Jim Ross On Why Owen Hart Befriended The Ultimate Warrior… Martha Hart forgives The Hart family

Owen Hart and The Ultimate Warrior OWEN HART’S widow Martha has revealed that she has forgiven the WWE for her husband’s death. While speaking on the Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross discussed The Ultimate Warrior once again. He brought up how Owen Hart tried to be friends with Warrior.

 

The Canadian tragically died aged 34 in 1999 after an equipment malfunction caused him to suffer a fatal fall during his ring entrance at the Over the Edge pay-per-view event.

Owen’s brother, the legendary Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, has also called for his late sibling to be recognised alongside him.

Yet the former two-time Intercontinental champion’s widow Martha won’t ever allow it as she still blames WWE for his death.

And in an interview with CBSSports to promote the episode, Martha slammed the idea of Owen entering the Hall of Fame.

But despite the horrendous ordeal, the 53-year-old has since claimed she’s forgiven everyone surrounding Owen’s death and the events afterward.

She added: “At the end of it all, I’ve forgiven all of them, really.

“The Hart family, Vince McMahon, I don’t hold any grudges.

“I hope life has been kind to all of them. My life hasn’t been easy, and I certainly wouldn’t wish harm on anyone… Some damage in life is irreparable. You can’t fix it. It’s done.

“Again, you can forgive people, but it doesn’t mean you have to befriend them and be associated with them. At the same time, I don’t wish them any harm, and I hope their lives turned out well.

“That’s the casualties of war. They made their choices and have to live with them. Part of that is not having a relationship with me or Owen’s children. That was their choice, not mine.”

During a recent episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke on the issues that The Ultimate Warrior had backstage and how Owen Hart tried to befriend him. Here’s what he had to say:

Owen liked everybody, Owen could also see when somebody was struggling. Owen was willing to help anybody and he saw that Warrior had potential and could draw everybody money. Owen was trying to be a great teammate and help this guy be better accepted by his peers.
