Nobody was thinking about themselves or how hard it was to say something...all thought were on Owen and his family. https://t.co/BFInUagmlK— Jerry Lawler (@JerryLawler) May 23, 2018
't's been 19 years since the tragic accident that took #OwenHart from us. Can't imagine how hard it was for @JRsBBQ & @JerryLawler to have to deliver those chilling words that their friend had passed. #RIPOwen #KingOfHarts pic.twitter.com/qlf4UmWWiZ— Heroes & Legends (@HLProWrestling) May 23, 2018
@realkevinkelly @JerryLawler @JRsBBQ what are your thought processes on this 19 years later? I'm just a fan & it still feels like it just happened. I can't even begin to imagine what was going on at the time, & I'm sorry that you had to go through that on PPV. ??????????— Amy (@tydal420) May 24, 2018
