Edge Reflects on Facing Owen Hart Early in his WWE Run

May 24, 2020 - by James Walsh

Edge recently looked back on his memories of Owen Hart during a new interview. The WWE Hall of Famer spoke with Inside the Ropes and talked about his experience facing Hart at 1998’s In Your House: Breakdown as well as when he learned of Hart’s death at Over the Edge. Inside the Ropes has released the video and a couple of highlights, which you can check out below: 

On facing Owen Hart at Breakdown: “He had a little bit of a sore groin that night, he was all taped up, and I had all these ideas because I’d dreamt of wrestling Owen Hart. He was one of the people when I would be driving or I’d be daydreaming or I’d be sitting in class and I’d be thinking ‘right Owen and I could do this, we could do that, or what if we did this or what if we did that’ So now I have the opportunity, so I pitch all these ideas….and he was like ‘cool let’s do it’ and we came back after the match and he said ‘man that was fun, I actually got to wrestle.’ That was a huge compliment. I’ll never forget that.” 

On the night Hart passed away: “We’d actually left the building because we weren’t on the show and I think Luna called Dave (Gangrel) because we were riding together and told us and we went to the hospital. Jeff was the only one there and we just sat. We knew but we just sat there. We sat there for hours just thinking that can’t be real, how is that real? Even to this day, it just doesn’t seem real.”
