We reported yesterday that WWE is working on a new DVD and Blu-Ray documentary on the life and his legacy of Owen Hart which had the “full backing and support” of Martha Hart, widow of Owen.
It now transpires that Martha has not given her blessing for the project and told WrestlingDVDNews.com that she does NOT support nor endorse the WWE DVD and NEVER will.
The website released their own statement today apologising for the the undue stress yesterday’s factual error has caused Martha and her children.
Martha Hart's full statement:
“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.”
