“The British Bulldog’s gonna win, whether he wants to or not!” This is perhaps one of the most famous fan quotes in the history of WWE and now, 28 years later the person who said this has been found.
Long before Nicholas became a WWE Tag Team Champion, decades before Izzy captured the hearts of the NXT Universe, and well before the “CM Punk Kid” was in the front row of every major indie show ever in existence, one young hero, known affectionately as “The British Bulldog Kid,” stood outside Wembley Stadium for the 1992 WWE SummerSlam event and made wrestling history.
The main event of the only SummerSlam to ever take place outside of North America featured Davey Boy Smith attempting to wrestle away the WWE Intercontinental Championship from his brother-in-law, Bret “Hitman” Hart. It was an instant classic, with tensions in the Hart family being played up in a WWE storyline for the very first time. However, the outcome of the match was never in question as "British Bulldog Kid," dressed in a Big Boss Man hat and a pink and black windbreaker that could only come from the 90s, told us all exactly what was going to happen well before the match even started.
This has become a meme on the internet over the years with mock Hasbro action figures even being made of the young fan. Now, they have finally been found.
Wrestling Arcade shared screenshots of a direct message on Twitter with Stacy Craig, someone who is close to the long-searched individual. In the direct message, Stacy reveals that “British Bulldog Kid” is named Aimee and she was a massive fan of both Bret Hart and Davey Boy Smith.
As it turns out, Aimee was unaware of her popularity on the internet and was only made aware of it because Stacy commented on the embedded video at the top of this article. Now, Aimee will be interviewed by Wrestle With Andy, giving 2020 the feel-good story that it needs.
Current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is very excited by this news and is hopeful to recreate this moment when WWE is able to return to the United Kingdom.

How serendipitous that this person would be found the very same year that Davey Boy Smith was finally selected to enter the WWE Hall of Fame. Now, if we could only get a “Where Are They Now?” about the Slammy Award-winning “Miz Girl..."
