New Customs: “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert and “Owen 3:16” Owen Hart April 25, 2009Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
New customs are up this week! First up is the man billed from “Every Woman’s Fantasy”, “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert. And boy, did he live up to his name: he was married to Madusa and Missy Hyatt, who were at that time the two hottest women in wrestling. Eddie Gilbert died on February 18, 1995.

Owen Hart was a two-time Intercontinental Champion, one-time European Champion, and four-time World Tag Team Champion in the WWF, as well as the winner of the 1994 WWF King of the Ring. His only World Championship came in the form of a brief reign as USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion while under contract to the WWF. Click on the pictures to view the larger images.
At SummerSlam 1997, Owen botched a piledriver and ended up injuring Steve Austin’s neck. The injury was so bad that Austin’s neck never fully recovered. Although it was an accident, the WWF decided to make it part of the storyline as Owen began wearing a t-shirt patterned after Austin’s that read “Owen 3:16”.
Owen fought his way to the finals of the tournament to crown the next Intercontinental champion and was set to face Faarooq at In Your House: Bad Blood. Owen went on to beat Faarooq, surprisingly with Steve Austin’s help. Afterwards, Austin explained that he wanted to beat Owen for the title when he returned and wouldn’t allow Faarooq or anyone else to beat him. His wish came true when Austin returned to action at Survivor Series 1997 in Montreal.
