• Huge Rivalry For Harry Smith’s WWE Return Was Canceled
We recently reported that Harry Smith, the son of Old School WWF Legend ‘The British Bulldog’ Davey Boy Smith, returned to WWE in a dark match before an episode of SmackDown.
The Wrestling Observer reported that Harry was already signed in April, in order to bring him to their European ‘NXT UK’ brand to feud with WALTER for the NXT UK Championship:
“The original idea was for the NXT UK brand and be the top UK babyface and feud with WALTER over the Title, but COVID changed all that. Laurinaitis pushed hard for him to be on the main roster and Vince wanted him on SmackDown.”
WALTER recently lost the NXT UK Title to Ilja Dragnunov at NXT TakeOver 36.
