WWE Pulls Nexus Mention, Bret Hart Supports Owen/DVD

Nick Paglino

Several readers have sent in word that WWE.com has pulled any reference to the Nexus attack on the WWE Legends this past Monday night on Raw. This was most likely done as a result of Ricky Steamboat’s recent hospitalization.

In a recent interview conducted for CTV.ca, Bret Hart said he supports WWE’s use of Owen Hart in a recent DVD produced by the company. The following is an excerpt from the article: "Pro wrestler Bret (The Hitman) Hart said he supports World Wrestling Entertainment’s release of a new video featuring his late brother, Owen, despite his sister-in-law’s lawsuit against the company and its leaders, including Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon.

In a telephone interview Friday with The Associated Press, Hart said the video that prompted Martha Hart’s lawsuit is a tribute to his family and its long history in professional wrestling.

"It was done with really good taste," he said from his home in Calgary. "As a family, we’re really proud of it and Martha’s lawsuit sort of makes it seem like there’s something bad or wrong about it. It’s just a bunch of brothers and sisters celebrating the memory of the whole family."
