Owen Hart's widow, Martha, does not support WWE documentary after all

Just yesterday, passed along a report that WWE is working on an Owen Hart DVD, one that would include a feature length documentary on his life and career. The report stated that this DVD had the "full backing and support" of Owen's widow, Martha, who has long been at odds with the company.

As it turns out, that's not the case.

Indeed, Martha released a statement to Wrestling DVD News refuting the report and maintaining the position she's always held:

"My children and I were unaware of this project until May 7, when it was brought to our attention by a friend who had read about it online. Contrary to your report, we do not back or support it in any way, nor has WWE requested our backing or support. From what little we know of the project, it seems to be another attempt to exploit Owen's memory, and his tragic death, for commercial gain. We have resisted that kind of initiative for almost 16 years. If WWE really wanted to honor Owen's legacy, it would just let him rest in peace."

This doesn't mean a DVD won't be released, but if it does it won't have the support of Owen's widow.
