    Owen to the 2014 HOF?

    Credit to the Huffington Post (click here for the link)


    HARTFORD, Conn. The widow of World Wrestling Entertainment performer Owen Hart has settled her lawsuit against the WWE over royalties and the use of her late husband's image.

    The settlement was announced Wednesday by Martha Hart and confirmed by the WWE. Hart hasn't disclosed any details. A spokesman for the WWE says he has no comment.

    Owen Hart died in 1999 while being lowered into the wrestling ring at Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo. He was 34.

    Martha Hart sued in June 2010, alleging the WWE didn't pay royalty payments owed to Owen Hart's estate and violated a contract restricting the use of his name and likeness.

    Former WWE executive Linda McMahon ran unsuccessfully as a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut in 2010 and 2012.
    You know, I've only seen a small handful of Owen matches, but I think it's universally agreed that he was a very decent hand in the ring and was an amazing family man. It'd be good to see his name honoured on television. I'm sure it won't mean much to his family, but certainly a lot of his die-hard fans would like to see him recognised for his contributions in an official manner.

    Everytime they use Owens likeness a new lawsuit pops up fr Martha, I don't think he will get in anytime soon until her family can move on

    Add him to this class. They need a posthumous induction. Send a jet to Calgary, pick up all the Hart family, and fly them to New York. Brets already gonna be there.
