Stephanie McMahon was interviewed by CBS Pittsburgh and talked about the challenges when the WWE Network launches, including editing video from WWE Over the Edge 1999, where Owen Hart tragically died. She also mentioned Chris Benoit, who killed himself, his wife and his son in 2007. Since then, WWE has gone to extreme measures to not bring his name up in any promo.
“They are incredible challenging decisions to make,” McMahon said. “At the end of the day, we try to do what’s right for our fans and we try to give them exactly what they want to see.”
WWE sent an official release below regarding the Over The Edge Pay-Per View:
“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.
