I also found it suspicious that Teddy Hart left MLW and there was no issue with the cup staying with the promotion. I'm going to have another look to see if I can find anything to back up the Opera Cup story. 1948 was the first year that Stu Hart wrestled in Calgary, but I'm not sure how relevant that is. Have MLW said which city he won the cup in?
