Bulldog denies threats
By NOVA PIERSON, Calgary Sun
Wrestling star Davey Boy Smith is "adamant" about his innocence against allegations he threatened to kill his estranged wife.
Smith's lawyer Jim Lutz appeared in provincial court yesterday to enter a not guilty plea for his client and set a trial date.
Smith, who is estranged from wife Diana Hart-Smith of the Calgary wrestling clan, has been charged with four counts of uttering threats, as well as charges of failing to appear and failing to comply with court conditions.
Police allege the 38-year-old wrestler known as the British Bulldog threatened to kill both Diana and her sister Elizabeth Niedhart.
"He is adamant it has nothing to do with him being guilty, but has to do with other matters," said Lutz, hinting at the marital strife the couple is going through.
A divorce has been filed in Court of Queen's Bench.
Smith was arrested in late October and spent a weekend behind bars before being released.
