New, comments

Owen Hart’s tragic death is one of the saddest stories in the history of pro wrestling. It’s hard to read the details about his fall at WWF’s Over the Edge 1999 without feeling angry, frustrated, helpless, sad, and heart-broken.

But it’s important to remember that Owen Hart brought laughter and happiness into many people’s lives, and so we can also smile and share in that happiness when hearing the details of some of Owen’s legendary pranks that he played on his family and colleagues.

Vice released a video of a deleted scene from their Dark Side of the Ring documentary on Hart, and this one is all about his propensity for pulling off all kinds of pranks. Check out the video above to see how Owen was able to use pigs, pizza, shoelaces, water bottles, and impersonations to create some truly hilarious moments.
