The widow of Owen Hart, the World Wrestling Entertainment performer who was killed 14 years ago as he was being lowered into a wrestling ring, has settled her lawsuit against the WWE.
Martha Hart announced that she and the organization had reached an agreement over royalties and use of Hart’s name and likeness. No details of the settlement weer disclosed.
Hart was 34 when he died in an accident during a May 23, 1999, event with the then-World Wrestling Federation in Kansas City. His bungee slipped as he was being lowered from the ceiling during his introduction and he fell, striking his head on a corner buckle. Hart’s family and the wrestling organization reached a reported $18 million settlement over his death in 2000.
