Re: Owen Hart wins WWF title
It's not acknowledged just like Jericho beating HHH for the title on Raw in 2000 isn't acknowledged, as they reversed that decision.
I would guess it's because the match was "restarted".....Bret was not given an immediate rematch or anything....they threw out the ending from the match and it continued.
As an aside, it's too bad that Bret feud was Owen's only real main event run. He dropped right down to the midcard and tag division after that feud was over, and basically stayed there for the rest of his career. He should've been a main event fixture for the next several years. He was very over as a heel, and awesome in the ring, and effective on the mic. Once Michaels went face, Owen should've been the top heel.
