If Martha Hart has a say, Owen Hart will never enter the WWE Hall of Fame. She recently called their hallowed ground garbage and Bret Hart responded.
Martha Hart Calls WWE Hall Of Fame Garbage
For over two decades, many have called for Owen Hart to enter the WWE Hall of Fame. The biggest issue was and remains his widow, Martha Hart.
Martha spoke to CBS and is still not happy with WWE or the Hart Family. She went to call the WWE Hall of Fame ‘garbage.’
“There’s always been this talk that, ‘Oh, we want to put Owen in the Hall of Fame,’” said Martha Hart to CBS. “Their Hall of Fame?”
“They don’t even have a Hallway of Fame. It doesn’t exist. There’s nothing. It’s a fake entity. There’s nothing real or tangible.”
“It’s just an event they have to make money. They put it on TV and have a celebration, and it’s just so ridiculous. I would never even entertain it. It’s garbage.”
Backstory About Owen Hart’s Death
Back at Over the Edge, Owen would fall roughly 70 feet while making an entrance from the rafters. Despite the accident, the pay per view finished.
Fans were told during the broadcast that Owen had passed away at a local hospital due to the accident. To this day, some claim Owen died on impact.
Martha sued WWE on two occasions. A wrongful death lawsuit was settled for $18 million in November 2000.
Then, in 2010, another lawsuit was filed for using Owen’s name and likeness in the Hart & Soul DVD. That was also settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money
For the first time in over 20 years, Owen merchandise was released. Although, the t-shirt is not being sold through WWE.
The relationship between WWE and Martha seems unfixable. It has been that way for so long, that the feeling like will not go away.
Bret Hart Comments
Owen’s older brother, Bret Hart, has pushed for Owen to enter the WWE Hall of Fame. He was able to forgive Vince McMahon.
As for Martha and Bret, they have a strained relationship. The more time that passes, the deeper the resent goes.
Bret was direct with the following message towards Martha’s recent comments.
“While I am not interested in engaging in any more media mudslinging between Martha and myself especially in light of a global pandemic, I will say that our fallout is multifaceted,” said Bret Hart. “To say that it only involved being able to access and use my WWE footage and photos for future projects would merely be an oversimplification and inaccurate. I will not comment any further on the matter.”
Some Fans Agree With Bret Hart
WWE fans saying Martha Hart “sold out” to Pro Wrestling Tees – even though all profits of Owen Hart merchandise will go to to the charitable Owen Hart Foundation – just because she refuses the WWE Hall of Fame, is a new low in this fandom. pic.twitter.com/avQGrpyiVf

Can you really blame Martha Hart for not wanting Owen Hart to be in the WWE Hall Of Fame. She might have forgiven them for what happened to her husband but those wounds and bad blood are hard to erase.

Martha hart & Vince McMahon do not like each other.
Lot of things have been said an done over the past 20 years.
As a result.
Owen hart is never going to go into the WWE hall of fame.
I’m cool with that.
I accepted that reality 20 years ago.
RIP Owen Hart.

Oh snap, Martha Hart is back to reiterating the fact that she will not accept a WWE Hall of Fame induction on behalf of Owen Hart. I respect her decision and I hope she sticks to it, but I thought she would fold by now.
