The WWE Hall of Famers Who Never Won the Company’s World Championship

When Davey Boy Smith made his WWF debut, he was best known as a tag team specialist along with his partner The Dynamite Kid. However, his second stint at the company appeared to have evolved into something more. He was pushed as a singles star and won the Intercontinental Championship at SummerSlam 1992 from his brother-in-law, Bret Hart. Unfortunately, any chance of building on this huge winning momentum, and the main event scene, was ascendant. He was crushed when embroiled in a growth hormone scandal with The Ultimate Warrior (via) sportster) As a result, the British Bulldog was released and headed to WCW.

In 1994, the British Bulldog returned to the WWF and soon became part of the Allied Powers along with Lex Luger. The two were not a unit for very long, however, as Smith became a heel and joined Camp Cornet, where he worked largely as a tag wrestler or active midcarder. While Smith got a shot against Shawn Michaels and nearly won the WWF Championship after both men’s shoulders were pinned to the mat in “In Your House: Beware of Dog”, he never actually won the title. That said, Smith won other championship golds in his various tenures at the company and was posthumously inducted into the 2020 Hall of Fame for his memorable run as the British Bulldog.
