20 Legends Who Never Won a World Title

British Bulldog

Davey Boy Smith was more than just a British expat who achieved transatlantic ring success. The promising competitor from the United Kingdom honed his unparalleled strength and grappling skills in “The Dungeon” under the tutelage of WWE Hall of Famer Stu Hart, en route to becoming one-half of the talented tag team known as The British Bulldogs.

Then Smith took his career to the next level by going it alone in singles competition. Adopting the moniker from his tag team past, The British Bulldog went on to win the Intercontinental Championship before 80,355 countrymen in London’s Wembley Stadium, in the SummerSlam 1992 main event against his brother-in-law, Bret “Hit Man” Hart. He later became the first European Champion in WWE history, but never translated his success into a World Title win.
