Mark Henry wants Owen Hart inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame — and he made a public plea during his induction speech asking the wrestler’s widow to allow for it to happen.
Henry mentioned the Hart family during his speech, specifically Owen, and began to get emotional. He then said “Martha,” asked the camera to zoom on him and continued: “This is not from the company. This is not from other wrestlers. This is from his other brother. He needs to be here.”
For those unaware, Martha sued the WWE in 2010 and said it was “morally, ethically and legally wrong for the WWE to seek profit from Owen’s death.” They settled out of court years later, but it’s believed that she has denied the idea of an induction.
Henry finished his plea saying, “I’d love to be able to look down one day and see Oje able to be among us. It’s his birthright.” This is in reference to Owen’s now 26-year-old son.
