Definitely. You could see his stock wasn't very high at the time of his death, unfortunately. It's kind of hard to imagine the WWF ever throwing Owen the Title in 1999, 2000, or 2001, when they had so many white hot superstars and a plethora of mid carders ready to jump up when the time was right.

Probably just the fact that he died is what leads people to say those things. But did anyone honestly think that Owen was a future World Champion during his Blue Blazer feud with the Godfather? I highly doubt it.

Well apparently he was meant to get "The Game" gimmick, instead of HHH. Who knows what the course of time would have done for him. It's pretty hard to say.

It really is subjective at this point. Sure he was 34 and in the mid card but if Christian could become WHC at 37, I don't see why Owen couldn't have. Perhaps some people romanticize Owen because of his premature death and maybe I'm one of them. Call it whatever you want, I still think he would have become the first Undisputed Champion especially if he hadn't already become WWF Champion by then.

I can remember reading about this. Owen's one of those guys that would have made sense as a transitional champion.

I tend to agree.

As stated before the only real time Owen Hart could have been WWE champion was during his feud with Bret Hart because that was the highest he reached and after that he was behind a few others and got further and further away from the WWE title scene as the years went by in his career. There seems to be this thing with The IWC that when a wrestler dies during his career he becomes overrated to the point he is talked about as so much better than he really was and that is something that has happened more and more over the years with Owen Hart.

I'm not saying he wasn't good because he was but he didn't have the all round talent of Stone Cold Steve Austin or Shawn Michaels, the charisma and mic skills of The Rock or Scott Hall, the in ring ability of his brother Bret Hart and at that time Triple H or the size of Kevin Nash. During his best shot at being WWE champion the reality was he was behind Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall as well as Bret Hart and then once The Montreal Screwjob had happened he was behind Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Mick Foley, Triple H and Kane so there was always a good few people who were ahead of him.

I liked Owen Hart but he was a upper mid carder at best and if i was honest a very good mid carder who would always make a mid card title look important because he was able to have great matches. Very good in ring worker but ok mic skills and whilst a good heel he was never a great heel who could hold the WWE title and whilst he was better than people like Jeff Jarrett who has held multiple World titles and which i see that as saying more about those companies rather than the wrestler i just never saw Owen Hart as a WWE champion.

I knew this had happened because Bret mentions it in his book - but I hadn't seen it 'til now. Pretty cool to see someone have that small moment even though it gets taken away from them.

Jericho pinning HHH on Raw in 2000 is one of my favourite Raw moments ever even though it never stood because for those few minutes it was just unbelievable to see a guy that no one (at that time anyway) expected to ever be Champion pull one over on the top guy.

But anyway, as people have pointed out - it isn't in the record books because the match never finished there - it was restarted and therefore he wasn't officially a World Champion - although at least he got to feel like one, however briefly.

That would have been the perfect time to give him a 90 day run with the belt before dropping it back to Bret.
