Tyson Kidd Believes Davey Boy Smith Jr. Has Been Gone From WWE For Way Too Long

Tyson Kidd would like to see his former tag team partner back with the WWE.

Speaking with Danial Ali of the DropKick Podcast, Kidd was asked about Davey Boy Smith Jr. and where he sees the free agent going next and if a return to WWE is possible. Here is what he said:

GCW Planet Death Results (9/26): Masashi Takeda, Effy, Nick Wayne, Joey Janela, More In Action

“Man, I’ve been trying to convince him to come back for a very long time, and I’ve never left. I’m waiting on this guy to come back. He’s funny. He’s always been this way his whole life and it’s all the credit to him. He kind of always - and I mean this in a positive way - marches to the beat of his own drum, and he does his own thing. He’s not easily swayed, which I really like about him. It’s not like I just talked to him one day and [said] "hey man come back here" and then he goes "okay," and then comes back and a month later he’s unhappy."

Smith Jr. most recently worked with MLW, last appearing on Fusion in an Opera Cup match on December 2, 2020, which he lost to Low Ki. Founder Court Bauer thanked Davey for his contributions to the promotion over his two and a half years after the event.

Kidd continued on, saying that whatever Davey does next will be carefully considered.

“He weighs everything out and he puts a lot of thought into everything he does. I know obviously, [how] the world has changed these last nine months has affected him in terms of, he just hasn’t been wrestling very often. Not until the last bit he had a couple of matches finally, but he’s supposed to go to Japan and stuff and those plans obviously got altered... So where he ends up honestly at this moment, I don’t know. I recorded a thing for, who knows when this will come out, but I recorded for WWE Icons on the Network for Davey Boy. They asked me about Harry and I said hopefully when this comes out he’s back here.

The sky's the limit with him. He's 6 foot 5. He's third-generation. I believe he's been gone way too long, for nine years now. In those nine years, I think he's found himself. I think he's changed a lot and I think the company has changed a lot. If everything aligns right it could be great synergy. We have so many different branches now. There's Raw, there's SmackDown. Both are awesome, but there's also NXT, and with Harry, there is also NXT UK. There are so many different options for this guy. Maybe he goes and takes over, for example, NXT UK, and then he goes to NXT and takes over. Maybe he goes and starts conquering [all of] these things. I would love for him to come back, but more than anything, whatever is going to make him happy.”

Kidd is currently working as a producer with WWE.

Icons will premiere on WWE Network on January 31. Yokozuna will be featured in the first episode.

Lex Luger, Rob Van Dam, Beth Phoenix, and “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith will also be featured subjects of the series.
