I knew this was coming up soon and I just read Bret's book. He's was on a plane to somewhere when he got the call of the accident happening.
I'm not going to start the yearly "RIP" thing but I wanted to remember that even though I never got to meet Owen, or any of the Hart family other than Jim Neidhart for a quick picture, he sure left an impression on his family, friends, and fans.
That's so true. That's pretty much for any character. What's interesting for a character (babyface or heel) is how they deal with adversity. LIke you said it adds vulnerability and therefore some depth.
