Georgia Smith, the daughter of the late “British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith recently talked to Last Word on Sports after she attended a recent WWE Smackdown taping event.
Smith talked about her legendary family and it’s reputation, if she wanted to work in wrestling, her father’s hall of fame status, and more. You can read a few excerpts below:
Georgia Smith On Being Davey Boy Smith’s Daughter:
Well, I always remember my dad as just being my dad, his wrestling character will always be second to that. But, him as the man he was, and him as the wrestler, I deeply miss him everyday. I carry and hold a lot of pride, honour, and respect because of my dad’s, and my family’s legacy, accomplishments, and impact they made in professional wrestling.
Did she ever want to get into wrestling?
I’ve never had any interest whatsoever in being a diva or wrestler at all. If I were to ever make the transition, it would be like what Renee Young does with her doing interviews and WWE specials. I did go to college for TV, radio, and broadcasting. I also did internships at TV shows, and radio, so I do have background and experience being involved with TV/media. I don’t think my dad would’ve been too pleased if I went down the wrestling route, especially with him and my family knowing what my dreams and goals are in life, and they don’t involve wrestling. I also have seen a lot of negatives in wrestling in general, that have given me a bad taste. For that reason I have no interest in going down the diva or wrestling route, despite being brought up with it. I saw how much my dad gave for wrestling, and how he literally broke his back for the business, I can’t say I could ever do that for wrestling.
What would it mean to see her father inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?
I think they owe it to Harry, myself, my mom, along with my dad’s family in England. I think for everything my dad did for WWE, and the big of star he was, I think it’s been long overdue. But again, WWE do things the way they want and when they want.
