The late star, who hailed from Golborne, was due to be inducted 12 months ago, only for Covid-19 to force the event to be cancelled.

But this year’s event will honour inductees from 2020 as well as 2021, meaning Davey Boy will join the likes of Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart – his brother in law – in the legends lounge.

“My family and I have been waiting years for this,” said Georgia Smith, Davey Boy’s proud daughter.
