WWE News: Former WWE and current New Japan star Davey Boy Smith Jr. backstage at Monday Night Raw
What's the story?
Former two-time WWE tag champion Davey Boy Smith Jr. was backstage at Monday Night Raw this week. He posed for a photo with his cousin Natalya, who herself is now on the Raw roster following last month's Superstar Shakeup.
In case you didn't know...
Davey Boy Smith Jr. is the son of the legendary British Bulldog. During three different stints with the WWE, the British Bulldog won the Intercontinental Championship once and the WWE Tag Team Championships twice (once with The Dynamite Kid and once with Owen Hart).
The heart of the matter
Take a look at Natalya's post on Twitter below:
Davey Boy Smith Jr. is currently part of the Killer Elite Squad tag team in New Japan Pro Wrestling with Lance Archer. They have held the IWGP Tag Team Championship a total of three times.
Smith was in the WWE from 2006 to 2011. He started out in the developmental territories Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship wrestling before being called up to the main roster in 2007.
Smith didn't start making traction with the WWE until he formed the Hart Dynasty with Tyson Kidd in the spring of 2009. The group was managed by Natalya, and they would win the WWE Tag Team Championship and World Tag Team Championship once each together.
It is unknown what's next for the Killer Elite Squad after losing a 10-man tag team match at Dontaku earlier this month, but it is likely that Smith and Archer will be a part of the Dominion card when it takes place from Osaka, Japan on June 9th.
It wouldn't surprise me to see Davey Boy Smith Jr. back in the WWE sometime in the future.
It's amazing to think that he's still only 32-years-old and given the work he's doing in New Japan, I think he definitely deserves a fresh start with the company.
