- At one point, WWE officials had been discussing inducting Owen Hart into the 2013 Hall of Fame class as a part of a settlement with Martha Hart.

WWE reached out to Martha about settling her lawsuit against the company and inducting Owen but she turned the offer down. There is a feeling that eventually the lawsuit will be thrown out but that may take some time.

Other names recently discussed for induction include the late “Big Bossman” Ray Traylor, Mick Foley, Bob Backlund and Kevin Nash. Nothing is set in stone and after the first of the year, WWE will be sending out ballots within the company to get suggestions on names to be inducted.

    @Diesel—-I am totally with you on this one. And think how proud his kids could be if they could tell all their freinds that their Father is in the WWE HOF.

    @barry horowitz, you got your facts wrong there. after he died WWE wanted to put him in but his brother turned round and said that Randy said he would only go into the HOF if they inducted him with his brother and father as well. Nobody knows if Randy actually said that or not, but like Owen Hart, until Savages brother says Randy can go in on his own, he is unlikely to go in as there is absolutely no reason his brother should go in ahead of so many other more worthy wrestlers throughout the years.

    Vince should have Martha join the kiss my ass club

    @Trolol

    Not that it’s any of your business, but as a matter of fact I have (2 members of family in fact). Yeah it hurts for a long time & never fully goes away, but we eventually learn to accept that and we move on with our lives & Martha should do the same. But erasing Owens legacy & memories out of spite isn’t the way to go about it, we older fans were fortunate enough to watch him regardless of whether it was live on PPV or tv, whereas since Martha’s continued to throw a tantrum & continue to hate the WWE the only way the kids of today will know anything about him is via YouTube or old wrestling tapes/DVDs which is quite frankly madness. Owen deserves to be in the Hall Of Fame, and it’s a damn shame that the only thing that’s preventing that is his wife! She’s just after money and if she cares more about that than her husbands legacy & the fans then shame on her.

  • Zedd

    Hope Bossman gets in,One of my all time favorites. He was a great heel and had an awesome theme.

  • barry horowitz

    I meant to say isnt*

  • barry horowitz

    The fact that Randy Savage is in the HOF and doesnt even seem to be considered makes the HOF a complete joke.

  • Step Brothers

    Bam Bam Bigeolo is a must

  • Trolol

    @Diesel
    You’ve clearly never lost anyone close to you judging by your comments but it’s not anywhere near that easy and it’s not being spoiled. It’s her right so stfu

  • Diesel

    Seriously???

    Yes we’re all sad he’s no longer with us, but Martha really is coming across as a spoilt brat. I mean come on, it’s been 14 years since his death & Owen’s kids aren’t going stay kids forever. I mean what better way to remember him than to have him immortalised in the HOF? But by wiping everything about him from the WWE and acting like he never existed is pretty pathetic.

    Grow up Martha

  • Bastion Booger

    I like many of you loved Owen Hart and loved his matches he was a brilliant worker, but at the same time i can understand where Martha is coming from she lost her husband to a tragic accident and still blames Vince for that accident because Owen was forced back into that blue blazer gimmick. I cant say i wouldnt do the same if i was in her shoes thats not something you can easily get over no matter how much time passes

  • yofitz

    Dear Martha Hart,

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE of mind,

    please let Vince sell Owen Hart DVDs featuring classic matches such as Owen vs Bret Hart steel cage match for the WWE title from Summerslam 1994, Owen vs Goldust vs Triple H for the IC title from Raw 1997, Owen vs Badd Ass Billy Gunn for the European title from Raw 1998, Owen vs The British Bulldog to crown the 1st ever European champion from Raw 1997, Owen vs Stone Cold Kiss My Ass match from Summerslam 1997 and Owen and The Rock vs Stone Cold & Undertaker for the tag titles from Raw 1998.

    Sincerely,

    Owen Fans.

  • Stevie P

    If you want to really understand Owen Hart, he didn’t want to wrestle anymore. He just wanted to make enough to take care of his family and that was it. He hated what the Attitude Era was and his punishment was becoming the Blue Blazer again. I can’t blame Martha Hart at all. As much as I want Owen in the HoF, if it was my wife that they killed with their PoS rig, I wouldn’t let them use her likeness in anything either. Especially when all they wanted to do was quit the business and raise their kids. Give her a break.

    I’m against Nash being inducted solo.. NASH and Hall need to be inducted in the same year.

  • Wellsy

    You can’t blame Martha Hart. Why would you want the company that killed your loved one to profit from his life?

    It’s easy to say “just let it go” if it’s not you having to do so.

  • Crocop

    If you read Bret’s auto-bio, Martha really hated the industry and wanted Owen to leave several times. They may have made plans for that to happen, but tragedy struck. I wouldn’t be so quick to judge her.

  • yofitz

    I dont care about her family.

    I want an Owen Hart DVD with the classic Owen Hart vs Bad Ass Billy Gunn for the european title in 1998 on in!

    That match was awesome! Billy should’ve won the belt though …

  • Mark

    I agree Nash should be inducted. In relation to Martha Hart , there comes a time where she has got to forgive and move on with her life. Im sure the rest of the Hart family would like to see Owen inducted

  • Territories

    You guys are a bunch of sick F*cks her husband died in the ring really god damn WWE should be giving her anything she wants are all of you going to help pay for and raise Owen’s kids with her?

  • Buttercastle

    It sounds like she’s just been exploiting his death for money, as if shes’s just waiting for WWE to make the right offer before she lets them say his name at a ceremony. She didn’t marry for money at all!

  • yofitz

    I hate you, Martha Hart.

  • Stevie P

    Nash has gotta be inducted.

  • hornswoggler from the chocolate factory

    DDP for sure!!!!!! I believe him and Bam Bam Bigelow should go in this year for sure considering its in Jersey!!!!
