You probably thought you saw the last of WWF wrestler Owen Hart when he fell to his death from a catwalk at Kansas City's Kemper Arena in 1999. Well, he's back:

The talk began after a column in a student newspaper in Rhode Island suggested that there have been sightings of the ghost of Hart in Kemper’s rafters . . . “Employees (at Kemper Arena) have claimed to have seen (Hart) in the rafters wearing the costume he was wearing for his gimmick,” the newspaper wrote, “as well as the cable before he began the descent. There have also been reports of flickering lights and other power sources that seem to go on and off in some areas of the arena.” . . . Supernatural “experts” suggest that even ghosts need a power supply, which may explain the flickering lights at Kemper.

Mental note: remember the "but the ghosts are siphoning my electricity" line the next time Commonwealth Edison threatens to turn off the juice. This story might get some college kids from Rhode Island excited, but I doubt any true professional wrestlings fans will find it credible. Wrestling fans rely on reason, evidence, and deduction and are much too intelligent to avidly believe in hoaxes or fake happenings. -KD
