WrestlingDVDNews.com, which broke the story on Thursday that WWE has started to work on a new documentary about the life and career of the late Owen Hart, was sent a statement by Martha Hart, the widow of Owen, that she does not endorse or support the release from WWE despite the report on Thursday stating otherwise.
“My children and I were unaware of this project until May 7, when it was brought to our attention by a friend who had read about it online. Contrary to your report, we do not back or support it in any way, nor has WWE requested our backing or support. From what little we know of the project, it seems to be another attempt to exploit Owen’s memory, and his tragic death, for commercial gain. We have resisted that kind of initiative for almost 16 years. If WWE really wanted to honor Owen’s legacy, it would just let him rest in peace.”
