Diana Hart Talks On Montreal Screwjob, Bulldog/WWE & More



Former wife of “British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith and mother of former WWE superstar David Hart Smith, Diana Hart Smith, recently appeared on Inside the Ropes radio. Here are some highlights:

Feelings on the Screwjob?: “I was in Vancouver and managed to get home to see it. I would never have fathomed they would have done this to Bret. My Dad thought it was part of the storyline. We thought it was part of something that started back in England at One Night Only. Owen was disgusted and a lot of guys wanted to quit.”

Did she support Bulldog getting out of his WWF contract after Montreal?: “I didn’t want him to do it. I wanted him to stay. It cost Davey $100,00 to get out of it. I didn’t want him to do it. I felt terrible for what happened to Bret but I didn’t want Davey to lose the money. The funny thing is the same day Davey paid the $100,000, They gave Owen a $100,000 bonus for re-signing and staying with the company.”

Did she ever hold WWF accountable for Owen’s death in 1999?: “I always believe it was an accident. I never thought it was anything more than an accident.”

Do you think it was soon for Bulldog to come back in 1999?: “It was Davey’s call but in hindsight, i think he should have waited. He was anxious to show everyone….. He wanted to show WCW, ‘Look what you let go?’ and it was almost a kind of a ‘Take a look at me now.’”
