The Hart family is the most important wrestling family in Canadian history and has had a huge impact on wrestling all over the world. This article will take a look at how different stars that have passed through the WWE are related to each other.
Stu HartStu Hart is the patriarch of the Hart wrestling family. Stu and his wife Helen had eight sons that joined the wrestling business and four daughter that married wrestlers. Stu was the owner of Stampede wrestling and the training room in the family basement, known as the Dungeon, has produced an impressive number of star wrestlers. Future WWE World Champions that spent time in the dungeon include Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Billy Graham, and Chris Jericho. Stu passed away in 2003 at the age of 88.
Bret Hart, a son of Stu Hart, is one of the most successful wrestlers in the history of the sport. He is a former World Champion in both the WWE and WCW. His final match in the WWE against Shawn Michaels, known as the Montreal Screwjob, is the most controversial match in wrestling history. In 2007, Bret wrote his autobiography, which I feel is the greatest wrestling book ever written. It will be available in the U.S. in 2008.
