Biography - A Short Wiki

Canadian professional wrestler known as the Blue Blazer and The Golden Nugget, who died after falling from the rafters during his entrance due to equipment malfunction. He was a two-time WWF Intercontinental Champion and a four-time WWF World Tag Team Champion. 

He was married to his wife Martha until his death, and together they had two children. His brother Bret Hart suspected his accident to be rigged.



“I’d come from the bottom of the barrel. Just Owen Hart getting out of the shadow of Bret Hart’s little brother. Everyone figured, this is a joke, Owen’s going to get squashed.” (Owen Hart)


“If Bret went in there and stunk the place out, then they probably wouldn’t have brought the little brother in. So just by being successful himself, it opened the door for me.” (Owen Hart)


“Some guys can do more talking in the ring, other guys do posing, body building, whatever the hell they do in the ring. But I don’t have the big body, and I’m not the big smooth talker, but I can get in the ring and wrestle.” (Owen Hart)


“The perks of working in Japan are that you might go for two weeks every three or four months, so you do work an abbreviated schedule. But you really make up for the abbreviated schedule by how hard you have to fight, how much you’ve got to be in shape.” (Owen Hart)


“Nobody really knows for sure who the Blue Blazer is, but like I said in my interview, there’s a little bit of the Blue Blazer in each and every one of us.” (Owen Hart)
