One of the most touching moments at the Hall Of Fame ceremony was Mark Henry’s plea to Martha Hart to allow Owen Hart to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. It’s no secret that Martha wants nothing to do with WWE after her husband’s tragic death during the Over The Edge pay-per-view in 1999. Henry’s emotional plea was one of the highlights of the ceremony but Jerry “The King” Lawler didn’t think it was a good idea. In fact, on his recent podcast, he said that Henry’s plea probably didn’t help Hart’s chances.
“I don’t think that was the place to do that. Who knows? Trust me, WWE would love to have Owen Hart in the Hall Of Fame. There’s no need to plead to anyone in WWE.”
Moore clarified that Henry was pleading to Martha Hart, not WWE.
He added, “Well, call her up on the phone if you’re that close and plead your case there. That’s just my personal opinion. I’m sure Mark thought that was a good thing to do and that’s fine. I don’t think it helped.”
Moore asked if anyone in WWE was upset. Lawler said, “I’m not gonna say.”
