The Hart Dungeon Opens Again
This seems like an odd move if you ask me, but apparently the Stu Hart family dungeon is back in business.
The Hart dungeon trained some of the best wrestlers in all of professional wrestling history. Including Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, and many others. The pain and experience of training that was found in the Hart family basement was chronicled in the film "Wrestling with Shadows", and proved to be one of the rare training facilities in professional wrestling that made you into one of the toughest people in the world.
Now it's back, but surprisingly without Bret "The Hitman" Hart. Teddy Hart, instead, has opened it up for business and is rigorously training new recruits in the manners that Stu Hart trained his students.
It's not the same.
That's my first thought into this story, and it very well may never be the same. However, Hart is no slouch, he might not be the biggest name in professional wrestling , but he has family blood ties to the Hart family, which is golden in these days.
If Bret joins in, you will have the biggest teacher in the world. If Bret never returns to the WWE, maybe his students will, and his students will usher in a new era of professional wrestling, one that is not filled with stupid gimmicks and random title changes.
An era where kayfabe joins in with the "entertainment" factor that is professional wrestling.
