While he may have never won the big prize in either WWE or WCW, Davey Boy Smith certainly wasn't lacking for championships over the course of his career. In fact, he's won titles in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
In 1987, Smith and Dynamite Kid won the WWF World Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 2, defeating Brutus Beefcake and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine - aka 'The Dream Team" - as The British Bulldogs. It wouldn't be the only time Smith would take home tag team gold. But, we'll get to that.

In 1997, Davey Boy was crowned the very first European Champion, which is pretty appropriate, when you think about it. The previous year, he won his second tag team championship, this time partnering with Owen Hart.
