All Elite Wrestling (AEW) announced its working relationship with the Owen Hart Foundation to honor the legacy of late wrestler Owen Hart.
The partnership will include an annual ‘Owen Hart Cup Tournament’ within AEW, with the winner receiving a Cup known as ‘The Owen,’ as well as the production and distribution of original merchandise honoring Hart.
“AEW’s relationship with the Hart family dates back to our inaugural pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing in 2019, and Owen’s influence is still felt today,” said Tony Khan, AEW CEO.
“The Owen Hart Foundation is extremely pleased to partner with AEW in this wonderful joint venture to honor Owen’s substantial international wrestling career and the lasting influence he and his craft has had in the sport,” said Dr. Martha Hart, the widow of the late legendary wrestler.
“AEW’s Owen Hart Cup Tournament serves as a tremendous tribute to Owen and provides an incredible way for professional wrestling enthusiasts to celebrate his work in a most fitting way.”
The Owen Hart Foundation was launched in 2000 in memory of the Canadian wrestler, who died in 1999 at the age of 34.
