Davey Boy Smith Jr. has signed with MLW!
Over the recent holidays, Major League Wrestling was able to ink its new Middleweight Champion to a contract, agreeing to terms with Hart Foundation member, Teddy Hart.
It’s been what could be called a “free agent frenzy” for all promotions recently from WWE, Ring Of Honor and the freshly announced All Elite Wrestling, as they all jockey to sign some of the industry’s top talents before they get locked down somewhere else.
Today, MLW has announced another signing, revealing they now have another member of The Hart Foundation under contract in Davey Boy Smith Jr.:
DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. SIGNS WITH MLW
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.
