Davey Boy Smith Jr. Addresses AEW And NJPW

Davey Boy Smith Jr. Addresses AEW And NJPW

Davey Boy Smith recently appeared on WINCLY Podcast and discussed several topics including AEW and working with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Highlights are below.

OLD ECW:

“Growing up, I was admittedly a huge fan, I guess you could say mark – we’re all marks in a way – of the old ECW, and I guess that they renovated the [2300 Arena] over the years but it’s still up. You can feel the ambiance and the atmosphere inside of there, and I remember being a teenager here in Calgary and waiting and waiting because we always used to do the tape trading stuff. We’d get tapes from our video [store], or a friend, or from some random guy on the internet of all the old ECW stuff. Really huge fan, and what a great moment it was to win the tag team championships there as well. And then later in the night, me and Brian Pillman Jr., we faced Tommy Dreamer and the Sandman, too. Because, like I said, I grew up watching those guys on TV as well, and my dad had wrestled the Sandman in the old ECW: Eastern Championship Wrestling. Maybe in that same arena, too.”

The Lucha Bros: 

“[The Lucha Bros] are very talented. We had an interesting match. They like to hit hard, so I like to hit hard back, which you probably saw that in the match a couple of times. But they’re talented and I would like to get the chance to wrestle them again, because sometimes, the first time you wrestle somebody – then again, sometimes when you wrestle with somebody the first time, it clicks. But there’s other people you wrestle the first time and it’s alright. You build off of that and they learn what your style is, and you learn what they do inside the ring and you go off of that. The matches become better and better, so I hope we get the chance to do another tag team match. I thought it was better than good, I just thought that it could even be better. So, hopefully we get that chance to do that again soon.”

AEW:

“I haven’t spoken to anyone [from AEW] yet. I think that it’s awesome that they’ve created something new and different, and I hope it’s a fresh breath of air for the wrestling world. Something that’s just a different alternative, and hey, competition is always a good thing, right? For WWE and for everybody else, it keeps things interesting and it keeps things more exciting. It sounds like they have a lot of money because they can sign guys to, apparently, pretty good contracts. I haven’t been contacted by them, but if I were to be, I don’t know what the situation is with New Japan. It seems that they’re not really working with AEW, which is too bad, because guys like The Young Bucks & Kenny were featured stars in New Japan. And then when they started their own company, it seems that things have kind of split. I’d have to look in to what would be the best situation for myself. You know what? I wish them all the best. I would like to be a part of it if there’s interest, if there’s a situation that I can be in there but I don’t know if it would work with New Japan. I’m not sure.”

“I haven’t been asked about it, so I’m going to say: no. I will be in the Josh Barnett Bloodsport show on the 4 as well. He hasn’t announced it yet or announced my opponent, but we talk and it looks like I’m a go for it. But we haven’t decided who the right opponent would be. I’m looking forward to that.”

Jay White:

"It makes sense because they’ve had a lot of talent that’s left to AEW, so, I think that in their mind they’re trying to build new stars. It may also be kind of in a scramble mode where they’re like, ‘Okay, we need to make somebody right now because we’ve lost Kenny, The Young Bucks, Cody, Trent Baretta, whoever else.’ So it makes sense. I think Jay’s a pretty solid wrestler. He’s very smooth in the ring. I mean, that’s a big decision to do – to put the title on him that soon. But, I guess that they’re in that situation where they want to make somebody. I think the main thing for Jay is, he’s just got to watch out right now and not get hurt. Always that seems to be what happens is, guys, they get the big push and they’re going pedal to the metal. They’re going hard and then they get some kind of injury that sidetracks them. So, hopefully he stays healthy and I wish him all the best with it. Hopefully New Japan made the right decision and time will tell.”
