Edge Recalls The Night Owen Hart Passed, Discusses Their Match At Breakdown In 1998

WWE Hall of Famer Edge was a recent guest on Inside the Ropes to talk about the late Owen Hart following Hart’s Dark Side of the Ring special from Vice. Highlights are below.

Their match at Breakdown 1998:

He had a little bit of a sore groin that night, he was all taped up, and I had all these ideas because I’d dreamt of wrestling Owen Hart. He was one of the people when I would be driving or I’d be daydreaming or I’d be sitting in class and I’d be thinking “right Owen and I could do this, we could do that, or what if we did this or what if we did that” So now I have the opportunity, so I pitch all these ideas….and he was like “cool let’s do it” and we came back after the match and he said “man that was fun, I actually got to wrestle” That was a huge compliment. I’ll never forget that.

Remembering the night Owen died:

We’d actually left the building because we weren’t on the show and I think Luna called Dave (Gangrel) because we were riding together and told us and we went to the hospital. Jeff was the only one there and we just sat. We knew but we just sat there. We sat there for hours just thinking that can’t be real, how is that real? Even to this day, it just doesn’t seem real.
