David Hart SmithBio

With a father like the "British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith, David Hart Smith had a wrestling lineage second to none.

As a youngster, Smith was in the unique position of being related to the men he idolized. He played at the feet of legends like Bret Hart, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and Stu Hart and eventually grew into an athlete himself.

Standing 6’5” with power to spare, David Hart Smith quickly lived up to his legacy when he became a WWE Superstar in 2007.

Watching the powerhouse was sometimes like watching a Bulldog highlight reel. He shared his dad's unique blend of strength and agility. And he brought the kind of grit, determination and dedication to excellence that is a Hart family hallmark. He also used his father's famed running powerslam to finish off opponents.

Eventually forming a triumvirate with childhood friend Tyson Kidd and cousin Natalya, Smith captured the Unified Tag Team Championships in 2010. In that moment, he became a part of the same legacy where The Hart Foundation and The British Bulldogs are forever cemented.
