Wrestling legend, Dynamite Kid dies on his 60th birthday

Wrestling legend, Tommy Billington, popular known as Dynamite Kid, is dead. The wrestler who was one half of the British Bulldogs, along with his cousin Davey Boy Smith, died on his 60th birthday last week.

Very popular in the 80’s, Dynamite Kid’s 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 before resigning following a dispute over complimentary plane tickets.

Dynamite Kid spent the last few decades of his life battling health issues and moving around with the aid of a wheelchair.
