The son of the late British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith and nephew of Bret (The Hitman) Hart, Smith will bring his arsenal to Thrash Wrestling’s In it to win it promotion Saturday night at the Schubert Centre.

At 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, Smith is not only built like his father, he shares a similar wrestling style, one that earned him two tag-team championship belts during his days in the WWE.

Now a free agent, Smith is making several stops in Western Canada before he begins a new professional contract with Japan’s Inoki Genome Federation.

Saturday night, he will battle in a triple-threat match with TW champion The Black Dragon and former champ (Top Drawer) Michael More.

Other matchups on the card include Slave taking on the Canadian Hardcore champion Moondog Manson.

(Gorgeous) Michelle Starr is guaranteed to bring his flamboyant style as he tangles with grappler Adam Ryder. Okanagan/Interior champion KC Andrews of Penticton will put his belt on the line in against former champ, The Unholy Minion.

Careful with that Axe, a Summerland-based hard rock band, will entertain the crowd during the intermission.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and showtime is at 7. Tickets are $15 and are available Ebenezer’s in Vernon (3110-29th Ave), Bogart’s in Armstrong (3545 Okanagan Street), Leah’s Place in Enderby (908 Belvedere Ave) and The Snac Shac in Lumby (2133 Shuswap Ave).
