Why did Davey Boy Smith Jr. disappear again?

Very often in WWE Superstars reappear after years that in the last period had evaporated into thin air. Such absences are not always due to layoffs or injuries. In fact, many times these wrestlers have not been used by the WWE or moved to play other roles backstage, such as that of road agent or trainer of the young generation.

What we want to tell you today, however, is the story of a former couple champion of the company, who after years of his release, had returned to sign an agreement with the McMahons, now several months ago and has never appeared before.

to the Stamford-based company's TV screens. According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Davey Boy Smith Jr. has been in the sights of Tony Khan. The AEW President has reportedly expressed his interest in signing Smith after Chris Jericho's recent Halloween party.

It has also been said that WWE is open to bringing back the former Hart Dynasty member.

Backstage news on Davey Boy Smith Jr.

As confirmed by multiple sources inside the WWE and also by several very important sites in the sector, several months ago, the former member of the Hart Dynasty, a team composed of Tyson Kidd, Natalya and Davey Boy Smith Jr., the son of the late British Bulldog, would have signed a new contract with the McMahon family, to return in strength to the roster of the company, but since then there has been no news of him.

According to the best-informed, there was initially some plan for the former tag team champion along with Tyson Kidd to debut at Smackdown, but eventually WWE would change its mind, directing it to NXT UK. To date, however, apart from a role in a dark match before Smackdown, there has been no trace of Davey Boy Smith Jr., as also reported by Dave Meltzer in the latest update of the Wrestling Observer, to which he said: "Note that since he signed with the company and debuted weeks ago in a dark match before the Smackdown tapings, Harry Smith has completely disappeared from all shows, even backstage." At the moment neither the news of his release, nor further news regarding his future in the WWE shows would have emerged, so the mystery "Davey Boy Smith Junior" deepens even more.

As things stand, reports have also claimed that The Bulldog could choose to re-sign with MLW. The former WWE Superstar seemingly doesn't have any preferences and will make a business-wise decision.
