The British Bulldog had an excellent WWF career prior to joining WCW in 1993. Whether it was tagging up with Dynamite Kid in the British Bulldogs tag team or Davey’s solo work that led to the critically acclaimed Summerslam 1992 match with Bret Hart, The British Bulldog became an instantly recognizable superstar during the WWF’s glory days. When Davey Boy Smith was released from his WWF contract towards the end of 1992, World Championship Wrestling were quick to sign Davey to a brand new deal. WCW were planning on expanding their business and brand with a focus on their European tours, so bringing in The British Bulldog made a lot of sense.
Davey was pushed right to the top in WCW almost instantly, challenging Big Van Vader for the WCW championship at Slamboree 1993 and again at a Clash of the Champions special. The British Bulldog also formed an alliance with Sting, creating the “Superpowers” tag team that was face Vader and Sid Vicious at Beach Blast 1993, many will remember this one for the mini movie that told the story of the match. From here, Davey Boy was scheduled to work with Rick Rude but once again, Davey Boy Smith was released from his contract.

    Another amazing video man. You brought attention to some good matches in history that have been somewhat pushed aside in their relevance. It's good that some people still appreciate those parts despite the comedy that came along with the promotion of said matches.

    It always pissed me off how Bret claims full credit for their classic Intercontinental match and claims he carried him all the way. Davey was extremely talented and smooth in the ring and (as a fan) I never saw anyone carrying him through his matches. I'm glad WCW saw his potential here, but we never got to see WCW programming in the UK during this time so sadly I never even knew any of this was happening.

    Excellent video. Smith should have beaten Vader at Slamborre 93 for the belt. After that match, he just became Sting’s buddy and the polish was off.

    If you could have seen Davey Boy like we did in Stampede when he first got going, when he was small, he may not have been an innovator in the ring, like his cousin Dynamite Kid, but man could he move and wrestle just as well, Davey, Bret, Owen and Dynamite all could move in that ring

    18:09 Wrong - Davey Boy was not working for All Star (Brian Dixon) in 1994 - he was workign for Max Crabtree's Ring Wrestling Stars - the former Joint Promotions. Big Daddy had retired at the end of 1993 and Davey Boy was working on RWS/Crabtree shows as Big Daddy's replacement - often with Daddy himself sat at ringside. Davey's return to the WWF later in '94 was what sent the Crabtrees into their final terminal promotional tailspin after several years of losing out a promotional war to All Star and their lead heel Kendo Nagasaki.

    Davey was one of those extremely talented performers that was underrated. But his biggest flaw was the quality of his matches rested on his opponents abilities examples Bret and Regal. If he wasn't all about the party and more about the work and actually had confidence in his own abilities he would've gone so much farther

    Back in the days WCW was so much better than WWF, even there attitude era where wrestler punch and kick WCW where still wrestling and putting on better matches then WWF. RIP Davey boy suck is run was cut short in WCW i remember 1993.

    This really defeats the notion that only Bret Hart could get a good match out of Davey Boy. He's like a less popular version of Orton. He can turn it on when he wants to.

    British Bulldog had 2 runs in WCW. Neither was that good. He came in 93 and was released. Came back to WCW after Bret Hart lost in the Montreal Screwjob at Survivor Series. He stayed from 97-98 and got fired again. Then he went back to then WWF where he would be fired again.

    Good video. Living in the UK, WCW on uk tv varied from region to region.... when I visited cousins in London it would be shown on Saturday mornings, and when on holiday in midlands late Saturdays evenings.... living in Scotland it was 1am it would be shown, so missed it most the time. Had no idea Davy was in WCW until I picked up a general wrestling magazine that had a article on him.

    Davey Boy Smith was super over in WCW. If he would have won the WCW world title it may have changed the course of company history over the next several years. He was super over as a baby face and maybe WCW might not have gone after Hulk Hogan in 1994 if the Bulldog would have behaved.
