NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool 2 takes place this weekend and ahead of the show Triple H has been able to talk about one of the things that has been on the minds of United Kingdom wrestling fans for a number of years as part of a recent conference call.
The last time WWE presented a big four pay-per-view in the United Kingdom was back in 1992 when SummerSlam took place at Wembley Stadium in London. The two men in the main event that night were Bret Hart and The British Bulldog, and it was the latter who walked out with the WWF Intercontinental Championship.
The British Bulldog has since passed away after a number of struggles in his personal life and even though many stars from that era, including his opponent that day, have been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, Bulldog has been overlooked.
There are a few campaigns at present that are pushing for him to be given his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame this year and ahead of NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool 2, it appears that WWE COO Triple H has given his backing to the WWE legend.
Triple H was asked if he thought Bulldog deserved to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, and The Game got straight to the point with his response.
“One hundred percent deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.”
The question now is whether or not WWE Chairman Vince McMahon shares these sentiments since it’s down to the main boss when it comes to Hall of Fame inductions. Davey Boy Smith was part of one of the most successful spells in wrestling and is one of the most famous British Wrestlers in history. So if WWE is hoping to keep the British public on side and continue to push towards a WrestleMania in London in the near future, it would be wise to give credit where it’s due.
