MLW announced that they have signed Davey Boy Smith Jr. to a multi-year deal. The company posted the following statement on their website:
The rise of the Hart Foundation in Major League Wrestling has been one of the more exciting stories to watch over the past half year. Dominating competition in singles, tags and trios action, their march to the top has been felt in multiple divisions. Now the Hart Foundation’s presence in MLW is guaranteed to continue for years to come as Davey Boy Smith Jr. has officially signed a multi-year deal with MLW.
“Davey is very special,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “He’s been a part of MLW dating back to when he was just 18 and I know I speak for fans and the league when I say we’re very excited to see what the big guy does in 2019 and beyond.”
Smith joins Teddy Hart and Brian Pillman Jr., who signed with the league in 2018.
In addition to MLW, Smith will continue to compete in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where the Bulldog has won the coveted IWGP Tag Team belts 3 times.
It's been a busy couple of weeks for MLW as they also recently signed Teddy Hart and Gringo Loco to deals. As mentioned in the announcement, Smith Jr will continue to compete for NJPW. He is scheduled to wrestle at Wrestle Kingdom 13 on Jan. 4.
