In 2020, after multiple years of grassroots campaigns across the web, many wrestling fans felt a sense of vindication as WWE finally nominated The British Bulldog, Davey Boy Smith, to be inducted into their Hall of Fame.
In a new interview with Spencer Love, Brian Pillman Jr., a close family friend of the Hart family, commented on the induction of The British Bulldog and gave his thoughts on the potential of his father, Brian Feldman, being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day.
The following quotes for passed along by Spencer Love.
While discussing Dave Boy, Pillman would his induction well-deserved icing on the cake. He remarked, “That’s just the ultimate icing on the cake. To me, he’s so deserving of that honor and I could never imagine a world where he doesn’t get that award. To me, it’d be unreal for him to not receive that, and it’s just the absolute, utmost honor that you can frickin’ have. To be in the WWE Hall of Fame, I mean, that’s what people dream of after lifelong careers, and for that guy to have passed away the way he did and what it meant to his son to still carry on his legacy that his son rescued Bret Hart. At that point, I was like ‘alright, he’d better get in the Hall of Fame now, because he just saved Bret Hart!”
In regards to his own father, Brian would say that it is simply a matter of timing and perhaps they're waiting for the proper time to give Brian Pillman his own solo induction.
“I think it’s just timing, and maybe they want to give my Dad his own time. Maybe they want to make it even more special for him, to give him a full-on induction into the Hall of Fame. I try not to be selfish with those things, because I understand how show business works and I understand how this business works, so I’m never the guy to get upset at stuff like that,” he’d say.
