- JBL posted the following on Facebook remembering the night Owen Hart passed away:

“13 years ago Owen Hart passed away tragically, I remember going in and telling Undertaker who was going over his match. Ron and I had dressed with Owen that day in KC and later we were questioned but never testified in the lawsuit. Vince was overwhelmed and gave us option of finishing show or not wrestling-we decided to wrestle. There wasn’t a right decision. A wonderful man that is sorely missed. So many great memories about Owen, so many great ribs-he was the best. He and Davey were quite the duo:) RIP to a great friend.

Owen dressed with Ron and I that day in KC, was a small dressing room so we were there during all the discussion about the stunt-but had nothing to offer that merited us testifying in the lawsuit. We wrestled shortly after Owen died, I don’t think right after I think it was a couple of matches later-can’t remember. Was tough because we knew he had died but no one knew what to do-to wrestle or not to wrestle, Vince was great and told everyone that they could do what they wanted-no pressure, he really didn’t know what to do…no one did. Owen was a perfect family man and role model-one of the great ones.”

- Believe it or not there is much more interest in the Over The Limit PPV in Japan because John Laurinaitis is on the card. In the 90s he was a big foreign star for All Japan. The event airs on March 31st over there.
