WWE has many prospects in the pro wrestling world, and some of them have already seen a spotlight within the company. Davey Boy Smith is often spoken about as a man who could come back to WWE, but he has other options available as well.
While speaking to the DropKick Podcast, Tyson Kidd brought up Davey Boy Smith Jr and efforts he’s currently going through to convince him to make a WWE return. So far, that has yet to make him sign on the dotted line, but Davey Boy Smith Jr has a lot of encouragement to do so.
“Man I’ve been trying to convince him to come back for a very long time and I’ve never left. I’m waiting on this guy to come back. He’s funny, he’s interesting. He’s always been this way his whole life and then you know it’s all the credit to him.”
“He kind of always and I mean this in a positive way marches to the beat of his own drum and he kind of does his own thing. He’s not easily swayed, Which I really like about him. It’s not like I just talked to him one day and I’m like ‘hey man come back here,’ and then he goes, ‘okay’ and then just like you know comes back and then a month later he’s unhappy.”
“He weighs everything out and he puts a lot of thought into everything he does and I know obviously how the world has changed these last nine months has affected him, in terms of he just hasn’t been wrestling very often. Not until the last bit he had a couple matches finally but he’s supposed to go to Japan and stuff and those plans got altered.”
“So where he ends up honestly at this moment I don’t know. I recorded a thing for who knows when this will come out but I recorded WWE icons on the WWE Network for Davey Boy. They asked me about Harry and I said hopefully when this comes out he’s back here.”
Davey Boy Smith Jr left MLW, and there is a possibility that he will make a WWE return. He also has opportunities in other places, but the pandemic might stop him from making it across the globe to take advantage everything.
This is an interesting situation, because Davey Boy Smith Jr could contribute a lot to WWE. It’s always a risk when signing with WWE, one that Smith understands all too well.
