Unfortunately, his career was cut short on May 23, 1999, when he tragically passed away during a stunt at a WWE pay-per-view event in Kansas City, Missouri.

The stunt was part of a storyline in which Hart was to descend from the rafters of the Kemper Arena while dressed as his “Blue Blazer” character.

The incident occurred during the “Over the Edge” pay-per-view event, which was being broadcast live on television.

Hart was to be lowered into the ring by a harness and cable, but something went wrong during the stunt, and he fell more than 70 feet to his death.

The tragedy of Hart’s death rocked the professional wrestling world and led to changes in the way that stunts and dangerous moves are performed in the industry.

It also marked the end of Hart’s career in the WWE, and his final match remains a poignant reminder of his talent and the impact he had on the sport.

At Over the Edge 1999, Owen Hart was meant to wrestle The Godfather, in a match for the WWF Intercontinental Champion.

Hart was working under a mask, as his “Blue Blazer” gimmick, which is why he was to enter the ring on a zipline from the rafters.

Owen Hart’s last televised match was a tag team match on the May 11th, 1999 episode of Monday Night Raw. He teamed with Jeff Jarrett, in a loss against The Godfather and Val Venis.
