OWEN HART - FAQ
When Bret Hart left the company, Owen Hart was still in WWF or he left and came back (what happened did he leave?) - but his career ended in WWF, now the question is why didn't Owen leave and not come back like Bret?
Owen was always under contract with the WWF, he just walked out temporarily when Bret got screwed. Bret tried to get Owen out of the WWF but Vince wouldn't give him his release. According to Bret, Vince kept Owen in the WWF "to screw with Bret." Bret tried to get him out but Vince threatened to sue him if he would interfere with Owen's contract. In other words, Owen was pretty much locked in.
