WWE confirms British Bulldog induction into Hall of Fame

The British Bulldog is officially entering the WWE Hall of Fame.

On today’s episode of After the Bell with Corey Graves, it was announced that Davey Boy Smith would be entering the WWE Hall of Fame this year. This was originally reported by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio last month.

“I’ve had to be quiet for over a month… It’s been confirmed and official… Now I can shout it to the world!!!!,” Smith’s daughter Georgia wrote on Twitter.”MY DAD IS BEING INDUCTED INTO THE @WWE HALL OF FAME! I LOVE YOU DAVEY!!!”

Smith started his career in 1978. He, along with tag team partner Dynamite Kid (Tom Billington) soon moved to Canada to work for Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling. When Hart sold the company to Vince McMahon in 1984, the tag team joined the promotion, holding the World Tag Team titles on one occasion.

The duo left the promotion at the end of 1988, but Smith returned as a singles wrestler in 1990. His most famous match during this run has his Intercontinental title win, defeating Bret Hart in Wembley Stadium at SummerSlam 1992. He was fired from the promotion months later after he, along with the Ultimate Warrior, were caught receiving HGH shipments.

He later returned in 1994 and had another singles run before forming a successful team with brother-in-law Owen Hart. He left the company in 1997 following Survivor Series 1997, but returned in 1999 for one final run before leaving the promotion in 2000. He died on May 18, 2002 after suffering a heart attack.

This year’s Hall of Fame ceremony is scheduled to take place on April 2, 2020 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
