Ted Hart DVD doesn't hit the heightsThe 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
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?
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.
Teddy Hart gets hold of MTV
Harry Smith, son of the late British Bulldog, has signed a WWE deal and is set to debut on Raw in the near future.
'Attitude problems' continue to plague Ted Hart
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
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
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
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
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.
