Goodbye to the Hart of Wrestling
10 years ago. May 23rd 1999, Over The Edge. One of the biggest tragedies in wrestling took place. Owen Hart feel from over 70 feet. He hit a padded turnbuckle and died on impact. The show went on but whilst Owen was being treated, Jim Ross said "This is not part of the entertainment tonight.This is as real as real can be here." Owen was a bright talented and had a young family. It was and still is a shame. But the worst thing is that Wrestling is a sport plagued with death. Many great people have died to name a few who I have watched wrestle like: Davey Boy Smith, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit and Andrew ‘Test’ Martin. Although the wellness policy of WWE seems to be helping and also the help WWE provides in aftercare for its former superstars is good but will it ever be enough? Overall the main point of this article is that every time you watch wrestling remember the Heroes who have pased on to the Hall of Fame in the sky.
