Former WWE Superstar Davey Boy Smith Jr. has spoken about WWE's plans to bring him back to the company and why it was scrapped. Smith Jr. revealed that WWE initially wanted to bring him to NXT UK but that did not materialize due to COVID-19.

Davey Boy Smith Jr., the son of the legendary "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith, was with the company from 2006 to 2011, before being released. He won the tag team titles twice with Tyson Kidd during his tenure with the company.

In an interview with Metro, Davey Boy Smith Jr. stated that he had talks with WWE over returning, but COVID-19 put a spanner in the works to that plan. He said, though, that he is still in negotiations with WWE.

"There's been quite a bit of interest and a little bit of back and forth talk with myself and the company. I think that the plan – or what they were hoping – was for me to come to NXT UK. But unfortunately right now because of Covid, those doors are kind of locked, we'll see. There has been interest in me going to NXT down here in Orlando. I live down here in Tampa, Florida, so I've just been feeling things out, trying to get a lay of the land, so to speak. We're discussing and talking. I can't exactly say anything for sure, but there've been talks."

He is set to feature in Josh Barnett's Bloodsport event this Saturday.
