Ted Hart DVD doesn't hit the heights
The documentary, A Hart Still Pounding
, is similar to the career of its subject, Ted Hart. It started out full of promise but never reached full potential.
The documentary chronicles the life of Ted Hart. He is the son of Georgia Hart and BJ Annis. Stu Hart was his grandfather and uncles include Bret and Owen Hart, Jim Neidhart, and Davey Boy Smith. Given this pedigree, it would be surprising if Ted Hart did not choose wrestling as a career.
Taking falls in the New Hart Dungeon
By SHAWN LOGAN - Calgary Sun
Learning to fall may be harder than learning to fly.
This was my first and most painful lesson when I decided to fulfil a childhood dream and step between the ropes in the New Hart Dungeon to train with the next generation of Calgary wrestling stars.
Tucked away in a corner on the second floor of the storied B.J.'s Gym in the East Village, the new dungeon doesn't quite have the same ghosts that haunted the original in the Hart Mansion in Patterson Heights.

New Hart Foundation rising?
By BILLY POWERS - Calgary Sun
As a young boy in Edmonton, I used to ask for my weekly allowance of $1.25 on Tuesdays because that was the night Al Oeming staged his pro wrestling card in the Alberta capital.
It cost that much to get into the Sales Pavilion so I had to sneak on a bus both ways to make it happen but got very good at it. For several years I believed what people like Sky High Lee, Gorgeous George, Seelie Sumara and Al (Mr. Murder) Mills were doing was real.

By JASON CLEVETT -- SLAM! Wrestling
The wrestling world is buzzing after the bizarre unprofessional behavior of Ted Hart on the November 1 Ring of Honor show in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Fans were reportedly blown away by the "Scramble Cage Match" featuring Teddy teaming up with former Mat Rats star Jack Evans as "The Hart Foundation 2003." Also in the match was the SAT, Jose and Joel Maximo, Hydro & Angel Dust of Special K, The Carnage Crew Loc and Devito, and winners Trent Acid and Johnny Kashmere, The Backseat Boyz.

Carrying on the family business
By TJ MADIGAN -- Calgary Sun
"The Dungeon is a dangerous place to take bumps. There's pieces of padding missing all over the place and parts of the floor are exposed. You have to be careful but I think that's all part of the allure."
Nattie Neidhart is excitedly talking about learning the ropes of the grappling game in the infamous Hart family 'Dungeon', or as she affectionately describes it, "at Grampy's house."

Teddy Hart is ready
By ERIC FRANCIS -- Calgary Sun
It was almost a year ago I first wrote about Teddy Hart, the 23-year-old boy wonder from the most famous family in wrestling. At the time, Hart was grappling at small Calgary venues in front of 50 people each night, with little or no monetary motivation for taking all the bumps and bruises. He had the talent, the look, the ring psychology and the charisma to be a superstar but, aside from a short-lived developmental deal with the WWF a few years earlier, he was just one of many up-and-comers waiting for a chance to earn a spot in the big-time.
Hart managed to shine during several opportunities for exposure, including a WWE house show at the Saddledome last October and a vicious hardcore brawl with Sabu at Stampede Wrestling's anniversary event in May.

Torch passed to up-and-comers
By BRET HART -- SLAM! Wrestling
I ran into a teacher from my son Blade's school and he remarked that he saw my nephews, Harry and Ted, wrestle the other day and it was his opinion they had the best match on the show.
It seems a lot of people think I have a problem with Harts making a living in wrestling these days, which is utterly ridiculous. I suppose some people have convinced themselves that since I've gone through a couple of unusually bad situations in wrestling, I begrudge others from making a living in the business. The fact is, I achieved more success in wrestling than I ever dreamed I would, got to travel all over the world and I still enjoy meeting people from all walks of life.

Teddy Hart opens wrestling camp
By ERIC FRANCIS -- Calgary Sun
Love it or hate it, wrestling may very well be the most watched
"sport" in North America.
Yet unlike the hundreds of local minor league organizations that provide
children with a place to play their sport of choice, there is nowhere for kids
to learn to wrestle.
