5 British wrestlers who should be in the United Kingdom Tournament 2018
Tyler Bate was the first champion. What will happen this year?
The inaugural United Kingdom Championship Tournament generated acclaimed success for WWE and the British wrestling scene. The eventual winner was Tyler Bate becoming the UK Champion. Since then a proportion of the participants have made an impact in NXT.
Therefore, with the announcement of this year's tournament to be held at the Royal Albert Hall, excitement is generating. However, will WWE debut new talent? Who could we expect to see? Whatever WWE decision this event will be a classic.
Here are 5 British Wrestlers who should be in the UK Championship Tournament.
# 5. Davey Boy Smith Jr
Harry Francis Smith is a British-Canadian wrestler currently working for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). Performing under the ring name Davey Boy Smith Jr., he has garnered much acclaim and success in Japan. Furthermore, he is the son of the legendary British Bulldog.
In Japan, Smith works alongside his tag team partner Lance Archer and collectively they are former IWGP & GHC champions. However, Smith deserves one more shot in WWE, due to his release in 2011. Therefore, with the United Kingdom Championship tournament approaching, he would be a perfect candidate.
The Royal Albert Hall serves as the host for the tournament. In 1991 the British Bulldog won a 20-Man Battle Royal. Could his son Davey Boy Smith replicate his father's success and become the United Kingdom Champion?
