I'm talking about Owen Hart. The man was gold vs. Bret in the mid-90's as the crybaby brother who's seething with jealousy. One of my favorite Owen moments, just cause it came to my head just now --

In 1996, During a Raw qualifying match (I believe), Owen (in full arm cast) interfered in Marc Mero's match by jumping off the apron and nailing the "Wildman". -- At the KOTR PPV, Owen was guest commentator and they showed the clip and Owen had me in stitches when he says "Look, see right there I tripped and fell off the apron". The reason I was rolling was cause in the clip, right after Owen jumps off the apron and nails Mero with the cast, he gets right up, looks at the camera laughing and points at his cast.

"I tripped and fell off the apron". Classic.

Anybody else remember this, or have something else to add, feel free.

I was there live when Vince called out Owen on Raw five years or so ago. It was right after Bret split, and Owen had been off television for a few weeks, but started coming through the crowd to attack Shawn Michaels. Vince, in an ugly yellow suit, called him out to the ring. Owen came out to one of the biggest pops I've heard from a live crowd. He played the part of the "fed-up, tired-of-the-political-crap" anti-hero very well. Truly one of a kind. I fell off my chair trying to get a picture of him as he walked by me.

I think I had that KOTR PPV on tape, but that was f'n funny! My favorite thing will always be the way he "won" his Slammys.

Owen was definitley one of the best heels ever. I never got into Owen when he first went to the WWF (in the early 90's. I'm not counting his days as Blue Blazer in the 80's). I knew he was good in the ring, but he lacked a spark that made me think he was anything special. Then he turned heel. He quickly became my favorite wrestler because I was so damn entertained by him. He was every bit as good of an actor as he was a wrestler.

My favorite moments of Owen as a heel was when he teamed with British Bulldog in '97. The gimmick of Owen always trying to stay in the spotlight and keep Bulldog in the background was classic stuff. RVD and Sabu did an awesome job with the gimmick (RVD: "The only question left, is how is RVD gonna' carry all five belts, and his partner too?" HA!), but no one will ever be as good as the originals- Owen and Davey.

My favorite Owen moment was when he was the Blazer in late '98. The Raw after he was unmasked he came on and said that the image was doctored. JR replied, "But Raw was live last week." Owen, without missing a beat replied "Exactly, LIVE image doctoring." And with a deep sigh followed up with,"technology today."

I liked him as a heel but hated the sillyness they forced on him. My favority Owen memories are of his team with Yokozuna as well as the Bulldog, and his 1997 run as a heel where he helped cement Austin (while breaking his neck). Of course, the Black Hart thing was the best. He could have been main event with that gimmick but SOMEONE didn't allow it.

I don't even know who I'm implying here...

I know people usually get more credit when they die, but it seriously must be said; Owen was a main event talent. I don't really know why, but there has to be some kind of excuse why he never made it past 1994 in the cage vs. Bret. He was main event through and though. One of the classic heels of our time...

Remember when Owen was at his weaseliest (who knows if its a word, but what the hell) at Survivor Series '94 when he got the towel thrown in to get the World Title put on bow-tie Bob, that should have cemented Owen as a main eventer. Unfortunately, two days later the whole focus of the company was altered with the New Era, and we know who ran things from that point on.

One of favorite Owen memories was during the 1997 Slammys, he told Bulldog, "You may have won the European championship, but I won a Slammy."

Classic.

Beating brother Bret at WM-X in an amazing match.
Thus FINALLY being equal in his own mind..
Then the look he has on his face when Bret wins the title and is hoisted..amazing..

The man was a great heel indeed and an excellent wrestler.
I think Kurt Angle does a good 21st century version of the man.
