WWE Legend, Dynamite Kid Dies Of Injuries by 19Ebisco: 11:13pm On Dec 05
British World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE legend, Tommy Billington, widely known as Dynamite Kid, is dead.

Dynamite kid who became a huge hit with fans in the 1980s, died on his 60th birthday on Wednesday.

The wrestler from Golborne, Lancashire, made his name with Stampede Wrestling in Canada, and also worked in Japan.

He was one half of the British Bulldogs, along with his cousin Davey Boy Smith.

But the World Wresting Entertainment (WWE) star had battled various health problems in his later years and had spent the last few decades in a wheelchair following a series of injuries.

His trainer Marty Jones tweeted on Wednesday, “It’s with great sadness I have to inform you all that The ‘Dynamite Kid’ Tom Billington on his birthday has passed away.

“A true British ambassador for wrestling worldwide. RIP ‘Kid’. Condolences to Mark and his family.”

Smith’s son Davey Boy Smith Junior also said on Twitter this morning: “It deeply saddens me to announce the passing of Tom Billington, the ‘Dynamite Kid’.”

“I was really happy and glad I got to see Dynamite one last time last June in the UK.”

Dynamite Kid had spent the last few decades in a wheelchair following a series of injuries‏.

His career nearly ended in agony when he broke his back in the ring in 1986 at Madison Square Garden in New York and was told he would never wrestle again.

But he fought back to wrestle with WWF for another five years and was hailed as a legend – before resigning following a dispute over complimentary plane tickets.

He carried on wrestling in Canada and Japan until 1991, but took part in his final match in October 1996. One year later he lost the use of his left leg.

Billington was told he would never walk again, and then suffered a series of heart problems – before having a stroke in November 2013. He died Wednesday morning.

RIP strong man.
Very few people here will remember him.
He was before and around the time of Ultimate warrior and Hulk Hogan.

The British Bulldogs!

RIP Man. I don't even understand how a sane man would just decide to take fighting as a profession. Not even a kind of fight with rules and discipline like boxing and judo...well..go fight on with Dem wrestlers in Heaven perhaps god might allow you join Angel Michael

Yes they do have village people, however, most times we are our own self village people due to poor judgement and avoidable mistakes.

The other half was obviously more popular than him. I only remember the other guy as the British bulldog of the late eighties and nineties..just like Shawn Michael's overshadowed the other guy in their duo (the rockers).. .
