For the most part, the Hart family tried to get back together, Bret really pushed for that after his stroke, with some it worked and with some it didn't.


Vince hit the sweet spot with some of them, Diana (not the most stable girl in the world), Ellie, and some of the others, and Bruce and his wife at the time, saw this as an opportunity to get back into or into the WWE. For all of its time as Stampede Wrestling, they weren't financially stable. Smith at the time was just insane. Bret and Keith came out on Owen and Martha's side of that, and worked hard with her and her legal team.



Both sides did some really unsavery things. The WWE and the document stealing by the Harts. Martha's legal team promising splits of any compensation to each family member to testify on her side.


The whole thing was pretty unsavory.

As much as it was tough to watch that episode, this bonus scene made me smile:

I couldnít even finish watching it
Like many of us I was a huge fan of Owen Hart, watching him growing up on Stampede.
The utter senseless of his death is something I just canít handle
I watched about 20 minutes and realized it is not something I wish to relive at all. Couldnít do it

Kimura was the centerpiece for New Japan's planned expansion of STARDOM in 2020/21. She was given a match on their Tokyo Dome show and everything.

That's tremendously sad, I was following the story last night. The dark side of the web is it enables people to anonymously bully and act like aholes. It'd be nice if they could be prosecuted or exposed.


Its a pretty tragic loss, not because she was a wrestler, but because it shouldn't have happened.

Stadium Stampede was MOTY for me. This is what Money in the Bank should have been.

I don't know what the hell money in the bank was this year, but it certainly wasn't money in the bank.

Such sad news about Kimura. I saw her at the Stardom show in Tokyo the night before Wrestle Kingdom, then got to see her wrestle at WK in front of 50,000 fans for the first time too the next night. She was super talented. Very sad day in the wrestling world.

Cena is a pretty stand up guy so I believe it was him.

Agreed, WWE had a great idea for Money in the Bank but in the end it was just okay. I think having both the men and women’s at the same time really hurt it, and it all felt really rushed.

Stadium Stampede was great, they took their time, and really gave the spots time to breath and gave everyone their moment.

Sammy Guevara is a treasure and the best chicken #### heel in wrestling in a while. The Eddie comparisons are fair IMO.
