Martha Hart not happy about Owen Hart DVD release

Martha Hart, the widow of Owen Hart, said that she was not happy when hearing the news yesterday that WWE was doing an Owen Hart DVD.

After reading that she was supportive of the project on Wrestling DVD News, she said:

"My children and I were unaware of this project until May 7, when it was brought to our attention by a friend who had read about it online.  Contrary to your report, we do not back or support it in anyway, nor has WWE requested our backing or support.  From what little we know of the project, it seems to be another attempt to exploit Owen's memory, and his tragic death, for commercial gain.  We have resisted that kind of initiative for almost 16 years.  If WWE really wanted to honor Owen's legacy it would just let him rest in peace."
