1In a match with Stone Cold Steve Austin, he performed a "piledriver." Something went terribly wrong and the top of Austin's head actually made contact with the mat causing a severe neck/spinal injury.
2Although he had died by the time UPN picked the series up, he appeared in the pilot episode of WWE Smackdown! (1999).
3The harness used in the fatal accident that caused his death was a $68 dollar sailboat harness not designed for humans to descend from heights. The WWF were warned specifically by many professional stunt coordinators not to use this harness. His widow, Martha, then sued the WWF for wrongful death due to negligence.
4He had a reputation for pulling practical jokes. On the tribute episode of WWF Raw (1993) that aired the night after his death, almost every wrestler interviewed mentioned his ability to make them laugh.
5Heavy metal band 'Owen Hart' is named after him.
6Former World Tag Team Champion.
7Owen Hart as "The Blue Blazer" was originally booked to defeat The Godfather for the WWF Intercontinental Championship at Over The Edge 1999 before his untimely death.
8His son Oje was 7 years old and daughter Athena 4 years old when he died.
9Was a member of the Hart Foundation. A faction that was led by his brother Bret "The Hitman" Hart and included his brother-in-law Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, his (now late) brother-in-law "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith and the late Brian Pillman.
10Died just hours after the Calgary Hitmen, who were partially owned by brother Bret at the time, lost the Canadian junior hockey championship final (May 23, 1999).
11Former tagteam partner of Koko B. Ware with High Energy.
12Former tagteam partner of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart with The New Foundation.
13Before his death in 1999, he had won every major World Wrestling Federation title except the WWF Championship. Those titles include the WWF Intercontinental Championship, WWF European Championship, and WWF World Tag Team Championship. Most wrestlers still maintain that if he had lived on, he would have eventually captured a WWF Championship.
14In early 1999, several months before his untimely death, he thought about retiring from wrestling and becoming a school teacher.
15Owen injured the necks of both "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and "The Beast" Dan Severn with botched piledriver attempts. This incidents are reasons why the piledriver is not used as much as it once was.
16Notable Title Wins Include: Stampede International Tag Team title w/Ben Bassarab; British Commonwealth Mid Heavyweight title; North American Heavyweight title (2) IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title; USWA Unified World Heavyweight Title; WWF King of the Ring champion; WWF Tag Team Titles w/Yokozuna; WWF Tag Team Titles w/Davey Boy Smith; WWF Intercontinental Title defeating (2); WWF European Title; WWF Tag Team Titles w/Jeff Jarrett
17In March & April of 1991, Owen Hart worked several Television tapings with World Championship Wrestling.
18Attended the University of Calgary on a wrestling scholarship.
19He appeared on a 1998 episode of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show (1997), and commented on how the injuries in professional wrestling are very real. This comment is somewhat ironic coming from Owen, considering less than a year later, he died after falling from the rafters of the Kemper Arena in Kansas City.
20Due to his death, _WWF Over the Edge (1999)_ is the only WWF Pay-Per-View never to be released on video or DVD.
21He was the only wrestler to wear the Blue Blazer persona on a regular basis.
22All of his brothers are/have been professional wrestlers; all of his sisters are/have been married to professional wrestlers
23According to Triple H, Owen would have eventually been called "The Game". A few months after Owen's death, Triple H actually got the gimmick nickname instead.
24Was scheduled to win the WWF Intercontinental title on the night he died.
25Son of Stu Hart and Helen Hart
26Died at "Over the Edge" after plunging 70 feet and hitting his chest on the ring post, stopping his heart. The official cause of death was "blunt force trauma".
27Got the nickname of Nugget when Shawn Michaels, referring to the fact that every other member of The Hart Foundation as a big old crap that had some members like Bret Hart that "flushed" away without a problem, but that Owen Hart was the little nugget that wouldn't go down as easily. When Owen went heel (became a bad guy) the audience often called him Nugget. After his death, Jeff Jarrett said "Owen never was a nugget."
28The 1994 WWF King of the Ring.
29Former member of the Hart Foundation and the Nation of Domination
30Former WWF Intercontinental, Tag Team and European Champion

33Youngest child of Stu and Helen Hart.
34Children, Oje and Athena
