Today marks the 15 year anniversary of the death of Owen Hart

Today, May 23, marks the 15th anniversary of the death of Owen Hart, who tragically passed away during the Over The Edge pay-per-view after a stunt gone wrong.

The youngest of the Hart family, Owen was participating in the show as the Blue Blazer, and was supposed to make a grand entrance being lowered from the rafters of the Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri.

After he was lowered a few feet from the top in the darkness as a video package was airing, something went wrong and Owen fell down 70 feet, hitting the turnbuckle and bouncing back inside the ring. Medical personnel attended to Hart immediately but it was too late. Hart didn’t die on impact believe it or not, but passed away a few minutes later inside the ring. He was transported to the Truman Medical Center in Kansas City where he was then pronounced dead on arrival.

The memory of that night still haunts a lot of people who worked that pay-per-view 15 years later and they will probably never vanish.

We compiled a timeline of events from that unforgettable night which you can read here.
