DH Smith Says He’s Better Than Other Second Generation Wrestlers In WWE

By : Posted on

The Miami Herald has an interview today with SmackDown wrestler DH Smith (Harry Smith), 23, the son of “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.

If you recall, Smith was suspended for 30 days by World Wrestling Entertainment following a violation of the company’s Wellness policy a little over a year ago. He eventually returned to television, but did little of note until being taken off the road this past spring and returning to WWE’s developmental program. Smith said it was his decision to take one step back and return to Florida Championship Wrestling so he could re-focus, mature, and develop his skills to be ready for when he makes the jump back to the main roster.

“I actually decided to come back to FCW and train full time here,” Smith said, “because I just feel like the business is one of those things where you get what you put in, and I want to put in my best efforts, and hopefully we’ll receive great accomplishments and achievements.”

Smith feels he wasn’t quite ready for WWE, as he started working dark matches and house shows when he was 20. “When I first get started with WWE on some dark matches and house shows, I was like 20, 21,” Smith said. “I was quite young, and it was definitely a very good experience, but at the same time I wasn’t really ready. I hadn’t grown up yet. Not to say I was immature, but I just hadn’t grown up — from a physical standpoint as far as filling out and naturally tarning hard and letting it all sort of happen.”

In addition to Smith, there are a number of other second and third generation wrestlers trying to make names for themselves in WWE. Smith believes he’s better than all of them, including Ted DiBiase, Jr.

“Well, this may sound kind of brash, but I think that I’m better than all of them. Joe Hennig is good. Ted DiBiase Jr. has certainly worked hard enough to get to his position, but they aren’t from the dungeon,” Smith said. “It’s only going to be a matter of time before I go up to SmackDown, and then I’m going to show the wrestling world exactly why I am the past, present and future.”

Smith feels being the son of “The British Bulldog” and being a member of the legendary Hart family has helped him get his foot in the door, whereas he probably wouldn’t have received the opportunity otherwise. Smith hopes to take advantage of his opportunity in WWE.

“I feel I have great ability, but there’s no question being a member of the Hart family has helped me land a job here,” he said. “I’m not sure what the fans are going to think. Are they going to compare me to him? Are they going to think, ‘Oh, yeah, he’s all right, but he will never be as good as his dad.’ Being a part of my family does help, but at the same time you really have to step it up.”
