10. Jerry Lawler Recalls His Experience Sitting Ringside During Owen Hart’s Accident At Over The Edge 1999

During the latest edition of “Dinner With The King” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler discussed Owen Hart’s accident at Over The Edge 1999 PPV (which completed 18 years this week). Below are the highlights:

On the incident being 18 years ago:

“It just seems hard to believe it’s been 18 years since that night. Because that night is still so vivid in my mind. For some reason I was looking around as the promo was playing. I glanced up and was looking around. And as the promo was going, I just saw something. I couldn’t say that I saw it; saw Owen actually fall. I just saw a blur.”

Rushing to Owen Hart’s side after the accident:

“Once your heart is no longer beating anymore, I could just see his face turn gray, from the tip of his nose all the way down his face as the blood was settling in his body. I knew, I realized that moment right then, that Owen was gone.”

Speaking of Owen’s death, below is a video of Vince Russo talking about people blaming him for Owen’s death:
