Davey Boy Smith Jr. is moving on to a new chapter in his wrestling career.

Following last night’s episode of MLW Fusion, Court Bauer participated in a media call to discuss the show and a variety of topics. During the call, Bauer confirmed Smith’s current run with the league had come to an end after failing to advance in the 2020 Opera Cup tournament.

“Davey Boy’s exit in the opening round of the Opera Cup marks the end of this chapter for DBS in MLW. I have immense gratitude for (Davey) and his contributions inside the MLW ring over the past 2 ½ years. The MLW system was a great fit for him. Winning the 2019 Opera Cup as well as his run as a World Tag Team Champions. A real certified beast. Davey Boy Smith Jr. is the real deal and I wish him luck with whatever comes next.

With Davey’s spot on the roster opening up, there will be a familiar face arriving soon to fill it. I’m a little surprised it hasn’t leaked yet. This one is a big surprise.”

Smith had been actively looking for his release from MLW, but always planned to fulfill his contractual obligations to the promotion, including appearing at MLW’s “Restart” TV tapings.
