Davey Boy Smith Jr. Wishes He Could've Worked With Goldberg, Jokes He Wouldn't Take Any Superkicks

Davey Boy Smith Jr. gives his thoughts on Bill Goldberg and his uncle Bret Hart's legendary disdain for the former WCW star.

Death, taxes, and Bret Hart never missing an opportunity to throw some verbal shots at Bill Goldberg. These are certainties in life. Hart's dislike of Goldberg stems from their match at WCW Starrcade 1999 and a kick from Goldberg that directly led to Bret Hart eventually retiring.

While Bret Hart hasn't let go of his hard feelings toward Bill Goldberg, not everyone in the Hart family feels the same way. Davey Boy Smith Jr., the son of the British Bulldog and nephew of Bret Hart, recently spoke to Sean Ross Sapp about his uncle's issues with Goldberg.

Davey says he understands his uncle's viewpoint, but he likes both guys and wishes he could have gotten a chance to work with Bill Goldberg. However, Smith wasn't shy about cracking a joke about not wanting to take a kick from the former WWE Universal Champion.

"I understand where he’s coming from with that situation, it did cost him his career. Might’ve, possibly, augmented what happened with his stroke. I understand. That’s his beef," said Smith of his uncle's feelings. "Personally, I like Bill a lot. I was hoping maybe one day we could have worked together. Don’t get any superkicks from him, of course. Spears and Jackhammers are fine, maybe not that. But no, I like both guys. He obviously has issues to this day with it and I understand where he’s coming from. But I like Bill, too. It is what it is. It’s not my place to say whether or not he’s right or wrong to say it. That’s his opinion. We don’t agree on everything and that’s how he feels.

"So you have to respect where he’s coming from," Smith continued. "I don’t have anything good or bad to say about it really. It is what it is. It’s too bad. It’s like with Austin and Owen, when he dropped him with his piledriver. Just one of those things that happened. Thankfully Steve was able to continue his career after that, but it definitely left a nasty scar on his career and I think probably cut it short with the way he had to exit the wrestling business, all other injuries and stuff included."
