Sad ending for Bulldog

By TIM BAINES -- Sun Media

 The wrestling world was saddened by the death of The British Bulldog, Davey Boy Smith, last Saturday.

 While the cause of death isn't yet known, doctors say steroid abuse likely played a major role.

 Smith, both with partner Tom (Dynamite Kid) Billington and as a singles wrestler, was a superstar in the WWF. Davey Boy had been turning his life around recently, trying to become part of the first father-son tag team champions with his teenage son, Harry.

  • On the heels of his loss to The Undertaker at last Sunday's Judgment Day pay-per-view, Hulk Hogan was said to be ready to quit. On Smackdown! Hogan told the fans his dying father told him to quit and spend more time with his family. Before Hogan could make his announcement, Smackdown! boss Vince McMahon warned the Hulkster not to quit, or he would be sued for every penny he has. So Hogan told McMahon he had no intention of quitting, punctuating his point with a punch in the mouth.

  • The Undertaker's reign as the new WWE champion lasted one night, sort of. He lost a match to Rob Van Dam on RAW, but crotchety owner Ric Flair stormed into the ring and nullified the win, correctly noting The 'Taker's foot was on the ropes. Short memory, eh Nature Boy?

  • There are some interesting possibilities for the next pay-per-view. The Undertaker could face Hogan again, or maybe it's Triple H's turn to step up to the plate.

  • Other Judgment Day results: Kurt Angle was forced to shave his head after a loss to Edge; Stone Cold Steve Austin beat Flair and The Big Show in a handicap match; Triple H beat Chris Jericho in a Hell in a Cell match; Rikishi and his partner Rico (chosen by Vince McMahon) shocked Billy and Chuck to win the tag titles; Eddie Guerrero beat Van Dam; Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman beat The Hardy Boyz; and Trish beat Stacy Keibler.

  • Two new WWE shows began on TNN last night. Velocity, from 10-11 p.m., was hosted by Michael Cole and Al Snow and featured Smackdown! brand wrestlers. Mean Gene Okerlund then hosted WWE Confidential from 11 p.m. to midnight.

  • X-Pac (Sean Waltman) and Kevin Nash didn't like the tone of RAW's plotline and they complained. The script was changed so the nWo looks to be on the fast track to success again. Booker T was anointed a full-fledged member with the blessing of nWo leader Nash.

  • Tommy Dreamer really should see someone about his diet. He consumed hair shavings and gel on RAW.

  • Poor Joanie Laurer. Formerly Chyna, she lost to Joey Buttafuoco on Celebrity Boxing. Let it be known we're big Chyna fans in this corner and we demand a rematch.

  • The Canadian Wrestling Alliance will have a show, Shock at the Rock! today at 4 p.m. at The Rock Niteclub in Brampton. The main event is a hardcore, Brampton Street Fight, with CWA eXtreme champion Bloody Bill Skullion facing Notorious T.I.D. Tickets are available at Jack's Back Yard, 30A Kennedy Rd. S.

  • Fighting Spirit Pro Wrestling (FSPW) is having a show, Double Jeopardy, on May 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Polish Hall, 5681 Thorold Stone Rd., in Niagara Falls. Among those appearing will be Showtime Eric Young, Dangerboy X Derek Wylde, The Hacker, The Original Sinn, Completely Cody Steele, Los Jalapeno, Bodycount and Silver Rush.

  • Results from last Sunday's Apocalypse Wrestling Federation show in Ajax: Codfather Billy Flynn pinned Vladimir Urkov; Mayhem upended Jerrick (The Thriller) Miller; Slade beat Kevin Grace; Silk beat Arizona; Asylum gored Danny Dynamic; Jaguar Vijay Singh beat Tony Mack; Sparkling James Champagne upset Joey Knight and Phoenix won the AWF Rumble. The AWF returns to the Birchmount, 462 Birchmount Rd., on June 2 at 4 p.m.
