SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame: The British Bulldog memories
 One proud moment in Davey's career: SummerSlam '92 in London England. He went on to defeat Bret for the Intercontinental title, by a roll up pinfall. Therefore establishing himself in the singles competion as a major force. Considering leaving the WWF now, Davey will always be part of it with his spirit. I wish him the best in whatever it is he chooses to do. Good luck ! Take the talent you have and use it wisely, and I hope Owen soon joins all of them, to once again reunite them and rule the WCW!
 Barbara Duni
 I would have to say my greatest memory was when Davey Boy , Owen Hart and Bret Hart reunited after Bret Hart interfering in the Brittish Bull Dog vs. Owen Hart for the European title and knocking some sense into both of them.
 Randy Gibson
  My favorite memories of Davey Boy Smith is when he wrestled in Stampede Wrestling and the matches he had against the Dynamite Kid. They were both young and very quick. The rivalry they had was excellent to watch.
 Aaron Hagen
 As a Londoner and a fan of the Hart Foundation, I have many fond memories of Davey Boy Smith, 'The British Bulldog'. His career in the WWF has been a good one and he always gives 100% in the ring (WCW beware!). The best memory of Davey was when he went against Shawn Michaels, for the IC belt in 1992 and One Night Only. Though he lost those matches, I enjoyed watching Davey pound Shawn Michaels to shreds. The next favourite moment from Davey was at the 1995 Royal Rumble where he outlasted 28 other WWF superstars. Isn't it funny that the oppent to throw him over the top rope was none other than Shawn Michaels? Then there is of course his bouts against Bret Hart at Wembley Stadium and IYH5. The match at Wembley stadium was athletic, while the match at IYH was bloody and gory. Davey's match with Owen Hart in Germany, for the European Belt is another one of my favourite bouts. Though there are many matches I would still like the Bulldog to do in the WWF e.g Bulldog Vs Kane or Bulldog Vs Ahmed Johnson, his arrival to WCW would be a bonus. The reformation of the Hart Foundation would be a great asset to WCW and would see the NWO evaporate into nothingness!!!!!!
 Adrian Chin, London England.
  British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith and Shawn Michaels 1995 Royal Rumble after 28 other men and grueling battle the two people that started off the whole thing were the only ones to remain. When the bulldog threw shawn into the ropes then picked him up and threw him onto the ropes was one of my favourite wrestling moments ever then a few short moments later the Bulldog clothlines him over the ropes or so we thought replay showed that only one foot touched the ground and in another foolish WWF moment his music comes on almost telling him he had one for sure. I still think to this day if they hadn't put on that music he would have been WWf champion what a moment, what a memory.
  My favorite memory of the British Bulldog was when he defeated Bret Hart for the I-C belt. Then how Bret and Davey embrace each other after the match. My last thing would be the battles he had with Shawn Michaels. I believe the British Bulldog could have won all of the match if there was no outside interferences.
 Cornelius Watson
 Some may forget that this is Davey Boy's second stay in the WCW. My favorite memory of his first WCW stay was a Six man tag match he had at a match I went to in Savanah, Georgia. It was Sting, Ric Flair, and The British Bulldog versus Sid Vicious, Beautiful Bobby Eaton, and some tall guy named the Coyote (I think), and the match was awesome. Sting, Flair, and Davey Boy all did their signature moves and Davey Boy won the match by pinning Beautiful Bobby. I even purchased a Davey Boy Smith t-shirt after the matches; it was when he still had the long corn row hair.
 BROPH14@aol.com
  My favorite memory of the British Bulldog, was the match he had between him and Owen Hart for the European title in Wembley stadium. It was a 35-minute clinic where they both put out their best moves, but in the end, Davey Boy came out on top.
 Ron Ablang
  I'll never forget when the British Bulldogs first hit the WWF scene in 1985. They were far and away the most exciting tag team I had ever seen (sorry Road Warriors) and their matches with the Hart Foundation at the time were the most exciting ever. It was really just a prequel to the 90's, when Davey & Bret would be ruling things. I only wish that he & Dynamite could have stayed together, I think it was a team on the same level as the LOD and the Steiners. It's just furthur proof about how McMahon wastes talent. I hope the Bulldog is title bound in WCW & gets that title shot against Hogan in England. Woof!!!
 John Collins
 The best is at Stu Hart's anniversary show, Bret an Davey had a match an it was even wilder than Wembley. Man are they tough.
 bobo1@planet.eon.net
 My memories of Davey was the time of the Bret-Davey feud.It was one of the greatest match ever.
 Lee Chun Kit (ckontra@yahoo.com)
 I met Davey twice, once at Tower Records, London. and second was when he was touring the UK with a British promotion a few years back. He was at Fairfield Halls Croydon where my son had his photograph taken with him. All I can say is he is down to earth and a nice bloke to meet. Thanks Davey look forward to seeing you soon in the UK again.
 bandit@enterprise.net
 My favorite memory is the 1995 Rumble. Shawn drew 1st he came 2nd. After 28 other men were gone it was 1 and 2 left standing. Shawn was thrown over, but feet never touched. Bulldog gave it his all but came up short.
 John Sherdel
 I remember the day the Bulldogs lost the belt to the Hart Foundation in the controversial Danny Davis referee match. I was still rather young and the Bulldogs were my absolute favorite wrestlers. When the match was over and I saw that they lost, I cried my eyes out for quite some time. My mother yelled at me for crying over those "phony wrestlers" and demanded that I go out and enjoy the nice day outside.
  I can remember seeing the greatest battle between two tag teams on a Saturday Nights' Main Event some years ago. It was a 2 out of 3 falls war against the Bulldogs and the Hart Foundation for the tag team titles. The Bulldogs won two, enough to win the match, but the titles escaped their grasp because they won one of the falls by dq. I was heart broken. (no pun intended.)
 OK, so on top of the crying one, and the 2 out of 3 one, I have one more extremely memorable Bulldog moment. I was in attendance of a great steel cage match between the Bulldogs and the Harts at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh. It was the best live card I had been to. That was one great fued: Bulldogs v. Harts. They gave some great shows.
  Dave Fedor
 My best memory of the British Bulldog was when he and Owen won the tag team titles and also his match with Shawn Michaels at one night only(I think Earl Hebner got paid off by D-Generation X)
 Warren Carroll
 I was at the UK Xpress tour in 1996 at London Arena and watched Bret beat Vader, and I also remember Bret beating Ric Flair for the WWF Title in Saskatoon, and at Summerslam 91 which I have on video, where Bret beat Mr Perfect in one of the best matches I have ever seen for the Intercontinental title, but the best match I have ever seen was at Summerslam 92 Bret vs Bulldog. Since I am British and a very big fan of Bret and Bulldog I just hoped that they would get back together after the match
 Warren Carroll
 As a fellow Stampede Wrestling (SW) watcher and then a WWF watcher, I am glad that the British Bulldog and all the other SW grads are with the WCW. The only thing that would be great is to see Owen joining the rest of the clan. As a watcher from Southern Alberta I can only say, give it hell and always remeber that your second home is Calgary. Viva les Bulldog.
 D. Davidson (Vulcan, AB)
 My first memories of the Bulldog is the hype leading up to Summer Slam 92 when he took the I-C belt from Bret Hart. At the time, Bulldog was my favorite wrestler and Bret my 2nd favorite. When I saw Bulldog lose to Shawn Michaels three months later on The Main Event, I was heartbroken. But he has come back to win the Tag Team straps several times, and the first ever European Championship. I'm still waiting for the day when Davey Boy pays Michaels back for all those cheap victories (One Night Only for example)
 Gcawthon1@aol.com
  One of my favorite Bulldog moments came at the "In your House" PPV before the 96 King of the Ring. The WWF Championship match between Davey Boy Smith & Shawn Micheals was a classic. If that second referee wouldn't have shown up, the Bulldog would have been the WWF Champion. But knowing that McMahon loves Shawn Micheals so much. It was probably a set up by McMahon to keep Micheals as the WWF champ. Being that the Hitman, the Anvil joined WCW, I'm glad that Davey Boy could get away from the WWF before McMahon got a chance to screw him as well. If Owen Hart is smart, he'll jump to WCW before McMahon gets him too! Good Luck Bulldog! I hope you can become a champion in WCW soon. WCW & the Hart Foundation RULE!
  Mark Harding, captron@ptdprolog.net
  My favorite memory of the British Bulldog isn't just one match. I liked to watch Davey and other members of the Hart Foundation wrestle Stone Cold Steve Austin, Dude Love, Shawn Micheals, etc. I hope he'll get WCW up to Canada soon.
  Nuala McGarry
 My favorite memory of Davey-boy Smith was when he and the Dynamite Kid battled the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers at Summerslam '88. I believe it was the last time we got to see the Bulldogs together, but it really showed how good of a wrestler Davey is, and how great of a wrestler his tag-team partner was. It upsets me to find out that the two once-great friends fell apart and seperated, but the same thing happened with the original Hart Foundation as well. Now that I see Davey in WCW and teaming with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart...I think it's a good time for Davey to re-take up tag-team wrestling. He needs to establish a tag-team name for he and the Anvil and rule the tag-team ranks of WCW. I love Davey-boy Smith as a wrestler, and my heart goes out to Dynamite Kid.
 Brad Drake
  It's difficult to say exactly what about DaveyBoy caught my eye. In the mid-Eighties, when he and the Dynamite Kid were feuding with the Hart Foundation, I believe the WWF hit its peak in tag team wrestling. Alas, the Bulldogs were robbed of the title due to the illustrious Danny Davis affair. This marked only the beginning of DaveyBoy Smith being robbed of the titles he rightfully deserved.
  There's no greater a powerhouse than DaveyBoy, and his running powerslam has spelled doom for far too many opponents for his talent to go unnoticed. Yet Vince MacMahon saw fit to screw him over in favor of Shawn Michaels after DaveyBoy won the intercontinental belt off of Bret Hart in what I believe is truly the greatest match in WWF history.
  But MacMahon didn't stop there. One Night Only, In Your House/WrestleFest 96 and Royal Rumble 1995 all were terrible screw-overs. And to Shawn Michaels, no less. But the coup de gras was when Shawn defeated DaveyBoy for the European Championship after DaveyBoy won it in such a grueling match against Owen Hart. I only hope that Eric Bischoff rewards DaveyBoy for his incredible physical prowess and technical ability. I can honestly say that DaveyBoy Smith, The British Bulldog, is my absolute, all-time favorite wrestler.
  Dave Ranallo
 I'm a huge Bulldog fan, I'm only 13 years old but I have very fond memories of Davey, my favorite matches are when Bulldog defeated Owen in Germany, The 10-man tag match in Calgary that had the harts Vs. USA (I was there), at Wrestlemania 3 when The Bulldogs and Tito Santana wrestled The Hart Foundation and Danny Davis(I saw it on tape),At IYH 5 and SummerSlam 1992 in the two Greatest matches i've ever seen against Bret, The 1995 Royal Rumble and at One Night Only in a Great match against HBK. I have a Bulldog shirt, Figurine and Poster. I think he WAY UNDERATED!!! and Good Luck Davey!!
 Brent Griffin
 My favorite memory of Davey is when he and Dynamite teamed with the Hart Foundation and someone else (can't remember who) at one of the Survivor Series to take on Demolition, and another team (I think). It was a geat match and showed the Bulldogs style!!!!
 IRISHLORD3@aol.com
 My favourite memory of the Bulldog happens at one of the early WrestleManias (3 or 4). The British Bulldogs were wrestling a team managed by the great Bobby Heenan. The Bulldogs appeared to be in control of the match when Bobby grabbbed that ugly mutt of theirs and took off down the aisle.
 Dino Fazzari
 I remember Stampede Wrestling in the late 1970's at Victoria Pavilion in Calgary. It always retained the odour of the livestock auctions that went on there during the day but somehow that added to the experience.
  The greatest matches I saw involved Davey Boy and Dynamite. I thought at one time they were tag-team partners (bad guys) and fought against various combos of Harts and their allies. In any case they were amazing atheletes. Dynamite could be slammed upside down into the turnbuckle, land on his belly, then jump with a single movement to his feet and resume the festivities. It's too bad, although not surprising that he is now having back and other problems.
 Bruce Irwin
 I have not been watching Davey Boy for long, only since his appearance in WCW in January of this year. However, my favorite memory of him has to be his match at Superbrawl VIII in February against Steve "Mongo" McMichael. That was a short match, but Davey Boy showed Mcmichael just how badly the former Chicago Bear had underestimetd him, breaking his arm in the process. Go Bulldog!!
 Lissa Karcz
 I remember driving back from some Canadain center with Davey AND Bret and I saw some graet match in Alberta, Canada between Dave & Tom (that`s Dynamite Kid). There were some good memories.
 Steven Wall
  As a child obsessed with wrestling I can recall times when Davey Boy Smith simply blew my mind. I remember WrestleMania III, the six man tag with the Bulldogs facing The Hart Foundation and the infamous Danny Davis. The pummeling Smith gave Davis-powerslam after powerslam- was not only brutal but hilarious to watch. Who can forget the next year--WrestleMania IV, another six man tag with the Bulldogs and Koko B. Ware facing The Islanders and Bobby Heenan, who had previously stolen the Bulldogs' mascot, Matilda. Who can forget the crazy outfit Heenan wore during that match-all padded up in fear of an attack from Matilda, the bulldog. Well, although Heenan won the match by pinning Koko, his fears came alive after the bout, when Smith, Koko, and Dynamite Kid sicked Heenan in the aisle, ripping up his uniform and humiliating him in front of 20,000 fans at Trump Plaza. Thats how I remember theold British Bulldogs, they always seemed to have luck go against them, but found funny and vicious ways to avenge their losses! Let's hope Smith has a chance to shine in the WCW.
  Greg Calbi
  I have always been a huge fan of Davey Boy and the Hart family. I admire they're excellent wrestling skills, and the way they have achieved some much. Out of all of the Harts, Davey Boy is my favorite. I love his technical ability as well as everything else he does ;) I wish him,along with all the rest of the Harts much luck in the future.
  can.
  My favorite memories of the Bulldog Davey boy smith are of the WWF days in tag team action with dynamite kid. The dynamite kids' flying headbutt was great and not many could match Davey boys power. Also the times when Matilda would hit the ring and try to take a bite of Jimmy Harts @ss were classic. It seems as if no one who has posted on this site remembers Matilda, what gives?????????
  E-D-Neefe@worldnet.att.net
  My favorite memory was my favorite wrestler the Bulldog going to WCW as he deserves it.
  DMNSMORA@aol.com
 David is I think the best wrestler in WWF history. He beat almost anyone he faced!
 I hope to see you in the WWF in a couple of months
 michaelj.bennett@nf.sympatico.ca
  I remember the time I went to a WCW house show,in which he faced Brian Adams.Adams hit a jumping piledriver,and it seemed that Bulldog soiled his pants.He left WCW shortly afterward.
  Hoganguy@aol.com
 My favorite memory of Davy Boy was at Summerslam 92 when he totalled Bret Hart.
 DMNSMORA@aol.com
  What can I say? Two words for you. British Bulldogs. My second favorite team. I am now thinking of Survivor Series 87, when they teamed up with the Strike Force, the Young Stallions, The Rougeau Brothers, and the Killer Bees (I am still shocked that Brunzell is older than Hogan, I personally didn't think that was possible.) Anyways, Davey is a great wrestler, and a great team fighter too, always has been. WM2, Bulldogs winning the tag team titles was my fondest memory of the Bulldogs. For the records, the beat the origional Dream Team of Brutus Beefcake, and Greg Valentine.
  Derek M. Ellis
  In the 80s, the Bulldogs were coming to Montreal, Quebec every month with the WWF. My friends and I found out which hotel the wrestlers stayed at so we went and got to meet the Bulldogs with Mathilda (their Bulldog mascot). We offered to walk her and they surprisingly allowed us given our prepubescent ages. We were just about to return this big dog when she sat down and refused to budge. We were panicking. I volunteered to knock on the door of the Bulldogs' room and they both came out although they had seperate rooms. Dynamite was topless and Davey in a World Gym T-shirt. Given Davey had more clothes on, he came down and swiftly scooped up Mathilda under his arm much to our awe. We returned up to the rooms and to show their appreciation, we all received photos with both Bulldogs inside their hotel rooms with their ring uniforms and Dynamite still topless. What a great memory for any fan!
  Harris Black
  Best match DAVEY "BOY" SMITH VS BRET in a chain match APRIL/MAY'87. when they came back to wrestle in STAMPEDE FOR 2 WEEKS
  Jolene Fendelet
  Davey Boy totally rocks! I love him so much and even though wrestling today has so many rising stars and so many "new and daring" angles, I still know he's the best and the best feuds ever in wrestling "Bulldog VS Hitman" and "Bulldog VS HBK" feuds that took place over the years in the WWF. I wish him a safe recovery from his injury and also much luck in the future. PS: Take as long as you need for the injury to heal..I wanna see you in Grade A condition when you go back out to wrestle and I want you to be able to do what you do best...kicking butt!!!
  ~~C~~
 I was extremely saddened to hear that the Bulldog was forced to retire, and even more so by the fact that he may never even walk again. Davey was an example to everyone of what a wrestler should be: he was in phenomenal condition, a master of mat mechanics , a great sportsman and an incomparable entertainer. he had it all. Among the best matches of his that I ever saw were: Bulldog vs HBK (King of the Ring '96) , Bulldog vs Bret (Summerslam '92) and Bulldog vs Owen (Euro. title tournament finals in Berlin)
 I will certainly miss seeing him in action.
 Wrestling loses yet another great star.
 Rohith Lasrado
 Davey Boy Smith has been my all time favorite wrestler. He's made it through everything throughout the years, and has always managed to pick himself up..If he were to get knocked down, he always got up again. He was and still is the best wrestler to ever step into a ring.I am saddened by the recent condition he is in, however even though it seems as if there is no hope left for Bulldog, I continue to remain optimistic..And the more and more I do, it becomes a reality. Davey Boy Smith will overcome this, and when he does, he will go back to the ring, and continue to fight! Since nobody can beat the Bulldog.
 Candi0316@aol.com
 I think that Davey Boy has had a magnificant career,but only if the WWF respected him and let him win some more matches, he could even go further. My favourite moment was when Owen and Bulldog won the tag team championships.Just hope he returns to wrestling.
 Barbara Laird
 I think the Bulldog is the best wrestler to ever hit the ring. He has shown that he can wresle one on one and is probably the best tag partner in the sport, which he has proven i.e. Bulldog + Bret, Bulldog + Dynamite Kid, and of coarse the best tag team ever Bulldog + Owen. Bulldog please come back to the WWF it need's ya. Sorry about Owen. GET WELL SOON!
 Louie Lou(nickname)Alberta
 It is without a doubt that the British Bulldog has been the best wrestler not to win the WWF title or even WCW title EVER, in fact the Bulldog has been the best tag team wrestler and singles wrestler I have ever seen (Texas Tornado a VERY close second). The BEST memory of the Bulldog I have is when he beat the sh_it out of Ken Shamrock and then covered him with dogfood just before SummerSlam 1997.
 brianmurphy@oceanfree.net
 I have so many beautiful, fond memories of Davey Boy. Some of them are old, some newer. Some are inside the ring, some are outside. My most recent memory isn't really a memory at all, but a long term fight. Davey Boy was injured, and struck with an illness in past months. He was said to be down and and out. Newspapers said he was through. 21 years down the drain. Goodbye Bulldog. But not Me. Even when it seemed the worst of times for Davey, I knew that he was going to make it. Since I was a very little girl, I had loved, and supported the Bulldog. Practically since the age of 3. While sometimes, I was hit with the sadness that he may not get better, or that he would be in pain forever, I always knew he'd get better. I prayed for Davey every night. And when things would look grim, I just thought of other battles He'd fought...and came out on top..: his car terrible accident in 1989, his knee injuries, staph infections, and other tragedies..Like his trial a few years ago. He always made it through the toughest of times. However, this one seemed different. This one seemed like the ultimate end. I read about his personal tragedies, while looking at pictures of his two young kids. It was very harsh this time. I always figured that He had children, but only when I had seen them, did I realize how greatly this must have effected them. I hoped Davey would be ok...especially for his children's sake..His 13 year old son, and his 11 year old daughter. I read that he wished to tag team with his son when he got better...Whenever that would be. Someday.
  Now, I smile, and know that I was right. Davey Boy is better..He's really getting there. I seen the picture of him and his son in the gym. My hands were literally shaking as I looked at it, and I was almost moved to tears. How beautiful it was to see them really together. Not just a thought, but the beginning of something great. I have strong feelings about this boy. I feel that someday, Harry will reach the status that his Dad has. I think He's gonna be something special. That boy's gonna make it. I can feel it in my heart. I've seen the look in his eyes before. Intense. Dark. Determined. Just like Davey Boy. I do believe that someday they'll be together. I know it will happen. And when it does..It'll be a day I'll never forget.
 Rachel
 My fondest memory of Davey was Summerslam 95 at the Continental airlines arena. Davey gave all his best against Ken Shamrock for the europenan title. That was one of the best mtaches I had ever seen! Another one is "One Night only against Shawn Michaels. Too bad he lost that match due to interference!
 Jeanine Panzone, South Orange, NJ
 My favourite moment of Davey Boy Smith was when he and his Bulldog partner lost the Tag Team belts to The Hart Foundation after he gave a brave solo display of sheer power and skill,after of course the Foundation shamelessly bribed Danny Davis and knocked his partner out before the match had begun.
 Nomen Nescio
 I have always been a huge fan of Davey Boy. I have entered memories in this section before, But now I just want to take the time to once again say how proud I am of Davey and how much I love him and his spirit. He is so incredible, so awesome, so amazing. He has acheived so much in his life, and has made it through more than any one person can imagine. I have created a Fanpage tribute about Davey Boy and his son, Harry. Please visit the site at: http://daveyboyandharry.homestead.com/
 Hopefully some day he will see it and realize how much he is loved and appreciated for all he has given. I love you Davey!!
 Candi0316@aol.com
 THE BRITISH BULLDOG (Davey Boy Smith) is my favourite wrestler of all time. I would love it if you could send me info and pictures and stuff on him. Thanks.
 girvine2@westlothian.org.uk
 My favourite Bulldog memory was at WWF Rebellion in October 99. He kicked X Pac's a$$ and then caused Stephanie McMahon to get "amnesia". Later that night he cost Rock the championship and got a beating for it. Vince McMahon should have given Bulldog the heavyweight title while he could, because Bulldog is the strongest and probably the best wrestler the WWF had.
 GOOD LUCK BULLDOG
 The British Bulldog is so cool I loved his old music
 He is the best because he is the first ever European Champion
 He has a Heart and Cares about his Family
 NYJG82@aol.com
  Davey Boy Smith has been my favourite wrestler for five years and my favourite British Bulldog moment was at In Your House 10 when he and the late, great Owen Hart beat the Smoking Gunns for the WWF tag titles.
  James Macveigh
 My favourite Davey Boy Smith moment has to be the classic match between him and Bret Hart at Summerslam 92. It was an amazing performance. Bulldog has always been my favourite wrestler and it was a shame the WWF and Vince McMahon loves Shawn Micheals so much because realistically Shawn couldn't beat the Bulldog on his own and always needed help. After such an amazing performance at Summerslam the Bulldog deserved to keep the IC title longer than a few months.
 charliejohnso24@hotmail.com
 I'll always remember Davey Boy Smith as a British Bulldog with The Dynamite Kid. Davey Boy is a guy who knows how to get down & dirty when he has to.
 Dave Cox.
 My favourite Bulldog moment was when he returned on Smackdown! last year and won the Hardcore title, Bulldog is that damn good!
 vivas88@hotmail.com
  My favourite Bulldog moment was when he caused a riot at Rebelion 1999. He threw a bin at Stephenie Mcmahon, causing her to lose her memory. He jumped Chyna when she was about to beat Jeff Jarrett, causing her to be put in the figure four leg lock. He beat X-Pac by picking him up and dropping him onto the ropes followed by the"Running Powerslam". Then he ended the night by screwing The Rock out of his title, in a cage match against Triple H, by throwing him back over the cage when he'd nearly climbed out. He also gave Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson and Shane McMahon a beating. Despite that he didn't get the title shot he wanted. Sadly the British fans didn't back him very well. But never the less he made Rebellion an event that will go down in history, due to his behaviour. Only the best wrestlers can do that.
  john boddy
 I have watched Davey ever since he started in Stampede, he is one of the most amazing wrestlers I have ever watched. He is going thought a lot right now but I hope he will be back in the ring soon. There are so many matches of his I have seen. I realy don't have a favorite. I hope to see him back in the ring soon.
 joanyeske@3web.net
 Davey Boy Smith was not only one of the greats of our time but he was PURE BRITISH, he make us British proud of him and made us look up to someone, as you don't get many British or Irish wrestlers out there in WWF AND WCW. He is the one who got us watching wrestlers all over again. I used to look forward every week, for when he comes on for a great match to watch like the SummerSlam at Wembley' 92, against Bret Hart and the Royal Rumble in 1995, against Shawn Michaels. I used to love for when the British Bulldog would come on and holding the Union Jack behind him. It was heartbreaking when the British bulldog lost his last Title belt 'The European belt' back in the 1999 and than I never saw him again. We need him back and this time, he should up for the WWF Champions title. I like and love other wrestlers like Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock etc. But none of them can bet my hero, the one and only, The British Bulldog.
