Hart family hurt again


By LYLE HARVEY -- Calgary Sun
  A Florida businessman has delivered a stinging body slam to the widow of late Calgary wrestler Owen Hart.

Three months after he promised to transfer a money-making Internet address to Martha Hart, Roy Messer of Tallahassee, Fla., continues to profit from his ownership of owenhart.com. Typing in that domain name sends 'Net surfers to a page of a commercial search engine called GoTo.com, which provides links to websites selling WWF merchandise.

Owen Hart died at age 34 after falling 15 metres during a WWF event in Kansas City on May 23 last year.

Messer told the Sun last April he would transfer the name to Hart for free. But a search of domain names shows owenhart.com was re-registered under Messer's name last month.

"I had nothing to do with that," he said from Florida. Messer said he was prepared to give up the address, but neither Hart nor her lawyer phoned him.
