WWE working on a documentary on Davey Boy Smith, Released NXT talent returns
WWE is working on a documentary about the life and career of “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.
Davey Boy Smith Jr. worked a match at last Sunday’s Bloodsport event. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that a WWE representative was at the show because the company is doing a documentary about his father.
It was also noted that WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network is also working on a story about Davey By Smith for next year. The company was filming Smith Jr. all weekend from training at the gym to working the show.
Bulldog found a ton of success while in the WWE including reigns as Intercontinental, European, Hardcore, and Tag Team Champion. He passed away at the age of 39 on May 18, 2002.
“The British Bulldog” was announced for the 2020 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony was postponed.
The belief is that the ceremony will take place next year over WrestleMania 37 weekend if WWE can have fans attend.
Batista, The nWo (Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman), The Bella Twins, JBL, and more were also part of the class.
