Harry Smith returns to WWE
The Money In the Bank go-home edition of SmackDown from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas had a couple of pre-show dark matches scheduled which saw Harry Smith and WWE NXT Superstars in action.
Smith teamed up with NXT star Austin Theory to take on the team of Odyssey Jones and Xyon Quinn. The show also saw another singles match that featured Aliyah and Xia Li. The tag team bout was won by Smith and Theory, while the singles match was won by Li.
Smith then had a backstage interview where he spoke with Megan Morant following the match. Harry Smith opened up on his absence from WWE for a decade. He said that he worked on himself and developed to be a better wrestler.
He worked around the world, and believes now he is ready to be back. Morant asked Smith what it felt like being the first star to come through the curtain.
He said: “You know, it’s great to be back in the WWE, especially in front of the WWE Universe, live here in Houston, Texas. The atmosphere, the ambience, the energy that you can feel from a live WWE audience, nothing can touch that and that’s why Harry Smith is back in the WWE. “
He added: “The past 10 years I’ve been going around the globe, making myself the best competitor that I can be, all over in Japan, all over in Europe, and that’s why I’m back in the WWE, to show exactly how much Harry Smith has grown over this past time.”
