• Eric Bischoff Says There Were Never Any Plans For Late WWF Legend To Be In The nWo

During a recent edition of the 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff was asked about the rumor of late WWF Legend “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith being planned to join the nWo, but the plans being dropped when Davey boy signed a new contract with WWF.

Below is what Bischoff said:

“I can’t speak to anything that happened between Davey Boy and the WWF because I wasn’t there. That’s for Bruce Prichard. I can tell you unequivocally 100% certain without doubt of mind without any hesitation in my voice Davey Boy Smith was never going to be a part of the nWo.

There was never any discussion of recreating the Lex Luger moment from the year prior on Nitro. That is complete bullsh*t.

Kind of in the same category as ‘Mable was the 3rd man’ it is fabricated bullsh*t reported as fact.”
