Hart Legacy Wrestling

Came across quite the interesting article today about the Hart Legacy Wrestling show that took place in January.

"Complaints grow over Hart family wrestling event

Event staff say they haven't been paid, promised pay-per-view never aired

Professional wrestling is well known for its dramatic story lines, often filled with battles and betrayal.

But, itís what happened behind the scenes at last month's Hart Legacy Wrestling show that's generating some controversy.

Complaints are mounting against the organizers of the Jan. 18 event at the Stampede Pavilion last month that drew a full house.

'The show tried super hard, they just donít know what they're doing and they got nervous and scared and then everything sort of fell apart from there'
ó Ted Hart, professional wrestler
During intermissions staff got some bad news.

ďThere was not going to be a pay at the end of the night,Ē said colour commentator Jeff Jackson.

He says envelopes are usually handed out after the show but weeks later he and a few others still haven't been paid.

"I think itís pretty shady, I think itís pretty dirty,Ē said Jackson.

An online pay-per-view never aired, costing organizers, tens of thousands in profit, and disappointing fans. As well, a hotel manager says he is out $3,200 for unpaid rooms.

Hart family
Ted Hart says he lent the family name, but others managed the money.

ďIf you want to tarnish the Hart name, I would think you'd have to say that it was done by the Harts. All we did was, there are two Harts involved, myself and Harry, and we both were great wrestlers on the show and really the rest of it didn't have anything to do with us.Ē

Hart says most of the staff have now been paid and said that from what he understands the hotel rooms were to be provided for free in exchange for advertising.

"The show tried super hard, they just donít know what they're doing and they got nervous and scared and then everything sort of fell apart from there."

Hart said he wants to make it up to fans and staff at the next show planned for later this month."

- According to Pwinsider.com, AAA Canada presents Next Generation Wrestling on February 22nd in Calgary, Alberta Canada at the Pavilion. The show will be headed by Teddy Hart, playing off of his ties to AAA in Mexico, and is designed to replace the DOA Hart Legacy Wrestling promotion. Hart Legacy Wrestling debuted last month, and while well received, many wrestlers went unpaid. The AAA Canada press release noted the following….

"All talent is confirmed and has been paid in advance, showing good faith by our new financial partners to support Next Generation Wrestling and its fans. There will be no issues, and we are excited that many of the talents that wowed Calgary before will be returning to the ring for this spectacular night of action."

The Next Generation Wrestling will air on iPPV and will host a tournament to crown the first NGW champion John Morrison, Necro Butcher, Kevin Nash, Davey Boy Smith Jr. (Harry "DH" Smith), Jack Evans and Konnan are advertised as appearing.
There.
