Jump to: navigation, search

The Hart wrestling family is a Canadian family with a significant history within professional wrestling.[1] The patriarch of the family was wrestling legend, WWE Hall of Famer and Order of Canada recipient Stu Hart (1915–2003).[2] An amateur and professional wrestling performer, promoter and trainer,[3] Stu not only owned and operated his own wrestling promotion, Stampede Wrestling, but also trained some of the most well known and successful stars in the contemporary wrestling industry including Edge, Chris Jericho, and Chris Benoit.[3] Two of his sons, Bret and Owen, also achieved fame and success in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE),[1] with many of the WWF's biggest storylines in the mid-1990s being built around Bret and Owen and their brothers-in-laws.[4]

As of 2014, the only Hart actively working in WWE is Stu's granddaughter Natalie "Natalya" Neidhart, but Bret makes occasional guest appearances while WWE employs Dungeon graduates Tyson Kidd (also Neidhart's husband), and former world champions Chris Jericho, Christian, and Mark Henry.

In wrestling[edit]

Amateur[edit]

Stu Hart was an experienced grappler.

Bret, Keith and Dean all had some experience in amateur wrestling.

Conor pursued amateur wrestling at the University of Calgary.[58][59]

Stewart has also pursued amateur wrestling and has won a medal in his school championship.[60][61]

Professional[edit]

The Hart family is one of the most well-known professional wrestling families in history. The patriarch of the family, Stu Hart was a professional wrestler and a trainer as well as the owner of Stampede Wrestling. Many of his children became professional wrestlers. He became involved with wrestling after retiring from his career with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League.[62] Stu began promoting wrestling in 1948 and operated Stampede Wrestling until selling it to Vince McMahon in 1984. In 1985, however, he decided to revive the promotion, which remained in operation until December 1989.[63] It was brought back again in 1999 by Bruce and Ross Hart and remains active today.[64] Stu Hart has been noted from training some of North America's most famous wrestlers, including André the Giant, the "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith, Dynamite Kid, Junkyard Dog, and dozens more in addition to his own sons.[62]

Bret Hart has won the most wrestling championships of anyone in the family. He won his first title belt in the World Wrestling Federation while teaming with brother-in-law Jim Neidhart (Ellie Hart's husband) to form The Hart Foundation tag team. They had a feud with the British Bulldogs (Diana Hart's husband Davey Boy Smith and Bret Hart's sister-in-law's husband Dynamite Kid, who were first cousins in real life). On January 26, 1987, Hart and Neidhart defeated the Bulldogs to win the WWF Tag Team Championship.[65] After the Hart Foundation split up, Owen Hart began teaming with Neidhart as The New Foundation. Bret went on to have a successful career as a singles wrestler, holding the WWF World Heavyweight Championship five times.[66]

The family connection played a role in two major WWF storylines. Four of the Hart brothers (Bret, Owen, Keith, and Bruce) formed a team at Survivor Series 1993.[67] Animosity began to build between Bret and Owen, and Owen turned on Bret at Royal Rumble 1994.[68] This led to a feud between the two brothers; Neidhart later became involved on Owen's side, while Smith sided with Bret.[69] The feud culminated with Owen costing Bret the WWF World Heavyweight Championship. While Bret was defending the title against Bob Backlund at Survivor Series 1994, Owen tricked his mother Helen into throwing a towel into the ring to signify that Bret conceded defeat.[70]

Several years later, the Hart Foundation was formed again, this time as a stable of anti-American wrestlers. Bret and Owen reconciled, and they were joined by Neidhart, Smith, and Brian Pillman (Pillman was not related, but had trained with the Hart family and was a friend of the family).[11][71][72] At the In Your House: Canadian Stampede pay-per-view in Calgary on July 6, 1997, the Hart Foundation won a five-on-five match against "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Ken Shamrock, Goldust, and The Legion of Doom (Hawk and Animal).[73] Bret Hart left the WWF in 1997 after what has come to be known as the Montreal Screwjob,[74] while Owen died as the result of a failed stunt during his ring entrance at the Over the Edge 1999 pay-per-view.[75] Bret would eventually return to the renamed WWE in 2010 after settling his differences with the promotion.

Three of Stu and Helen Hart's grandchildren have begun careers in professional wrestling. Nattie Neidhart, daughter of Ellie and Jim, trained in Calgary and now wrestles for World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly the WWF) under the ring name Natalya. She was the first female from the Hart family to win a championship gold, when she won the Divas Championship at Survivor Series 2010[76][77] Harry Smith, son of Diana and Davey Boy Smith, uses the name David Hart Smith and also wrestled for WWE.[76][78] Teddy Hart, son of Georgia Hart and BJ Annis, has also competed in WWE, but was released by the company.[76][79]

In the late 90s Harry Smith, T.J. Wilson, Teddy and his brother Matt were all training together.[80] Matt would later wrestle shortly together with Wilson, Smith and his brother before dying of a flesh eating disease in 1996.[81][82][58]

Two of Bruce Hart's sons Bruce Jr and Torrin have been involved in pro wrestling.[83]

Two of Smith Hart's sons, Mike and Matt Herweg have started a career in wrestling.[84][85] They perform under the names Matt Hart and Mike Hart, using their father's surname.

Both of Alison's daughters, Lindsay and Brooke have had relationships with wrestlers, Lindsay with Randy Myers and Brooke with Peter Minnema better known under his ring name "Pistol" Pete Wilson.[86] Brooke and Peter Minnema are now married since 2014. Minnema was trained in by the Hart family and has appeared for The Hart Legacy promotion.

Tom Billingtons eldest daughter, Bronwyne is a pro wrestling valet who manages her husband, Dan Vander Griendt whom is a pro wrestler. They perform together as the Dynamite Duo under the ring names The Dynamite Doll and Dynamite Dan Myers.[87][88]

Alexandra Sabina "Beans" Hart was at one point training to become a wrestler, hoping to eventually join her cousin Natalya as a WWE Diva.[89] These plans have most likely been canceled or postponed since she has had a child.

In his autobiography, wrestler Roddy Piper claims himself to be a cousin of the Hart family.[90] Said fact was used as a trivia question on raw once.[91][92][93][94] Bret Hart has also stated that Piper was the only wrestler to visit him in the hospital after his stroke.[95]


Outside of wrestling[edit]

Helen Smith Hart was the daughter of noted marathoner and sprinter Harry J. Smith, a serious contender for the 1912 Olympics before an injury took him out of competition, and his Greek wife, Elizabeth "Ellie" Poulis Smith [96]

In December 2011, Jade Hart, the eldest child of Bret Hart, launched a clothing line called Jade Hart Kimonos. Based out of Calgary the clothing line consists of hand made kimonos made from Canadian silks and other fabrics.[51]

Georgia Hart Annis is an employ at the Cookbook Co. in Calgary. She at one point helped her niece Jennifer Neidhart to get a job there too and Neidhart is now manager of catering for the Cookbook Co.[97]

Wrestling related[edit]

B.J. Annis, husband of Georgia Hart and father of Teddy Hart has operated BJ's Gym in Downtown East Village, Calgary since constructing it in 1971.[98] The gym was a place for Stampede Wrestling's workers to train. In November 2011, his daughter Angie Annis staged an art exhibition at the gymnasium prior to the establishment closing its doors.[98]

Lindsay Hart daughter of Alison Hart and Ben Bassarab as of 2013 works as a successful make up artist often working on her cousin Natalie Neidhart for Total Divas.[99]

Natalya and Tyson Kidd are featured heavily on the WWE reality show Total Divas. Bret, his wife Stephanie, Ellie, Jim and Jennifer Neidhart as well as Kristin, Lachlan and Maddox Culbreth have all appeared on ocation.[100]

Smith's youngest son Chad was the one to receive Bret Hart's trademark sunglasses at the SummerSlam 94 PPV.[101]
