Damar Hamlin: Fans connect NFL tragedy to death of late WWE Superstar Owen Hart

As you read these worlds, the sports world is praying for Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills, who collapsed after a collision with Tee Higgins of the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. Hamlin received CPR on the field following the hit for several minutes and is in critical condition at a medial facility in Cincinnati.

The NFL made the decision to postpone the game until a later time. This had fans watching the game comparing this tragedy to another, specifically the death of WWE Superstar, Owen Hart, who was killed during the Over the Edge Pay Per View in 1999.

After suffering a fatal fall, the WWE decided to continue with the show and announced the death of Hart later in the program. The broadcasting team, and even the other wrestlers were struggling to continue after the news came down.

Monday Night Football and WWE’s Monday Night RAW run opposite of each other with the former airing on ESPN and ABC, and the latter on USA.

Here are the tweets from some fans on Monday night…
