In a recent interview with Alistair McGeorge of Metro, independent wrestler Davey Boy Smith Jr confirmed that he has held talks with WWE about potentially joining the company.

“There’s been quite a bit of interest and a little bit of back and forth talk with myself and the company. I think that the plan, or what they were hoping, was for me to come to NXT UK, but unfortunately right now, because of COVID, those doors are kind of locked, so we’ll see.

There has been interest in me going to NXT down here in Orlando, I live down here in Tampa, Florida so I’ve just been feeling things out, trying to get a lay of the land, so to speak. We’re discussing and talking, I can’t exactly say anything for sure, but there have been talks. There’s other places, but with my father’s Hall of Fame induction, maybe that’s a good idea to go back to WWE, whichever brand or roster it is.

It’s just not any decision to make, I know Natalya is on SmackDown, I could very well go there. NXT down here is certainly a good place to get re-established, there’s a hell of a lot of talent down there like Karrion Kross, Timothy Thatcher, Finn Balor who I’ve wrestled in New Japan Pro Wrestling before. We’re just going to have to wait and see what’s the best choice.”
