Teddy Hart was the youngest person ever to sign a developmental contract with WWE in 1998. Once considered a can’t miss future star, Hart suffered a meteoric downfall before he was ever able to reach the top. A series of legal problems including charges of sexual assault, DUI, drug possession, and more have constantly derailed Teddy’s efforts to make it back to the big time.
WWE has an incredibly close business relationship with NBC Universal. The broadcast giant pays huge money to broadcast Monday Night Raw on USA. The entire WWE Network is now hosted on their Peacock streaming platform in the United States.
Peacock is now working on a Teddy Hart documentary. According to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the project is being put together independently of WWE. The company has warned talent not to take part in it.
“Peacock is working on a documentary on Teddy Hart. This would have nothing to do with their deal with WWE although WWE is aware of it and kind of warned people against participating. One person who said they were warned by two companies including WWE about it being negative said he did it anyway.
People interviewed noted they were digging deep into Hart’s past and there was a lot of questions about bad ex-relationships. The tentative release date is December.”
Hart is largely blackballed from the largest pro wrestling organizations. Peacock working on a documentary on a wrestler that WWE wants nothing to do with is quite curious. Nevertheless, it could make for compelling viewing. We will have to see which WWE talents decided to participate.
