happening, courtesey of the dreadfull repetitive long Monday Night War release.

  9. Brad Attitude says:

    I’m sick of these one hour documentaries. Guys like Owen, Sting & Ultimate Warrior deserve the normal 2 hr doco. This is just textbook retardedness.

  10. Mark Markson says:

    The runtime for disc 1 is a disgrace! They could have given us almost two extra hours of matches…

    • Jayke1981 says:

      I have to agree with you. It’s had enough that the Owen is Raw tributes are Blu-ray exclusives. I thought that was down to time constraints. Clearly not. I’ll still get the DVD, but I’m disappointed.
