I was pretty young when Owen died, but I still remember watching Over The Edge with my uncle that night. It's hard to believe it's been 20 years, but I think we should look back and remember him. I've gone back on the network and seen a lot of the stuff I couldn't remember, or never saw before. Dude was an amazing talent and it's such a shame we lost him so soon. We love you Owen!​

Love Owen, always one of my favorite guys to watch in the 90s and one of the better heels of the "New Generation" era. Honestly think WWE missed the boat by having him get buried in that HHH feud instead of challenging Shawn for the belt at the December IYH or the Royal Rumble in '98 bc he was over af after the Screwjob. Favorite matches of his are against Bret in the best cage match in history at SummerSlam 94, vs Bret at WrestleMania X (best PPV opener in WWE history easily), against The British Bulldog on an early '97 Raw (wanna say in February, and also the Canadian Stampede tag match where he got the winning pinfall.

Was just 18 when Owen passed away and was totally in shock watching the PPV on TV at the time. Its one the most tragic losses of the last 20 years. He was a great performer and one of the most consistent and underrated of his era. Not to mention he brought so much joy to us fans and to his fellow wrestlers. He is sadly missed to this day. RIP.

It’s very rare that you hear stories of a wrestler being loved by every one of his contemporaries but that was Owen Hart. I’ve never heard a negative word about him. He was a great wrestler and an even better human being. We as fans and most importantly his family, lost him way too soon.

Definitely one of those guys who just had "it". He made wrestling look so damn easy. Also was a great performer in terms of character. Obviously I was only a baby when he died so I never got to see him live. Only have been able to watch him through videos and thought he was awesome. Definitely had so much more to give and it's an offense he's not in the hall of fame. Hopefully that'll come one day.
