Attitude Era British Bulldog

Recommended Posts

When I think of the Bulldog in the attitude Era I think of a junked up Davey Boy Smith pissing and moaning on the Mic and wearing black boots, blue jeans and a Raw is War t-shirt. Such stark contrast to his glorious early 90's. Character. He was always shite on the Mic, but in the Attitude Era his heel persona never really worked...

He was a bit shit in the Attitude era, wasn't he?

He threw a bin at Steph's head, won the 'Ardcore Title on a British PPV, and started taking a stupid upside-down bump in the corner, seemingly in a deliberate attempt to fuck his own back up even further. Oh, and he seemed to be wearing the same pair of jeans for about a year, without changing them. And usually looked like he'd pissed himself.

 

I loved Attitude Era Bulldog. If he hadn't been a drugs zombie he might finally have gotten the World Title run he'd so clearly deserved since about 1991. What a man our Davey Boy was.

Hahahaha... Agree with all if this. Also, why did his skin turn purple?

 

He was so so so angry when he didn't get his title shot at Rebellion, to the point where he fucked a bucket right into Stephanie's gub without so much as batting an eye lid...

 

In reality of course he was a model husband throughout this era, often bringing a refreshing glass of orange juice to his wife in bed each night before sleepy time. Davey Boy ruled.

I believe the crowning point of Bulldog's return will have been him being the victim of :

 

"1.... 2.... it DOESN'T MATTER if the Rock counts the 3!!"

 

... and the infamous "sliding" People's Elbow.

 

11 year old LaGoosh did enjoy seeing him Rock Bottom'd onto a tray of dog shit though.

 

Roody Poo-Poo.

:laugh: Instantly what I thought of!

 

Sad memory - the total lack of reaction he got at the WWEs UK-only PPV when he was the 'surprise' opponent of Crash Holly's. Knowing how ridiculously over he genuinely was in the UK previously [summerslam 92, One Night Only etc], that was a very sad sight to see.

 

re: Bulldog, I found this on one of the dirtsheet sites.

 

Recently released WWE talent Harry Smith (a/k/a David Hart Smith), who rarely speaks ill of anyone, is very upset with his former employer. The son of the late "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith stated on his Facebook account on Saturday that after much pleading, WWE did not return all of the Hart family possessions he had lent for their memorabilia display at WrestleMania Axxess. This includes his father's ring gear and ring gear of the late Owen Hart, among other priceless possessions. WWE did, however, send him a framed picture of Mae Young as a goodwill gesture. He is further agitated that WWE would call him two weeks after his dismissal from the organization asking for the items he received back.

 

"Well I'm not one to bury any companies or people but I'm afraid I have no choice here. The WWE after great difficulty of my begging, finally sent me back "some" but not all of my familie's possessions from the Hall of Fame/Fan axxess. This includes, my dad's ring gear, my ring gear, owen hart's blue blazer masks, and singlet and lots of priceless family possessions. They sent a framed picture of my dad smashed, half the other stuff missing but they threw in a Mae Young framed picture," Smith wrote.

 

"Then they have the nerve to call me, two weeks after firing me, sniffing around asking if they can have it back for their precious Hall of Fame/fan axxess. Even though I am expendable talent, they wouldn't mind just keeping my family's last remaining wrestling stuff.

 

"Anyone can feel free to post this on dirt sites as I feel the world should know about how selfish and inconsiderate the WWE truly is."

 

Harry's mother, Diana Hart Smith, is also upset with WWE as she feels they carelessly handled her framed drawing of her late husband (click here to view the smashed picture of Davey). She says it was "the last straw."

 

She wrote on Facebook, "This is my drawing of Davey's, and the more info I am sent about this disrespectful injustice, the more shocked I am--this is the second time this has happened with this drawing, and they never took care of it the first time. And then to ask two weeks after Harry's release if we can lend more items to Hall of Fame Fan axxess. These things are from Davey and Owen, my father, all legendary people who are no longer alive and it is difficult to fathom giving up these things which we would never be able to see, since it would go to the WWE HOF Fan Access. These are family possessions and unless Georgia, Harry or I, in the Smith household specifically, are at WWE Fan Access, we cannot see for ourselves.

 

"These aren't belongings of just some random old friends--they are lost family members. With Harry's release, I really doubt I would be flying to Connecticut to see my Hall of Fame memorabilia, and I would probably end up paying admission too. The smashed picture of Davey, which I drew of him, was the last straw, and this is the second time it has happened.

 

"I wonder what the significance of sending an 8 x 10 pic of Mae Young to Harry, Georgia and me was?"

The British Bulldog was one of my favourite wrestlers during the 90's. He really was great in those days.

 

The Attitude Era Davey was kind of sad though. It was abundantly clear that he was a very diminished version of himself.
