Source: Altoona MirrorAs noted earlier, The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart and Jimmy Hart) will be re-uniting at Big Time Wrestling's live event tonight in Altoona, PA. The Altoona Mirror spoke with "The Hitman" about tonight's show, who discussed his younger 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 [WWE owner] Vince [McMahon] would want something like that to happen," Hart admitted. "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," Hart said. "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. You can read the full interview by clicking here. You can also get more information about tonight's Big Time Wrestling event in Altoona here.
