Question: Owen, I think you are the WWF's #1 talent today, which
wrestler do you admire or respect the most??
Owen: Well I would have to say Chris Benoit. He started
Calgary and I'm proud to say that he is holding up the tradition of the
Question: If your brother came begging for forgiveness for all the
things he's done to you, would you forgive him?
Owen: He would have to admit that I am better than him.
And if he
is still the WWF champion he would have to give me a title shot first. If
beat him I would be the WWF champion, if I lost, I would accept defeat.
I would forgive him.
Question: Seeing as how you hate both of them....as do I.....who
rather see win at WM12....Shawn Michaels or Bret?
Owen: Well, I would have to say Bret because at least he
the family name alive whether I dislike him or not.

Owen: The two names we just mentioned, Shawn Michaels and

Team Title, winning the King of the Ring, Or your victory over Bret at
Owen: King of the Ring victory when I beat everybody and

Owen: You never say never, but I am very content. I am
WWF and I believe that there is more to wrestling than just money. And if
can maintain a good living and keep your dignity then I would prefer
right where I am. Now it is just time to wait and see if I'm given a fair
Question: How do feel that Yokozuna is stating that he was the
when you were Tag Team Champions?
Owen: It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see who did
Yokozuna is big, and that's it. I am athletic, my wrestling is
sound, entertaining to watch and I can get mean if I have to. Now we
who rises to the top. To me Yokozuna looks like he will sink.
Question: In the wrestling ring, what are the major differences
Owen: There are not alot. I'm a better person, we both
in the same environment, equal in size, both very competitve but I am
and ready to take over where Bret leaves off.
Question: What are your interests outside the Ring?
Owen: I like watching good movies, bike riding, swimming,
and most of all the luxury to be home and playing with my children and
Question: Why would Regis and Cathy Lee ask Bret to be on tomorrow
and not you?
Owen: That's the discrimination and aversion that I have
my whole life.
Question: You've beat Bret before. How come he still goes on about
"best there is, best there was" crap?
Owen: I guess because he is the WWF champion he thinks
that he can
claim to be the best. But if he is the best, and I beat him, doesn't that
make me better?
Question: What are your thoughts about the return of the Ultimate
Owen: He's kept his face in private since his
announcement. It will
take time to see if he can match what he used to be, or if he is an old
trying to hang on to what he once was.
Question: Owen, are you afraid of SNAKES?
Owen: No, I'm not but I don't like to have them thrown
neck and face, it's a wrestling ring, not a zoo. Last time I checked
Question: Who picked up wrestling quicker you or Bret?
Owen: Positively I did. Just look at my amateur wrestling
It really shows my win/loss compared to Bret. I was better then and I'm
Question: Your Brother Bret collected Comics as a kid? What about

Owen: My hobbies were always sports oriented. But being
youngest of 12 children I had to compete and I became mischievous to get
Now I'm just plain bad.
Question: If 9 thugs would have jumped Owen Hart,what would have
Owen: Well anytime you are fighting 9 people no matter
you are, it's an uphill battle. But if the ratio is far, 3 on 1 even,
would be some sorry dudes.
Question: Why don't you find it in your heart to take Jim Cornette
Owen: Jim Cornette's appearance does not affect our
As long as we keep winning, he can wear whatever he wants.
Question: Is it just me or Ahmed Johnson is cutting all those
all you guys. Do you understand what the hell he is saying?
Owen: Well I'm glad somebody else agrees with me.
It sounds like he's got a mouth full of marbles. Like I said, a
million dollar body and a two cent brain.
Question: Are you going to feel bad beating Jake "The Snake"
that he has found the Lord?
Owen: No, Jake Roberts is just like any other opponent.
what he is getting into and Camp Cornette is going to treat the Snake
other opponent that dares fight us. Especially at WrestleMania XII.
Question: What are your views on Razor and Diesel leaving the WWF
to the WCW?
Owen: I think that WWF has been very fair to both of
And it's sad to see talent like that leave. But in a competitive
market, sometimes money is the most important thing. And if those guys
making more money for less days work, good for them. But, they better
twice if things
don't work out about coming back here.
Question: How do you feel about gauranteed contracts?
Owen: I bust my butt every night and I'm guaranteed
little incentive and some stability in salary would make it worth while
home so much.
Question: Would you ever consider doing us all a favor and put a
you face like Vader?Please Owen, we are getting sick!!
Owen: Maybe you would be satisfied but all of my other
be missing out on wrestling's most beautiful talent.
Question: Do you think that Vince McMahon has been fair to Owen
Owen: Yes, he's been fair. In my early days as the Blue
my tag team partner Koko B Ware, I don't think I was given a fair chance.
it was only until I got a chance to fight Bret because Jerry Lawler ran
some trouble, then I got a fair chance to show my ability.
Question: Would you ever consider wrestling IC Champ Goldust?And
what kind of
strategy would you have?
Owen: Well, I would love to wrestle the Intercontinental
and my first tactic would be to treat him like a normal heterosexual
of his strategy is to psych his opponent out with his gay tendencies. So
thrust kick like Shawn Michaels took, would put Goldust out fast.
Question: Would you pay money to see Bret act?
Owen: I get to watch it for free, and I can't stand
when it's free.
Question: Owen, are there any plans for you and the Bulldog to
Owen: Yes, there are aspirations. We were both former WWF
Champions and we were both the leaders of our teams. Can you imagine the
with both of us as one team?
Question: In your opinion, who was the better tag team? The Hart
the British Bulldogs?
Owen: The British Bulldog's were a better team. They had
teamwork and were just an all-around exciting team. But I think that the
Bulldog's got so good, by fighting the Hart Foundation.
Owen: I'm heading off on an airplane now because Camp
going to have some private strategy meetings about how we are going to
the Snake, the Blob, and the neanderthall.
