    A 2 hour documentary would be very nice.

    Promos:
    Interview with Vince where he challenges Bret Hart to face him – “I’m tired of being in the shadow of you, The Hit Man. So why don’t you step up to the plate? You and me face to face, one on one. When I kicked you in the leg, Vince, it felt great.”

    Owen Hart and Bruce Hart on The King’s Court

    Slammy Award speech(es)

    It’d be so great if they had as an extra the entire Raw is Owen episode. I know it’s on The Network or will be, but it just makes sense for it to be on a Owen Hart set too.

    Matches:
    Some High Energy matches. I know not everyone was a fan of Koko B. Ware. But these matches are rare and Owen was a young, hungry flyin around the ring exciting talent at this time.

    The New Hart Foundation vs Orient Express – Forgot when this match was exactly. Royal Rumble 92? I know The Express took on The Rockers in a Rumble opener too, which I believe was 91. I liked the original Hart Foundation best. But Owen’s high flying style fit the Orient Express.

    Hart Family vs The Knights – Survivor Series 93: Kickstarted one of the WWE’s best heel turns ever.

    Bret & Owen vs The Steiners – I believe this was a WWF Tag Titles match from from the WrestleFest tapes?

    Bret and Owen vs The Quebecers- Royal Rumble 94: Reignited one of the best heel turns ever.

    Bret vs Owen – WM10, Summerslam 94 (including post-match happenings and interview), I think they also had a WWF Title match on Acton Zone in 94 too. That’d be a nice welcome too as those matches are some of the rarest.

    Owen Hart’s KOTR 94 matches and his “King of Harts” Coronation Speech.

    Taker vs Owen Hart – RAW 1996 that ended with a Taker win following a wicked Tombstone Piledriver. To my knowledge, this one has not been released yet.

    HBK vs Owen: The match (forgot when) where HBK was knocked cold by an enziguri from Owen.

    HBK vs Owen: IYH: Rage In A Cage

    Owen vs Bulldog – RAW, Bret interrupts the match to reform The Hart Foundation

    Austin/Shamrock/Goldust/LOD vs Hart Foundation – IYH: Canadian Stampede

    Taker/Austin/Dude Love vs The Hart Foundation – Flag match

    Austin vs Owen

    Owen Hart vs HBK – WWF Title, RAW 1997

    Ken Shamrock vs Owen – Dungeon match (Fully Loaded 98), Lion’s Den match (Summerslam 98)

    Test and D-Lo Brown vs Jarrett and Owen: WM15, Owen’s last WM, but also a big event where he left with a successful Title defense.

    I know WWE’s been editing Benoit since 2007, but for the sake of this set, they should add the Owen Hart Tribute match from Nitro between Bret and Benoit.

    Of course Title matches, win or lose, as long as they’re great matches are always welcome additions. His Tag Team Title wins with Yokozuna, Bulldog and Jeff Jarrett, European Title matches with HHH, etc.

    Martha Hart…I agree with Vintage Simon. And I’m probably crazy for saying this. But how great would it be if she was involved with the project? What if WWE extended the invitation to her and she accepted? What if she likes the set to the point of where she allows WWE to induct Owen into the HOF? Because I believe that is the only thing stopping them from doing that.

    • eric says:

      Dude I agree that most of these are GREAT moments in Owen history but I’m not sure if your aware about 70-80% of what you put here is all on the newtowrk

  2. Vintage Simon says:

    I appreciate that Martha is fully against this project, but my hunch is that she’ll end up seeing it – and my hope is that it might be able to repair some of the damage, even if it’s only a very minor amount.

    My hope is that, someday, she might have the type of relationship with WWE that Dana Warrior has. I know it’s a very long shot, but if this documentary (and feedback from fans) is able to heal at least some of the wounds, then it may end up being a very worthwhile project.

  3. THOMAS says:

    I don’t know whether I will be buying the dvd of Owen Hart

  4. me says:

    I hope they show the no holds barred match and the lumberjack match that he had with Bret. Both are from Coliseum Video (the no holds barred isn’t the one from Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection, that is a different one from Raw)

  5. Lemo says:

    If only Owen vs Jushin Liger would make the set.

  6. RCS1988 says:

    As long as the DVD features these matches, then, I’m good with it, but I doubt that WWE will ever put these matches on the set. If you have questions on why I chose these matches, just ask. Yes they are all from TV tapings.

    • LP1 says:

      You do realize that none of those matches have commentary, right? 99% of the dark matches at TV tapings don’t have commentary. WWE doesn’t like putting matches with no commentary(except on rare occasions) on DVDs. They would need to send a new commentary crew into the studio to overdub a new commentary track for all those matches and, honestly, do we really need to hear the voices of Cole, Saxton, JBL, Phillips, etc. while watching matches from 20-30 years ago? It would sound completely out of place.

      • LP1 says:

        That’s also if those matches were taped. Most of the dark matches were not taped back then unless they were used for a Coliseum Video release.

        • RCS1988 says:

          Actually, most stuff was taped, incase they wanted to use it for Coliseum Video, but would end up not using it. Some dark matches even aired in other countries that never aired in the U.S., So the whole they didn’t tape matches is false. They taped mostly everything at the TV tapings, with no commentary, so they wouldn’t need to add a commentary track. They could if they want.

          • LP1 says:

            I didn’t say they didn’t tape any dark matches, I said they didn’t tape most of them. But that’s besides the point because the commentary is the real issue. WWE doesn’t like using matches with no commentary. Unless it’s an all time classic like the Hogan-Andre and Hogan-Warrior matches where they used the single hard-camera view. They won’t be using tons of dark matches with no commentary on any release.

            • RCS1988 says:

              They could have easily kept in the commentary on those 2 matches, via hard camera view, but WWE didn’t want to pay Ventura. I did hear that an unreleased matches compilation might come out in 2016.

      • RabidHeat says:

        Sheesh man, it doesn’t mean he can’t suggest it!

  7. Indyfan says:

    It’s in bad taste. It’s going to be full of repeats anyway. Happy for his fans, feel bad for his immediate family.

    I know most of his story anyway. I really don’t know what else can be said outside of Bret’s book, the Hart foundation documentary and Brets Documentary.

    • J says:

      Bad Taste the only one who had bad taste is his bitter greedy wife. Bret and The Hart Family support it however so It’s anything but that. He deserves too be remembered right

  8. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    Can’t wait to see the match listing for this DVD. Owen had a lot of great matches in his career. It’s about time Owens career and life is taught to another audience of people who never got to see him perform. It’s a complete SHAME his work was trying to be hidden away from the very industry he loved.

  9. Mark Markson says:

    The documentary will be interesting, but I fear the matches will be full of matches that are available on other DVD sets.

  10. THOMAS says:

    @WOLFGANG STACH, you were never one of Owen Hart’s closest friends at all because you did not know him at all personally.

  11. Owen’s family. Where are the comments of Martha, Oje and Athena? They KNEW Owen’s real thoughts. I was one of his closest friends. And I am pretty sure that most of the things on this DVD are not closer to the truth than the moon is to the earth. WWE just wants to make a lot of money out of his name but they will NEVER be close to the truth about his death. They even did not have the decency informing Martha about the DVD. How cheap is that.

    • Kenny says:

      Owen’s family is going to be on there. Not his wife and kids, but he had other family. It’s a fair thing for them to say.

      I don’t know what the content of the DVD is, so I really can’t say anything about something I don’t know anything about.

      I have no idea what will be said about Owen’s death. I watched from the outside as that whole mess played out, but being her friend, you may have better knowledge about what went on that didn’t make the news reports. I don’t expect any kind of admission on their part, but I expect to see sincerity–like him or not, Vince McMahon is still human (even if he makes us question that often).

      I was a big fan of Owen. I never knew him, but I watched him for years as a kid and throughout my teens. I’m definitely picking up the DVD.

      I think it was quite douchey that they didn’t at least notify Martha about it. I don’t think there’s any defense on their part that could make it any less douchey.

    • J says:

      Sounds like you’re just another bitter person

  12. Alex says:

    ssssssssweeeeeet!!!!

  13. stollar says:

    Owen was overrated.

    • LP1 says:

      I wouldn’t say overrated. For his generation he was a very solid worker. By today’s standards he’d be a phenomenal worker.

      One thing I have to mention though, being a fan all through Owen’s WWF career (1988-1999), during that timeframe I never heard anyone say that Owen was their absolute favorite wrestler. Whenever conversations would take place about who people’s favorite wrestlers were, I never heard his name mentioned. Everyone respected him, for sure, but I never heard anyone say he was at the top of their list of all time favorite wrestlers. It wasn’t until after he passed away that I heard people started saying that. I don’t know if it was the emotion and shock of what happened to him, but the first time I ever heard anyone say he was their favorite wrestler was in an AOL chat room a few days after his passing.

      Now I’m not knocking Owen at all. I’m not saying. He wasn’t the favorite wrestler of some fans. I’m just saying I never heard anyone say it before he passed. It got to a point where I felt people were being phony. I remember arguing with a few people online saying “Where you all a few months ago when he was still alive? No said anything about him. Now he dies and all of a sudden he’s your hero.” It felt disrespectful in a way. Now today I hear tons of people saying Owen was their absolute favorite wrestler of all time. If that’s true then fine, but I hope people really mean it and aren’t just saying it to get some sort of positive reaction out of it.

  14. Lemo says:

    The most anticipated blu ray of all time. A dream come true.

    • RCS1988 says:

      It’s coming out on DVD as well, you jump to say Blu-ray as if it’s only coming out on Blu-ray only.

      • Mark Markson says:

        I’m guessing it’s because he’s getting the blu-ray. Not to hate on the DVD. If you own a blu-ray player, I think you should get the blu-ray due to the blu-ray exclusives.

  15. Nicolas Hébert says:

    2 hours documentary!!! ALL RIGHT!!! A must buy for everyone. Can’t wait for the matches listing!
