The first son of Stu Hart and the oldest brother of Bret Hart and Owen Hart, Smith Hart is now writing for PWMania.com. Hart posted his debut column talking about WWE and problems in pro wrestling today. Here is an excerpt from his first entry:
“I recently posted on my twitter account, @smithhart1, a simple comment that in return received plenty of replies. The comment read:
“Fans wonder why Cena gets pushes so hard its simple. Cena fans buy ppvs, punk/bryan fans are more apt to pirate ppvs”.
This comment was not meant to disparage CM Punk, Daniel Bryan or John Cena or for that matter any other talented internet darling.
Warning, The following is a clear cut rant from a wrestling fan since I was born. I have never have gone away from the product and stuck through from the attitude era until now. Now that’s over, let’s get into it.
I am a Triple H fan and proud to say it, I have nothing against the Big Show who I think best work is behind him. WWE wonders why there viewership’s is not where it once was. Let’s look at this, you have John Cena as WWE champion leading into SummerSlam, he is defending against the most over guy in the company in Daniel Bryan. You have Daniel Bryan win the title but is screwed by Randy Orton and Triple H. Orton is new champion. Stop right there, Bryan wins title but is screwed. There is your story, its simple go two PPV first with Orton barely retaining then have Bryan win the Title (Story Complete)

Opening Segment: We are live in Oklahoma City, CM Punk Comes to the ring, He says he knows why The Shield attacked him and it’s because he criticized Triple H. He says he wants to live in his WWE universe but calls the “King of Kings’ dense. He says that Triple and the “Authority” are the biggest losers he has ever seen. Stephanie McMahon comes out and wishes us a happy thanksgiving. She says that there is no way that Triple H had The Shield attack him because its below them She says they were just as upset that The Shield attacked him then she hypes the Contract Signing later tonight. She adds that if he has any other comments then he can ask Kane. He comes out; he says the “Authority” had nothing to do with the attack. Punk asks him when he became an ass kisser but Kane advise him not to go down this road. Kane adds that they are not the enemy and not to go down this path. Punk challenges him and Kane wants to but Stephanie holds him back. The Shield comes out; they surround the ring as Punk gets a chair. Stephanie stops them and tells them to respect Punk. Kane announces that CM Punk will take on The Shield (all three members) at TLC.

In addition to winning the inaugural season of Tough Enough, I famously eliminated The Undertaker at the Royal Rumble and trained under WWE superstars Tazz and Al Snow.
WWE has had this little pay per view called TLC a.k.a. Tables, Ladders and Chairs. It is one of the greatest gimmicks in the history of wrestling but does it deserve a PPV named after it?
Back in 1999 at No Mercy PPV the Hardy’s took on Edge and Christian in a ladder match. Then the following WrestleMania and SummerSlam had a triple Ladder match. Then in the spring of 2001 Mick Foley who was the commissioner at the time made that famous line saying “Tables, Ladders and Chairs oh my” Once they had their crazy and spot fest match at WrestleMania 17 the match was sold in the hearts of the WWE Universe. Hardy’s brought the Ladders while the Dudley Boys had tables and The two future world champions Edge and Christian had the chairs.
