We all love Owen Hart but personal feelings aside Owen Hart deserves to be on any list of Top Wrestlemania performers. In his first couple Wrestlemanias Owen was still finding his identity as he portrayed the Blue Blazer and the Rocket in bright neon, checkered pants. Owen has a good Wrestlemania record but Owen’s greatest victory and greatest Wrestlemania match came at Wrestlemania 10 as defeated his brother Bret. Owen went on after that victory to win and retain tag team championships. Owen was a true ring general and Wrestlemania needed Owen’s presence in order for fans to buy tickets to see the show. Now a days, Wrestlemania sells itself but it was pioneers like Owen who helped carve that reputation. When Owen competed the WWE and Wrestlemania had competition and the WWE had to make sure they put forward the superior card. The WWE knew that if fans saw Owen Hart’s name on the card that they’d certainly order/attend Wrestlemania.
