As always wrestling gives us both great memories and memories we try and forget, but with the amount of moments worth remembering that have happened we are bound to forget some. The same could be said about some talent that were very much underrated during their career or never at the top of a company during a run this unfortunately makes it easier for fans to forget certain talent. These two are very different talent and had two very different careers while they worked in this great business. Sometimes we encounter those that deserve to be remembered and acknowledged. I would like to wish a very big Happy Birthday to all who are celebrating their special day today and especially to the one featured below.
Nerd Note: Early on his career Owen Hart was one of many wrestlers to perfect their crafts in various countries instead of just leaning on one type of wrestling. At one point Owen spent time with UWA in Mexico, and WAR & NJPW in Japan. In many ways Owen had to do this, because he hadn't had the same spot in Stampede that Bret & The Anvil so Owen had to still show his potential. Owen would do that ten fold and become one of the most gifted performers in the history of wrestling.
