This past Saturday night, the late Owen Hart was inducted into the 2018 class of the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame.
The induction ceremony took place in Waterloo, Iowa, and according to ComicBook.com, was attended by The Hart family, including Diana Hart, Harry Smith, Bruce Hart, Ross Hart, and Keith Hart.
The induction comes around the same as Martha Hart, Owen’s widow, and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, Owen’s brother, have been very vocal about Owen not yet being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Martha says she will not allow the induction as she blames WWE for Owen’s death, and does not want the company to profit off an Owen Hart induction. Bret, on the other hand, believes Owen deserves an induction so his fans are allowed to witness the honor.
Below are photos from the induction ceremony, which also saw WWE Hall of Famer Booker T received the Lou Thesz Award:

#OwenHart wasn’t only a tremendous and gifted athlete: he was also a dedicated family man. It’s fitting to have so many members of the #HartFamily with us to induct Owen into the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame. #Thesz pic.twitter.com/CihON8qCkr
