Tonight’s season finale of Dark Side of the Ring focusses on Owen Hart’s tragic death on May 23rd, 1999. In conjunction with the episode, the Owen Hart Foundation and VICE media have produced official Owen Hart merchandise for the first time in over 20 years. All proceeds will go to support the foundation Martha Hart set-up in Owen’s name.
Two T-shirts are currently available on ProWrestlingTees.com. One has a picture of Owen and the Dark Side of the Ring logo in the corner. The other shirt features a pink and black heart logo with the words “In our hearts forever.”
The Owen Hart Foundation
Established following the wrongful death lawsuit regarding Owen’s tragic fall, the Owen Hart Foundation supports a variety of programs including helping low-income families and individuals purchase homes and a scholarship program for students.
“Owen was a practical man of profound integrity, a wonderful husband and devoted father. He would be extremely proud of the good work carried out by the Foundation and would be honoured to be remembered for what he loved best, which was his sincere kindness to all people,” reads the website of the Owen Hart Foundation.
