I preferred it when he was sort of a second-tier character, tag-team partner etc, when they tried to push him with all these kind of angles, eg buffoon or antagonist, it was a bit forced

His stuff with Bret was fantastic, and he made the most of the Stone Cold incident, but otherwise yeah know what you mean

but that Stone Cold stuff seemed really off-colour, do you not think? The T-shirt about breaking his neck etc when he actually did grievously injure him. I wasn’t sure how much of that stuff was pushed on him.

He’s a 4 from me, insanely talented and charismatic but never quite made it on the main event level, and regardless of his career being cut tragically short, still never had a truly legendary career.

His stuff in Japan in early 90s was amazing though and showed what he could do

that was just a heel being a heel no? He obviously didn’t mean to injure Austin but he did and I assume got the ok from him

Fantastic worker. Was ripped off to an absolutely criminal extent, seems like everyone did his shit decades after him, yer Eddies and Benoits, Storms etc just lifted him wholesale

dunno… Austin was pissed because he apparently never visited him in hospital.

Have otherwise heard nothing but good things about him (Hart) as a person, so that whole thing was weird, idk.

It’s quite awkward hearing Austin talk about Owen really, you can tell there’s still resentment there. I’d probably be similar if someone broke my neck but at the same time it’s like Austin did end up doing alright at the end of it all, to put it mildly.

Love him. Thought he could play any character
Can be the loveable underdog , the smug heel (you don’t have two Slammies), the hateful heel.

His and Jarrett as a tag team were suprisingly effective

Big fat 5 - the charater of Owen Hart is truly one of my fav wrestling things ever. So funny… he’s also an incredible in ring performer and story teller. The fact he didn’t take himself so seriously made him super endearing and everyone in the dang locker room clearly loved him.

So fucking tragic that he had to go out because creative wanted him to have a gimmicky entrance… such a fucking shame

That match with Bulldog in Berlin on Raw is low key one of the greatest matches in Raw history

Also the best running joke in WWF history was Owen Hart & The Slammy Awards


  • Biggest Rat 1994
  • Squared Circle Shocker 1996
  • Best Bow Tie 1997 (stolen)

The best thing is hes not wearing a bowtie when he accepts the award for Best Bow Tie :smiley:

I’m gonna say 5.
Tremendous wrestler, fantastic heel and the whole family feud was brilliant.
Heck I even thought he was great when he was teaming with Koko B Ware

Was just trawling old videos and found this absolute gem. Both lads on top form, in their primes, outstanding work all round. Lawler and Macho Man adding fantastic colour too. Highly recommend.

Daniel Bryan was basically doing the exact Owen Hart routine beat for beat twenty years after this and it made him the hottest commodity in wrestling.

Fantastic ability, especially in the late 80s where he really showed up the establishment with true agility (up until then agility meant they would climb up the ropes occasionally or throw in the odd dropkick)

Desperately unlucky to be wrestling in the gimmick era. He only really ever got to show his true ability when he worked with his brother around 1994 and he shoulld have been leading the company by the 21st century.

Knew very little about Owen until recently, but recent OSW has made me a fan. 4/5, prefer him to Bret. Don’t @ me.
