You may not think that you know who Dennis Stamp is but chances are: you just may if you've ever seen the documentary Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows or Beyond the Mat. In the latter documentary, Dennis Stamp is seen working out every day even though he hadn't wrestled a match in approximately ten years. He explained that you never know when your next match is going to happen but it was a somewhat sad examination of someone who was clearly clinging on to one last shred of hope in the wrestling business. Still, he was the very first opponent for Bret Hart and was very close friends with Terry Funk as well as being admired as a pretty genuinely nice guy.
It is our sad responsibility to report that he is not doing very well these days. Stamp has been battling cancer for a while now and it re-emerged in September and spread throughout more of his body than before.
We will keep you updated on the situation.
