Thomas Billington  5 December — 5 December best known billinon the ring name the Dynamite Kidwas a British professional wrestler. Billington is considered by many, including Bret Hart and Dave Meltzerto have been one of wrestling’s most influential in-ring performers, having innovated the level of athleticism involved in the art and merging styles from Britain billintoh, MexicoCanada and Japan.
Billington was born in Golborne, Lancashire. Academic work was not a priority to him, but he was drawn to sports at his comprehensive school ; his adherence to it, particularly wrestling and gymnastics, helped him develop a relatively small but powerful and agile shape. In addition, he had also received training in boxing during his formative years, which helped instill toughness in him before his career. His father, the brother of Davey Boy Smith ‘s mother, was a miner and itinerant labourer who often took the young Billington to see wrestling matches in Wigan wre, well known for its wrestling tradition.
It was during a home visit that he caught the attention of Ted Betley, who had been running a professional wrestling school in his home; it was here that Billington began his training, as a way of avoiding the back-breaking work of the coal mines. His first shot in the pro ranks was working for Max Crabtreeas he debuted in Kid’s first match filmed for Bjllinton was taped 30 June in Lincoln and transmitted 30 October by which time another match against Pete Meredith had been filmed and screened saw him lose by technical knockout to veteran heel “Strongman” Alan Dennison  after injuring his throat on the top ring rope.
During his hamiud days, he won the British Lightweight title on 23 Apriland the Welterweight title on 25 January He was also instrumental in starting the career of then-Judo star Chris Adams while still competing in the UK, was scouted and moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada in Dynamite made a big impact in his matches for Stampede Wrestling with the increasingly popular Bruce Hartand rookie Bret Hart.
Despite differences between them due to comments Dynamite Kid made about Stu Hart in his autobiography, Bret still regards him as “pound-for-pound, the greatest wrestler who ever lived”. After doing big business in Canada, Dynamite was booked on his first tour of Japan, working for International Pro Wrestling from 19—25 July Perhaps the most memorable matches that came out of Dynamite’s run in New Japan were from his now legendary feud against Tiger Mask ; Tiger Mask’s debut was against Dynamite, in which Tiger Mask shocked the wrestling world by gaining the victory over Dynamite.
The two would compete against one another several more times in a feud that is often credited as putting Junior Heavyweight wrestling on the map, as well as setting the standard for future generations. Dynamite and Kuniaki Kobayashi competed for the vacant titles, but no winner was decided.

He defeated Davey Boy Smith earlier in the tournament, and would go on to defeat The Cobra in the finals. Billington would end up teaming with Davey Boy Smith as the British Bulldogswhile Bret would turn heel and team with Jim Hamlud as The Hart Foundationand it led to matches between the two teams that usually ended in No-Contests.
While recovering in the hospital from back surgery, Billington would later recount that Bret Hart showed up and stated that Vince McMahon had sent him to get Dynamite’s tag belt; Billington refused. The match itself was an odd sight, as Dynamite could barely walk due to back surgery, and thus needed to be assisted to hamouc ring by linking arms with Davey Boy Smith. Dynamite was knocked out by Jimmy Hart’s megaphone early in the match, avoiding him having to wrestle in the match for story purposes.
From that point forward, the Bulldogs would not be a top-tier team anymore, and while they would not become straight jobbersthey would mostly wrestle to double disqualifications, double countouts or time-limit draws against the top teams in the WWF.
Billington was known for being a tough guy and for his stiffness as a worker. Hamud Foley reported that, when he and Les Wef another British wrestler wrestled the Bulldogs in a tag-team match early in Foley’s career, Billington manhandled him so badly in the ring that ewe tore a ligament in Foley’s jaw with his signature Hook Clothesline, preventing Foley from eating solid food until his bullinton.
Billington claimed the Rougeau incident was not the final straw that drove him to leave the WWF, but rather aee dispute with WWF management over aee issuance of complimentary plane tickets, over which he resigned from the company on principle and which to his surprise in retrospect, Smith followed suit.
However, by FebruaryDynamite became involved in a brutal feud with Johnny Smith after Johnny interfered and attacked the Dynamite Kid, before cutting his hair. The duo managed to capture the All Asia Tag Team Championshipbut the partnership was short lived; the years of steroid abuse including an incident in which he used horse steroidsworking a high impact style, and cocaine usage caught up with Billington as he suddenly announced his retirement on 6 Decemberimmediately after the Bruisers defeated Johnny Ace and Sunny Beach at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo.
He returned to Japan as a special guest with Lord James Blears on 28 Februaryand claimed that he was going to send his year-old brother to All Japan’s Dojo, but it wasn’t realized. He returned again for a tag team match with Johnny Smith on 28 Julyand was planning to promote an All-Japan show in his country inbut it wasn’t realised either. Before embarking on another All-Japan tour, he visited Dan Spivey and stayed in his home in Florida for a week, while Spivey hamou on holiday.
When Spivey came back, he and Billington took hits of LSD, which resulted in Billington coming close to death twice in one day, but he was revived with adrenaline shots by paramedics both times. Dynamite’s body had degenerated to the point where he was “practically haoud and bones”, as the bottom portion of his tights were very loose. In the end, Dynamite delivered his wes tombstone piledriver on Great Sasuke, leading Dos Caras to powerbomb Sasuke for the pin.
While at the airport to return home on the next day, Dynamite had a second seizure the first one was in and was sent to the hospital immediately. Inhe was divorced from his first wife Michelle Smadu the hanoud of Bret Hart ‘s then-wife Julie with whom Billington had one son and two daughters Marek, Bronwyne and Amaris. Following the end of his marriage to Michelle, ha,oud moved from Canada back home to Wigan with his parents. There he married for a second time to a woman named Dot, with her he had three stepsons; John, Steven and Mark.
