WWE news: Owen Hart's brother hints at how Owen can get in WWE Hall of Fame

One of the people that many within the WWE want to see in the WWE Hall of Fame is Owen Hart, the younger brother of Bret "The Hitman" Hart. However, thanks to Owen's widow Martha, the chances of that are unlikely. According to on Jan. 20, Owen's brother Smith Hart has figured out a way to get his brother into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Smith said that the WWE just needs to induct the Hart Foundation as a unit into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The big problem with getting Owen Hart into the WWE Hall of Fame is because, after he tragically died in a fall to the ring in 1999, the rights to his name and likeness was left to his widow Martha Hart. Because Owen died in the WWE, while performing, she has always held a grudge and blames them for his death.

Martha has refused to allow them to use Owen's name and likeness for anything new. The WWE can still use the footage of him in old matches, but for the WWE Hall of Fame, they need Martha's permission and she has refused up to now.

However, Smith said that the WWE just needs to induct the Hart Foundation and have it include all the main members to get Owen Hart in through a loophole. The men that would be included at Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, Jimmy Hart, Owen Hart, Davey Boy Smith and Brian Pillman.

Smith said this would have the WWE Hall of Fame use the name "Hart Foundation," and therefore get around using Owen Hart's name at all, although it would be clear that he was part of the group.
