Teddy Hart was the youngest person ever to sign a developmental contract with WWE in 1998. He had a bright future ahead of him, but a whole slew of legal issues ultimately damaged his reputation. In fact, even Brian Pillman Jr. has cut off communication with Teddy Hart.
Brian Pillman Jr. is one of the original stars of AEW, as he signed with the company back in 2019. He had a solid feud with MJF last year but hasn’t done all that much since then.
Prior to joining AEW, he was in MLW as part of The New Era Hart Foundation alongside Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Teddy Hart. While speaking to Nick Hausman, Pillman Jr. revealed that he has cut off all communication with Teddy Hart.
“I kind of just stopped communicating with him and I kind of cut him off quite a while ago,” he explained, “And most people have commended that decision. They said, ‘You’re smart for doing that.’ I love them to death. Of course, I love the Hart family and they’ve done so good by me.
Teddy is sort of the big elephant in the room when it comes to the family and everything. And I’ve just made it abundantly clear to everybody that I don’t associate with him anymore, just based off of my experiences with him in MLW.
I’ve made these decisions long before the documentary came out, right? I wanted to separate myself from Teddy. And hoped that he would get help. I just didn’t want to keep his wrestling going. I didn’t want to keep getting him booked and keep having him a part of my stable, if he’s just going to be Teddy, right?”
Pillman Jr. will be squaring off against Kerry Morton at Big Time Wrestling’s Return of the Dragon event. As for Teddy Hart, a new documentary “Dangerous Breed: Crime. Cons. Cats” based on him, recently dropped on Peacock. Regardless, Pillman Jr. knows better than to associate himself with Hart.
