Damn one of my favorite wrestlers...cant believe its been 10 years....

quite possibly the best wrestler to never win the world champion...

I still cant believe they continued the PPV....

Over the Edge was a professional wrestlingpay-per-view event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which took place onMay 23, 1999, at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.[sup][1][/sup] The show's seven matchesshowcased prominent WWF wrestlers, who acted out the franchise's stories in and out of the ring; however, the wrestling industry mostly remembered the showfor the accidental death of wrestler Owen Hart.

Owen Hart was scheduled to face The Godfather for the WWF Intercontinental Championship during theevent. Wrestling under his Blue Blazer gimmick, Hart was to make a superhero-like ring entrance, which would have seen him descend fromthe arena rafters into the ring. He was, however, released prematurely when the harness linemalfunctioned, and fell more than 70 feet (21 m) into the ring and died.[sup][2][/sup][sup][3][/sup] Criticism later arose over theWWF's decision to continue the show after Hart's accident.[sup][4][/sup] In court, the Hart family sued the organization, contending that poor planning of thedangerous stunt caused Owen's death. WWF settled thecase out of court, paying US$18 million to the Hartfamily.[sup][5][/sup][sup][6][/sup]

I don't think there ever was one because majority of the cameras were focused on the titantron

He wanted out of wrestling. If anything he would have been a firefighter which is what he always wanted to be. R.I.P.
