Before this year’s Hall Of Fame, Smith Hart spoke on Uproxx on his thoughts of Owen Hart not getting included by stating
“In talking to Bret, I can confirm that WWE will NOT be inducting Owen, Davey, Blue Blazer or even as Bret and I suggested, of inducting the entire Hart Foundation as a unit this year in Dallas for their fictional Hall of Fame. This once again proves that WWE’s Hall of Fame is nothing more than profiteering, grandstanding and political BS. ”
