CWE Presents A Tribute To Smith Hart August 10th In Calgary.

The wrestling world was saddened and heartbroken this week by the passing of Smith Hart of the legendary Hart Family.

As the oldest of the Hart siblings including Bret & Owen and the father to current CWE star "The Prodigy" Matt Hart, Smith has decades of history written with his name on it dating back to his father's Stampede Wrestling to being involved and in a CWE ring just months ago in one of the most heated and memorable segments CWE has produced since entering the city of Calgary.

Smith's love and passion for the business was very evident and very strong as he proudly stood in his son's corner last fall when Matt challenged Nick "Magnus" Aldis for the Global Force Wrestling World Heavyweight Title.

This past winter just hours after being released from the hospital Smith made an impromptu appearance at CWE's tour stop in Calgary which resulted in him taking personal offense to some choice words and actions by Chase Owens and Tony Kozina and entering the ring to take it up with them face to face to a thunderous ovation from the Calgary, Alberta audience.

The ovation quickly turned to shock as just before he was about to get his hands on Owens he was blasted with a low blow by Kozina and almost package piledriven by Owens before his son Matt hit the ring to save his father and set up a series of matches which most recently saw Matt tap out Kozina to the Sharpshooter in Calgary.

Now in collaboration with Matt Hart, Canadian Wrestling's Elite will pay its respects and tribute to the legendary Smith Hart for him being gracious enough to lend his name and experience to CWE even while in poor health and for believing in our brand as we have grown in Calgary.

The event will feature a ten bell salute for Smith Hart with the whole card being dedicated in his honor.

The main event will be a tribute to Smith as well with his son "The Prodigy" Matt Hart and Armed & Dangerous, "Dynamite" Dan & "Pistol" Pete challenging the Canadian Unified Junior Heavyweight Champion "Tornado" Tony Kozina and two partners of his choosing to still be announced as a continuation to the heated war that all began when Smith Hart stood up for his family in Calgary earlier this year.
