"The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith

It was 17 years ago today when “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith passed away at the age of 39. Smith had two children, Harry and Georgia, and they’re remembering him today.

Harry, who wrestles under the name Davey Boy Smith Jr. for New Japan Pro-Wrestling, posted this message on Twitter remembering his father:

Likewise, Georgia tweeted the following:

Smith died after suffering a heart attack while on vacation in Invermere, British Columbia, Canada with his girlfriend Andrea Redding, who was Bruce Hart’s estranged wife. An autopsy revealed that past anabolic steroid use may have played a part in his death, but no certain reason was found. Bruce Hart claimed, “Davey paid the price with steroid cocktails and human growth hormones.” Two funeral services were held, one by Andrea and the other by the Hart family.
