    WWE legend Bret Hart appeared on a podcast last week where he accused the widow of his late brother of trying to erase his brother’s wrestling legacy rather than keep it alive.


    Hart’s brother, Owen, died during a WWE pay-per-view match in 1999 after falling to his death while he was being lowered into the ring from the rafters of the Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo. Owen Hart fell 78 feet to his death. Martha Hart, Owen’s wife, reportedly was awarded $18 million in a settlement with the company over her husband’s death.


    Bret Hart accused the widow of completely separating herself from the company, while the WWE has kept his brother out of their Hall of Fame and off its merchandising as well.


    “I think Martha, Owen's widow, she's a very obtuse, square-headed person. I think she's done more to erase my brother Owen's memory than she ever did to remember him,” Hart said on CBS Sports’ “In This Corner” podcast. I think it really bothers me that the fans that loved Owen so much didn't get a chance to remember him. You do these kind of things for people are here, left to remember them.


    “I mean Owen, it would never matter to him if he was in the Hall of Fame but I think that you know it would mean a lot to different family members in my family. I know Mark Henry as an example gave a strong speech or talk this year about getting Owen into the Hall of Fame and I totally agree,” Hart said.
    Hart also questioned what the WWE Hall of Fame really means, noting that The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith and Demolition weren’t inducted, while Dynamite Kid is.


    “You look at some of the people in the Hall of Fame and some of these celebrities in there and Owen to me personally not being in the Hall Of Fame, there's a lot of people who belong in the Hall of Fame who are not in it,” Hart said.


    “If it turns out that the WWE is going to keep becoming Hall of Fame that caters to suck-ups and people that are in the company that they owe a favor to who never contributed to the business as wrestlers I question the whole Hall of Fame itself and I wonder if there will ever be a real Hall Of Fame that caters to just the wrestlers for their contributions.”


    Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006.

    In the ring, Bret was 'The Excellence Of Execution'



    Outside the ring? 'The Excellence Of Persecution'.

    I was fortunate to meet the Hart family on more than one occasion many years ago, they were first class people in my opinion and treated everyone with respect i witnessed on multiple occasions. This was a few years before Brett's fights with the WWF/WWE and Owen's passing that was a terrible accident and tragedy

    Beej appears accurate in his statement

    He had a stroke in 2002 fwiw. Result of the brutal concussion he suffered in the ring.

    Never gonna be the same after something like that.

    Jim Neidhart still cracks me up. Picturing him pulling on that goatee with that loony and crazed laugh.

    Bret always had those same match types early in his singles career. Being a face, always winning ethically. He finally became interesting in the attitude era against Michaels and Austin.
