The COVID-19 pandemic is still a huge problem in the world and WWE has sadly seen a few cases. Harry Smith was set to make his debut for WWE, but those plans stalled due to the virus.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Harry Smith contracted COVID-19 shortly after his first dark match with WWE. He was involved in a dark match prior to the first SmackDown with live fans. A lot of people were expecting his return to the company, but that didn’t happen.
It was noted that Harry Smith, son of WWE Hall of Famer “British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith, is okay now. That didn’t stop COVID from messing with his debut plans.
One of the reasons Harry Smith hasn’t been seen since he did the one dark match with Austin Theory is that he contracted COVID. He’s fine now and was backstage for the draft show in Baltimore
Since Harry Smith was around in Baltimore, that is a good sign. We will have to see what WWE does with him in the meantime, because he has a ton of potential and has grown in tremendous ways since his last run with the company. Hopefully, this is the last story we ever have to run about COVID-19 causing issues in the world, but that seems to be a lofty dream at this point.
