David "Davey Boy" Smith (November 27, 1962 – 18 May 2002) better known by his ring name The British Bulldog, a British professional wrestler. Born in Golborne, Lancashire, Smith is best known for his appearances in the United States with the World Wrestling Federation.

He was trained by Ted Betley in Winwick, England before relocating to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to further his training under Stu Hart. While training with Hart, Smith met Stu and Helen Hart's youngest daughter Diana, whom he married in 1984. One of their two children, Harry, is also a professional wrestler.

Smith won titles within the WWF in three decades, from the 1980s to the 2000s. He headlined multiple pay-per-view events in the WWF and WCW, in which he challenged for the WWF and WCW world heavyweight championships, and defeated Bret Hart for the WWF Intercontinental Championship in the main event of SummerSlam 1992. He was the inaugural WWF European Champion and holds the records for longest single reign (206 days) and total days as champion (253); he also held the title on the sole occasion where a match for that championship headlined a pay-per-view event, at One Night Only in 1997. Prior to finding singles success, Smith achieved stardom as one half of The British Bulldogs tag team, alongside the Dynamite Kid.
