Booker T took to Twitter to apologize for a comment he made in reference to Owen Hart on Raw. For those who missed it, Booker was talking about Neville in his match with Luke Harper. JBL said that Neville could be the first high-flying King of the Ring and then said,
“Of course Owen [Hart] was a high-flyer, but not like this.” Booker T replied, “He couldn’t defy gravity.”
Neville is known as the “Man That Gravity Forgot” of course, but Owen Hart’s death from his fall during WWE Over the Edge in 1999 was given an unintential reference as a result. Booker posted:
I would never say anything to disrespect the legacy of Owen Hart. If I did offend anyone, I apologize.
