Former WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion Davey Boy Smith will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this April at Wrestlemania 36.  The news was first reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer. has independently confirmed the news.  The entire Hart family is slated to travel to Tampa, Florida to be in attendance for the induction.

Smith, who passed away in 2002 at the age of 39, was one half of the British Bulldogs tag team with the late Dynamite Kid in the mid and late-1980s before returning to WWF in the early 1990s as a singles star with the company's European expansion built around Bulldog.  He would later become a member of the Hart Foundation in the late 1990s before returning for one final run from 1999 to 2000.  Smith also had several runs in WCW, including a main event push teaming with Sting in the early 1990s and one during the Nitro era where he joined Bret Hart after the Montreal Screwjob. 

At his height, Smith was a hell of a performer and historically, was a massively important piece of WWE's international growth, including headlining Summerslam '92 at Wembley Stadium against Bret Hart, WWE's first-ever exclusive specials for Sky TV (including the Battle Royal at Royal Albert Hall) and headlining WWE's first UK-Only PPV against Shawn Michaels.

The news will likely be "officially broken" by WWE in some capacity in the weeks to come.
