Bruce Hart (1980–1985)
Having been in existence nearly as long as the National Wrestling Alliance itself, Calgary Stampede is one of the oldest and most prestigious promotions in the entire world. Ran by the legendary Hart family, Calgary boasted some of the greatest technical wrestlers the sport had ever seen, and still does. In the eighties, Bad News Allen, The Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs all reached great levels of success but it wasn't until the 1990's that Calgary truly shined as the franchise promotion of the NWA, producing four NWA World Champions in Bret Hart, Davey Boy Smith, Curt Hennig and Owen Hart.
While Bret shined as the promotion's biggest star of the nineties, his focus shifted following the death of his father in 2003 when he sought control of the day to day operations of the promotion behind scenes. It was around this time that Chris Benoit, a Stampede original accomplished something no man had ever done before when he defeated Kurt Angle for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship; he became the first man to hold all three World Titles in the men's division, a accomplishment known as the Triple Crown.
Recently, with the signing of former NWA World champion Kurt Angle, Bret Hart made his return to active competition in a sign that things look to be heading for a show down between two of the most accomplished names in NWA history.
