DYNAMITE KID PASSES
Posted: 011619

Former "British Bulldog" Passes Away After a Long Illness

Tom Billington, known in professional wrestling as the Dynamite Kid, has passed away at 60 years old. The cause of Billington's death has not been revealed but he had been confined to a wheelchair since 1997. He had a long history of both health and personal problems. Billington was and is considered one of the most influential in-ring wrestlers of all time. He changed the way fans looked at the junior heavyweights. Dynamite Kid was an early user of steroids and did moves that were considered insane like head butts onto concrete floors. All contributed to his being in a wheelchair. He was a part of the British Bulldogs tag team with Davey Boy Smith. The team broke up at Billington’s request, who had a reputation of being a jerk. His biography Pure Dynamite is one of the greatest wrestling biographies of all time. It is brutally honest about his life and his career.
