Martha Hart Law Suit Resolved; WWE Free to Use Owen Hart’s Name & Likeness

Mike Killam

Although no details have been released from either side, the lawsuit between WWE and Martha Hart seems to have finally reached an end as of this Wednesday. The suit has kept WWE from using any likeness of former WWE wrestler Owen Hart, who died tragically in 1999. 

From this point forward, WWE has the legal right to use the name and likeness of Owen Hart in their programming and various other productions, with Martha – his widow – receiving compensation and royalties.
