The Night The World Lost Owen

This past weekend marked sixteen years since the tragic passing of Owen Hart. It’s one of those events in wrestling history that if you’re a life long fan of the sport, you remember exactly where you were, and what you were doing.   On May 23rd, 1999, I was just twelve years old.
