WWE Releases Third Generation Wrestler

WWE announced Friday that they have come to terms on the release of David Hart Smith.

Their statement reads: “WWE has come to terms on the release of David Hart Smith as of today, August 5, 2011. WWE wishes David the best in all of his future endeavors.”

The third generation wrestler’s prospects with the entertainment empire became grim following the dissolution of the Hart Dynasty late last year; his final match occurred on the April 28, 2011 episode of WWE Superstars. Even further, Smith had not competed in a match on Monday Night Raw in eight months. He last appeared on the program on December 6, 2010, which saw him lose to former tag team partner Tyson Kidd in a blow off match. He was then laid out by Kidd’s short-lived bodyguard Jackson Andrews.

His mother, Diana Smith, stated in April that David had plans to cross over to mixed martial arts.

    Granted Smith was never given much mic time while in the WWE, but when he was his personality never shown through. He was given quite a bit of spotlight around WM with Bret Hart and Vince. If he had anything to show, that would have been the time to show it. That said, he is a good in ring performer and shouldn’t have any trouble getting booked here, in Canada, or in Europe.

    No charisma? you obviously dont know what you are talking about. Just because WWE never gave him a chance, doesnt mean he lacks charisma.
    I saw Harry on the indy circuit in the UK and he has bags of charisma. I also trained with him once and the guy you saw in WWE is not who he really is. At the end one the day, WWE totally failed to use him to his full potential like they do with so many other stars.
    Up until he started doing his videos, most people would have thought Ryder lacked charisma as well seeing as he was rarely allowed to speak.

    its really bad how after his tag team run they split them up just to feud with each other and get buried like the long list of superstars that have nothing to do because creative have nothing for them. 1 quick question? if they didnt have anything for him or tyson other then being jobbers, then why split them up? tyson has been jobbing on smackdown and feuding with yoshi tatsu. David heart smith hasn’t been doing anything since april!

    This is not a shame. No charisma. No one made mention of him ever. Hopefully now we can all move forward with Tyson Kidd.

    I remember Smith’s mother said something about that. I thought he would have been released sooner.
