WWE issued a statement yesterday on the decision to include Chris Benoit and the Over The Edge pay-per-view on the WWE Network. Owen Hart fell to his death at the Over The Edge pay-per-view but the fall did not air on pay-per-view. There was an Owen Hart pre-tape that aired during the fall, thankfully.
WWE’s official statement is “WWE Network will be airing the 1999 Over The Edge pay-per-view. However, portions of the event will be edited out of respect for Owen Hart.” The official statement was made to KDKA TV in Pittsburgh yesterday. The decision to include both was a recent one since prior to yesterday Stephanie McMahon was quoted as saying that they had not made a decision yet. You can watch the video of Stephanie’s statement below.
