Haven't seen this topic discussed on here, but PWInsider (among others), as well as a couple of interviews with the man himself, have stated that Harry Smith, son of the late Davey Boy Smith, will be debuting with the company sometime this summer.
The report that I read stated that he would be bypassing the developmental territories and heading straight for one of the main rosters.
For those of you that have seen his work, is he a power guy like his dad or does he have the technical prowess of his uncles? I'm just curious as to what to expect from the guy. He definitely has the lineage to be a star, but could he be overhyped?
I havent seen him yet either, but I have to assume he's gotta have something pretty good about himself to make The E bypass OVW & DSW and send him straight to the pros, unless they're planning on getting him over soley by pushing the fact that he's DaveyBoy's son, in which case I dont like his chances.
I just hope he doesn't have an attitude like Teddy Hart.
In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
The last time I saw Harry, which was about 4 years ago, he was very green and pretty gangly. The photos of him I've seen lately show he's filled out quite a bit and is a lot more mature in the ring. He's nothing like Teddy Hart. Harry wants to learn and also wants to avoid the same mistakes his dad made. I hope he makes it and that the WWE can use him. I can see him making a big splash in the cruiser division, if he's still in that weight range.
Whatcha gonna do when Mahkan-mania runs wild all over you?
Originally posted by Iago Well according to the Wiki stub of him, he's 6'6 and 255. I dunno if they work those or not on Wiki. Even if he is closer to 6'2 or 6'3 and 220-230 he'd be a bit bigger than the average cruiserweight.
In hindsight, it didn't matter anyway due to his medical problems. The Roode push gives me a reason to watch the show again, that is a step in the right direction. I can't really say that about Raw after Punk was white hot only a month ago.
