Owen’s 25th anniversary happened recently. Jimmy Korderas is a former WWE referee and he spoke about Owen Hart. He was present in the ring at the time Owen fell to his death.

He spoke about Own on Wrestling Inc. and shared some of his real life memories of him. "Of course, he's famous for his ribs," Korderas said. "And the great thing about Owen's ribs was they were never harmful. They were all harmless and just made everyone laugh.

I've gotten ribbed a few times where late evening at the hotel, where I get a call in my room, and it's allegedly from the front desk where the guy would say, 'Excuse me, sir, Mr. Korderas, your credit card has been declined.

You have to come down to the front desk and clear this up.' And I'm saying, 'Can't we do this in the morning?' 'No, Sir. It has to be done right now.' Okay, so I put on sweats and go down to the front desk, and I talked to the guy who's doing overnight duty at the front desk, and I said, 'Yeah, I'm here to clear up the issue with my credit card”.

' He went to speak to the front desk to resolve the issue regarding his credit card. However, he was told that there was no record of an issue with his credit card. Jimmy then asked what the front desk clerk found. He was informed that someone just told him about an issue minutes ago.

It was apparently one of Jimmy’s WWE colleagues that raised the same concerns. Jimmy then noticed Owen giggling in the corner. "When you saw [Owen], you weren't angry," Korderas said. "It was like you started laughing going, 'He got me.' "
