Bret HartBret Hart recently made an appearance at a wrestling show in Altoona, PA.

He spoke to the local press and AltoonaMirror.com is featuring an interview with the hall of famer. During the interview, Hart spoke about the tragic death of his brother Owen.

"I think that in the end when you weigh it all up, I'm grateful for all wrestling gave me, and I think my dad and brother Owen would say the same thing. I'm proud of everything I did. After dealing with what happened with my brother Owen over the years, I've come to see it was a horrible accident, and I don't think [WWE owner] Vince [McMahon] would want something like that to happen. It wouldn't be advantageous to anyone. We were hurt by that, though. I don't think my dad ever got over what happened with Owen. It had a rebound effect with my dad and Davey. I think my dad and Davey would have lived a lot longer if not for Owen dying."
