RIP to Tom 'Dynamite Kid' Billington

Recommended Posts

Dynamite's legacy is two generations of undersized guys who packed on 40 lbs more muscle than their frames could handle, destroyed their bodies, wrestled with an intense violence that many of them struggled to turn off outside of the ring, and a broken family he terrorised. 

Good matches, bad matches from him, good matches and bad matches from those he influenced, etc... All of that has to be stacked up against that legacy.

Benoit and early pre-Liger Yamada modeled themselves after him, and both became all-time greats, but you can easily see both sides of his legacy just in those two names.
