Owen Hart was one of wrestling’s most popular stars back in the 1990′s but his career tragically ended before it could fully blossom during the WWE’s Over The Edge pay-per-view in May of 1999. As Hart attempted to repel down into the ring, the line malfunctioned and he was dropped a fatal 78 feet into the ring, landing on the top rope chest-first. Hart died of massive internal trauma caused by the fall.
