– During a recent interview with Straight Talk Wrestling, former WWE talent Harry Smith (aka Davey Boy Smith Jr.) discussed his future plans and more. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Smith on his interests in grappling in MMA: “But I would like to compete again in grappling, and keep training with my MMA because it’s just making me better in the ring … I’ve got my eyes set on some NWA gold … and maybe do a mixed martial arts fight as well.”

Harry Smith on wanting to wrestle in Japan again: “I would also like to go to Japan again at some point, that’s not my main focus, but that’s where the goal is to go next. I’ve seen Pro Wrestling NOAH has been doing some really great stuff lately. I heard Kiyoshi Tamura is starting a new sort of like a shoot wrestling company called GLEAT over in Japan that Josh Barnett is going to be a part of, so I am definitely very interested in that as well.”

On a potential return to WWE: “If there’s an opportunity to go back to WWE, if there’s an actual direction for me I think that there’s still definitely some mileage and some great stuff that they can do with me there and I would like to.”

WWE released Smith from the roster last November.
