The Altoona Mirror spoke with Bret "The Hitman" hard about his appearance at tonight's Big Time Wrestling live event in Altoona PA. Hart was asked about his brother Owen's tragic death in 1999. "After dealing with what happened with my brother Owen over the years, I've come to see it was a horrible accident, and I don't think Vince McMahon would want something like that to happen. It wouldn't be advantageous to anyone." "We were hurt by that, though. I don't think my dad ever got over what happened with Owen. It had a rebound effect with my dad and Davey. I think my dad and Davey would have lived a lot longer if not for Owen dying." Hart also discussed being at Raw this past fall when Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack. "It was quite stricken in the locker room, and it was a horrible feeling. It reminded people of what happened with Owen. It was stressful for everyone from Vince McMahon to you name it. Jerry was fighting for his life. His heart stopped for 20 minutes, but those paramedics kept pushing on his chest and really worked hard to save him. Everyone carried on. The WWE should have been applauded for finally doing things the right way." Hart also discussed reuniting with the Hart Foundation tonight, wrestling not being fun anymore in the 90s, wrestling in Altoona and more.
