MLW will be posthumously honoring Gary Hart at their Dallas area television tapings next month.
It was announced today that Hart will be “posthumously recognized for his contributions to Dallas and professional wrestling” at MLW’s War Chamber TV tapings in North Richland Hills, Texas on Saturday, September 7. Hart’s sons Jason and Chad will be in attendance for the tribute.
“I personally owe a debt of gratitude to Gary,” MLW’s Court Bauer said. “Without Gary Hart’s presence in my life as a mentor, there is no Major League Wrestling today. It is long overdue that he be honored in the city he helped to put on the map in this great sport.”
The tapings are taking place at the NYTEX Sports Centre and will be headlined by a War Chamber match, with Tom Lawlor, Ross Von Erich, Marshall Von Erich, and a partner facing Contra Unit (Jacob Fatu, Josef Samael, Simon Gotch, and the group’s newest member that debuted on last week’s MLW Fusion episode).
The War Chamber match has War Games-style rules and can be won by pinfall, submission or surrender once everyone is in the ring.
