Teddy Hart gets hold of MTV
By TJ MADIGAN - Calgary Sun


The third generation of the Hart dynasty is on the brink of the big time.

Harry Smith, son of the late British Bulldog, has signed a WWE deal and is set to debut on Raw in the near future.

Nattie Neidhart, daughter of Jim The Anvil, just scored a WWE developmental contract and is now well on her way to Diva-dom.

TJ Wilson, an honorary member of the Hart clan and longtime Stampede Wrestling star, also has landed a job with WWE and will begin training in the Deep South farm system next month.

But for another of Stu Hart's grandchildren, the route to fame and fortune won't begin on Vince McMahon's payroll.

Teddy Hart has signed on as a main-event player for a new wrestling project which will launch on MTV at the end of this month.

Wrestling Society X is a hybrid grappling show, mixing live rock music and high-flying wrestling action in an underground club setting.

"We're establishing a new style, a very fast paced-style of wrestling," Hart told the Calgary Sun.

"MTV has made a major investment in this and, quite frankly, it's going to be huge."

The WSX project targets the valuable 18- to 24-year-old demographic, which WWE has been losing its grip on over the past five years.

The show focuses on hard-hitting moves and non-stop impact, instead of 15-minute monologues and corny backstage skits.

"MTV asked us to hit the fans with everything we have," Hart said.

"I'm not a guy who's going to drop psychology just to get my big moves in but I will get them in.

"You'll see crazy stuff off the top rope that you've never seen before this show."

Hart is helping develop talent for future seasons of the show in his wrestling school here at BJ's Gym.

WSX debuts on MTV Canada Jan. 30.
