VIDEO: Canek vs. Blue Blazer (Owen Hart) Mask match
Today is the 13th anniversary of the death of Owen Hart. It was one of the worst moments in pro wrestling history.
Owen Hart while best known for his time wrestling in WWE had a successful career outside of that promotion. Developing into one of the best all-around wrestlers, Hart traveled the world and became a star in Japan, Europe, and in Mexico. In Mexico, he wrestled under his masked gimmick of “The Blue Blazer”. He would soon put that mask on the line against lucha legend El Canek. On May 29th, 1991, Owen Hart dropped his mask to El Canek at El Toreo.
Here’s a 7 minute video of the match that appeared on Canek video in a series that featured one particular UWA star and his big matches along with behind the scenes footage. I noticed a few other videos already uploaded to youtube, but the quality wasn’t that great, so I went ahead and uploaded an upgraded version.
