Knowing the negative affect it would of had on his young children, who were at school, he declined the offer to get frisky with Debra on-screen. Peeved that he had the audacity to turn down one of their storylines the office decided to embarrass him by forcing him to re-live his days as the goofiest character in wrestling. Owen took it all in his stride, until Over The Edge 99, at which point he was scared as hell, but knowing he was already in the doghouse he agreed to do the completley unnessissary and unsafe stunt... We all know how this awful tale ends.
