The Ghost of Owen Hart

Blue Blazer
On May 23, 1999, Owen Hart, brother of WWE Hall-of-Famer Bret Hart, died at a WWE pay-per-view (then known as the WWF) event when he fell from the rafters attempting a wrestling gimmick. He was supposed to be lowered into the arena on a cable when the release mechanism had somehow been triggered, having him fall nearly 80 feet on the ring ropes and then into the ring. While he did not die immediately from the fall, he was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

In the years since his death, there have been multiple reports of sightings of (the ghost of) Owen Hart. Employees have claimed to have seen him in the rafters wearing the Blue Blazer costume he was wearing for his gimmick as well as the cable before he began the descent. There have also been reports of flickering lights and other power sources that seem to go on and off in some areas of the arena.

Owen Hart's death was an absolute tragedy for the wrestling world. For someone to lie about seeing the ghost of a person like Owen Hart would take a lot of nerve. However, it would not be the first time someone has. If he is haunting the Kemper Arena, it would make sense for him to be in the rafters, constantly reliving the events that led to his unfortunate demise. However, it would not make sense as it was known amongst the workers of WWF that he was afraid of heights, and had only done such a stunt very few times. The flickering lights and power losses could also be caused by faulty wiring or failing bulbs. But it is said that ghosts need energy to manifest and that they gather it from batteries and other appliances, so it could be Owen taking energy from the lights and outlets.

So, does the Kemper Arena still have someone performing there? There has been no way to prove if such a haunting exists as no one has attempted to investigate and have preferred to leave the issue alone. But someday, someone may try and evidence may be obtained to prove that Owen Hart's spirit may still be among us.

WWE Erase's Chris Benoit

The WWE is treating Chris Benoit like he never existed; The WWE seemingly erased Chris Benoit from history!

The URLs of nearly every page related to Benoit on the WWE web site have now redirected to the main page, WWE.com. For instance, this URL should be the Benoit bio page, but that page has been discarded. The WWE has also pulled Benoit’s DVD, action figures, and tee shirts from WWEshop.com. Wrestling fans are not stupid they won’t simply forget about all of Chris Benoit accomplishments in wrestling just because the WWE is playing deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to Chris Benoit.

It's obvious why the WWE doesn't want to be associated with Benoit, who killed his wife, his son and himself, but simply pretending he doesn't exist is the wrong way to go about it. A much better approach would be annotating the pages related to Benoit with information about the investigation, and with information about what the WWE has done to cut down on steroid use among its wrestlers. The Benoit story won't go away, and the WWE shouldn't pretend it will.
