After years of debate, years of fighting, years of unruly court battles the drama between the widow of legendary WWE Superstar Owen Hart, Martha Hart and World Wrestling Entertainment has finally come to an end. The Lawsuit that Martha Hart has had filed for over 10 years is now considered a closed case as of April 15th. Both sides have come to a confidential settlement to close the door on this ugly battle between the WWE and Martha Hart. Since this has all ceased, what will this mean for the legacy of Owen Hart?
For years now, fans have demanded and pleaded publicly with the WWE to induct Hart into the WWE Hall of Fame. However, due to the active lawsuit between Martha Hart and the WWE, inducting Owen into the Hall of Fame wouldn’t have been possible, since Martha was unwilling to sign off on the induction agreement. Depending on what the terms of the agreement was between the WWE and Martha, there could be a good chance that we can see Owen inducted into the 2014 Hall of Fame.
If this were to take place, Owen’s induction would come at a perfect time since WrestleMania 30 will be take place on the year of the 15th anniversary since his death. In addition, it will be the 20-year anniversary since his victory over his brother Bret “The Hitman” Hart at WrestleMania 10. Giving the level of emotion that this holds, this induction would be very noteworthy since all of the Harts will be in attendance. Bret would be the ideal person to accept his induction since the fans would be much more accepting that decision instead of Martha.
