“Dark Side of the Ring” episode on Owen Hart will include never-before-seen footage from his final days



Vice's "Dark Side of the Ring" series is slated to air an episode on legendary pro wrestler Owen Hart.

The episode will take a look at his life and death. He passed away on May 23, 1999, due to a tragic accident at the WWE Over the Edge pay-per-view when he was trying to make a superhero-like entrance from the ceiling of the arena while being lowered down.

The episode is slated to air on Tuesday, May 19 at 10pm ET.

The Owen Hart Foundation, which is operated by Owen's widow, Martha Hart, noted in a recent tweet that the episode will feature never-before-seen footage.

The tweet also mentioned that the episode has the full support of Dr. Hart and the Foundation.

"2 Weeks & Counting! With the full support of Dr. Hart & the OHF Vice-Media's Dark Side of the Ring is releasing tragic story of Owen Hart's final days with never-before-seen footage. Show airs Tues. May 19th on USA's Vice on TV & Crave TV in Canada at 10pm ET & 10pm PT. Do watch!”

We noted earlier this year on the site that Vice had the film crew fly out to Calgary in order to film Martha and Owens' son Oje, as well as his daughter Athena.
