411 Indy Update: Teddy Hart Controversy (Again), Rikishi News
Posted by Josh Nason on 07.25.2004
The new king of controversy stirs it up again...
It's my last report, y'all. Charles O'Brien takes over this week. For those of you wondering, keep sending things into firstname.lastname@example.org....thanks!
Everyone's favorite jerkstore - Teddy Hart - is at it again. I love when I get statements from talent/owners apparently in response to some situation, but they include nothing on what the situation is about which would help.
This is what I got from Hart first, pardon the language:
"I've always prided myself on having the balls to say what I feel is right and wrong about the wrestling business. What comes out of my mouth is the gospel truth. And the business is full of chicken shits and cowards. H2 was created so no one could censor Ted Hart. Due to my comments on the internet radio show, I've been censored. Public notice yestyerday that Ted Hart has lost his position in H2 and for all you internet fucking retards, Ted Hart is H2 and because all you ungreatful mother fuckers thought you were so smart. How smart are you now? H2 is over! You cannot demote Vince McMahon. You're not going to demote Ted Hart. All I tried to do is give you another show and entertainment. But, you shit on me, so now I am shitting on you. Now H2 is demoted to MLW status. And tell the world that my special guest will be accompaning me to the ring whether or not the world like it. Do any of you smarks remember the word "Matrats"? Check tomorrow. There will be no more H2."
Uh huh. Hart was working for the Boston-based H2 Wrestling promotion, which is owned by former MLW owner Court Bauer. I guess Hart owned part of it? No idea, as you can tell. So here's what I got next...
"Ted Hart, through roommate Chasyn Rance, has asked me to make the following things known:
- Ted was working an angle with ROH.
- ROH & H2 were to work together.
- Court didn't want to work with ROH.
- Court tried to censor Ted.
- Ted will not be censored.
- Ted has pulled out his money.
- H2 is dead like MLW.
- Ted can bring any guest he wants anywhere he wants.
- Ted and his backers have pulled their $500,000 and all bookings with buildings."
Uh huh, pt. II. I then got a cell phone number to call about the 'demise of H2 Pro Wrestling,' which was for 'serious inquiries only.' Bizarre at best. I can't believe I'm getting out of this racket! H2, by the way, is scheduled for a show this Saturday in Braintree, MA, with Mike Modest, Chris Hero, Austin Aries, Jack Evans and more. The fed also signed Sabu vs. Super Dragon for its 8/28 TV taping in Braintree. (www.h2wrestling.com)
