Owen Hart Ribs?

Anybody got some good ones? I mean they're some well known ones, but would love to hear a bunch. Does anyone know if there's a site with them?

Re: Owen Hart Ribs?

Val Venis and the rest of the roster checked into a hotel when some bloke tries to get Val to sign a load of pics which he was obviously gonna sell when Owen is behind Val. Val checks into his room and nods off to sleep. Just as he does this he gets a phone call from the bloke and says about the pictures again. Val basically puts the phone down.

Little while longer Val gets another call from the bloke who angers Val who goes downstairs to have it out with the bloke. Owen is at the bottom of the stairs with someone else and Val asks if they had seen the bloke. Owen replied he just ran out of the door. Val couldn't find him.

6 months later when Edge and Val are just about to go on live TV on Off The Record (I think it was), Owen texts Edge to tell him to tell Val it was him phoning him all along

I believe that was late 90s and texting was pretty popular back then.

Re: Owen Hart Ribs?

This is one from JBL's Facebook;


Owen Hart was the biggest ribber of all time. Davey Boy was so scared of Owen he would register under a different name in his hotel room-and they were brothers in law and travel companions. Davey was just as bad.
Owen lived to both rib and save money. Owen would travel with fans, stay with fans and eat with fans to save money-I never thought Owen was cheap, he wasn’t-but it was a game to see how little money he could spend on the road.
Davey’s favorite line, “I wasn’t even there, it was Owen” was pretty much his standard answer to anything.
I traveled the circuit with Owen and Davey in six man tags with the Godwins and Bart Gunn. Owen would call out spots to fans while Davey Boy was calling the same spot in the ring. Owen would talk to fans the entire match critiquing Davey Boy’s moves. There was not one sane moment with those two. Davey would just laugh; he thought Owen was hilarious even when Owen was ribbing him.
Both could go though. Davey and Brett had one of best matches I have ever seen in Berlin and Owen was one of the best-they just loved to rib. They both were born for this business.
Owen loved to get the muscle guys to press him, he would then hang on to them where they could never get him up-Davey would then come in and press Owen over his head several times and Owen would yell how strong Davey was.
The Godwin’s pigs somehow ended up in Vince’s office one day and as always, Davey explained, “I wasn’t even there.” Davey’s bulldog was given a laxative one day at TV, needless to say the suspect list involved only one person.
Clarence Mason, remember the attorney, was tortured by these guys in one loop we were on so much so he got to where he wouldn’t come into the ring. One day as he was holding the tag titles up on the apron, with his back to ring-Las Vegas was the city- I hit the ropes by him and knocked the belts into the stands along with Clarence. Needless to say the match, Owen and Davey felt the need to outdo me after that, turned into a ribfest as most of them did.
To give Owen credit he deserves, he always carried bags and never checked anything so he could get off plane quicker to see his family when he got off of road. He and Davey were awesome guys both.
The best story I have heard on Owen was when Chief Jay Strongbow was the agent and as WWE often does-they wanted everything real, as it would be in a shoot. So, Chief asked Owen if he would do that in a fight and Owen’s response, “No, I would hop on one leg whooping like an Indian!” It took Chief sometime to get over his anger, hilarious.
I was wrestling a few matches after Owen died in KC, I can’t remember if I was next or a couple after, a terrible tragedy. WWE was Owen’s playground-a guy who loved the business and loved to rib non stop and somehow no one ever got mad at him they just loved him more and more-as did I.


He seemed like a great guy. I've heard in an interview that Bret still remembers them to this day, and whenever something goes missing or some small little issue comes up that irritates him he would say "I know this Owen". He still has fond memories of him.

Re: Owen Hart Ribs?

Generally I don't like Owen's ribs but the one Bret told on the Ross Report the other day makes me laugh every time I think about it. At IYH December 1995 when Triple H and Henry Godwinn had that hog pen match, the man delivering the animals to the arena wasn't sure where to take them. He found Owen, who confidently led them to Vince's office when Vince wasn't there. When Vince got back there were a bunch of animals in his office.

Re: Owen Hart Ribs?

Bret told a few good ones on the JR Podcast the other day. One, he convinced Davey, who was drunk, that a statue was arguing with him and Davey started to argue back to the statue.

Jason Sensation, the guy who impersonated Owen in '98, said Owen used to call guys up, like Stone Cold, at 4am and yell at them. Then when confronted, he would say "that damn Jason Sensation did it"

The one where he called his father and pretended to be Reg Park was hilarious.

JR said the office was FILLED with sh*t when they returned.

Owen is a legend when it comes to ribbing. Reading about his pranks always leave a smile on my face.

Re: Owen Hart Ribs?

I remember a picture of the McMahon pig rib actually ended up in the WWF Magazine.
