You could tell he had little direction with his character. His workrate was great, but his last great moments were with the Nation.

Re: Owen Hart had go away heat in 99

I watched him since his days in Stampede. I have no doubt that between his natural abilities, and the infamous survivor series incident involving his brother Bret, he would have been world champion sooner then later. I never felt he had the wrong kind of heat ever! I was a huge fan and admit I could maybe be a bit biased on this topic.

Re: Owen Hart had go away heat in 99

Owen rarely had a bad match (can you name one?) He even had a solid outing with the otherwise lame Steve Blackman.

What ruined Owen's career was his accident with Austin. Austin refused to work any kind of program with him after that. In the Attitude era working a program with Austin was crucial to get into the main event scene. If Austin was never injured then things would have been different. I would have had Owen and Austin finish their feud at Bad Blodd.Then Austin goes to Montreal as a bona fide babyface and faces The Rock. I would then have Owen face HHH at Montreal instead. Then later I would have Owen face Austin for the title at Summerslam 98. I would leave the Highway to Hell match for Breakdown and have the triple threat match with Taker and Kane at Judgement Day. So yes Austin's injury changed a lot of things.

IMO Owen was too nice to ever be a main event-er. He was a good wrestler but lacked charisma to be one of the main guys; especially with Rock, Stone Cold and Mankind - 3 large characters.

The Blue Blazer was ridiculous though, he could have been pushed in a segment with Bulldog had it not been for the accident.

I agree 100 percent.

Blame that on the Kliq IMO.

No he didn't.

That is all I will say on this topic.

Re: Owen Hart had go away heat in 99

Nope.

During his final months, he and Jarrett were a great tag team and got great reactions and good matches. Go away heat? I think not.

And no, he didn't have main event appeal and when he was alive, no one said he did, even though a few said so after his death.
