It’s like 1996 all over again as two rival professional wrestling programs go head-to-head tonight with both promising to have big shows.

TNA makes a move to Monday night making a rare live iMPACT! broadcast showcasing the debut of the legendary Hulk Hogan. WWE RAW will counter by upping the ante on their long running show by featuring the return of Bret “The Hitman” Hart after 12 years away from the business.

Less Than Three Dynasty

I wrote a post last night about how much I was enjoying the ECW program on SciFi recently, but by the end of the night it was no longer relevant in any way.  So, I’ve distilled it down to what I was really focused on and present it here as a replacement.

I’m not going to lie to you, if you have no interest in professional wrestling this post will not be for you.  Indulge me for a moment as I talk about it though.  There’s a lot of this stuff on TV (7-10 hours any given week), and most of it is not very good.  However, I’ve spent a lot of my life as a fan, and I’m very excited about a new group of characters that have come on the scene in World Wrestling Entertainment.

The Hart Dynasty are a new incarnation of some WWF classics that I couldn’t get enough of as a kid:  The British Bulldogs and The Hart Foundation.  This new Hart Dynasty is comprised of David Hart Smith, Natalia Neidhart, and Tyson Kidd.  So, it’s the son of British Bulldogs’ Davey Boy Smith, the daughter of  The Hart Foundation’s Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, and the last student of the Hart Dungeon wrestling school in Calgary.  Basically, it’s the fusion of my favorite wrestlers from when I was 11.

How could I not love this?  The Hart Dynasty can be seen on Smackdown! beginning this Friday night on MyNetwork  at 8PM.  ECW airs Tuesday nights on SciFi (or is it SyFy now?) at 10PM, but I have no reason to mention that anymore.  And if you’ve read this far here’s a treat.
