Forgotten Legends85: Stu Hart

Now more renowned as the father of Bret and Owen Hart other than as the trainer of hordes of wrestlers who made it big like Jericho, Edge, Christian, Mark Henry, Benoit other than his family, he is a legend by his own right for he was a accomplished wrestler, ran his own promotion and had one of the famous if not notorious training schools in Hart's Dungeon.

Starting as a amateur wrestler winning a gold medal in Amateur Athletic Union of Canada in wrestling, he peaked when he won the Dominion Amateur wrestling championship in 1940. The Olympics in which he dreamt of participating was cancelled on the event of world war 2 and he joined the navy. Having trained in catch wrestling style under strenuous conditions, he passed on the methods to his sons and students in the dungeon gaining notoriety for the methods employed and the tough conditions. A car accident ended his amateur career and he started on professional wrestling with the Gold Dust trio training with Toots Mondt. He is said to have wrestled a bear and a tiger, if you are willing to buy that.

In 1948, He found Stampede wrestling where a lot of second generation superstars started out. After a 40 year career in pro-wrestling, he retired in 1988 from active wrestling receiving the Order of Canada.

The list of wrestlers he trained is long including his sons but who do you think achieved the most?

Superstar Billy Graham, IMO, was the highest his student could ever reach.

I don't think Stu Hart is a forgotten legend.
