Default Dynamite Kid passes away

An abortion of a human being by all accounts but also one of the best wrestlers of all time. Proper pioneer

They're dropping like flies these old wrestlers. One died just a couple of years ago.

Revolutionary. His matches with Tiger Mask paved the way for all the power rangers in Wrestling today. Absolute piece of shit human though.

Bully. Loads of stories about it.

His autobiography is a terrific read.

Not sure how bullying a few gigantic men in lycra qualifies him as 'an abortion of a human being' tbf.

Hope he went out with a bang!

From Bret's book:

Quote:
Tom was knackered. His entire body was broken; his shoulders, his knees, his neck, his back and worst of all his heart. I tried to defend him, even offering to talk to Vince for him. Michelle tearfully explained that Tom had neglected to pay any of his U.S. taxes and was now unable to go back there until he paid— he owed a lot of money. The day before I got home she alleged that Tom had threatened her with a gun and actually said he was going to kill her, so she, Julie and all the kids had spent the night hiding out in a motel until I got home. Julie was cold and distant and all the kids were terrified and ran for cover every time there was a knock at the door. Tom phoned constantly, but when Michelle tried to talk to him he threatened to come over with a bottle of vodka in one hand and a shotgun in the other. When I tried to reason with him, he hung up on me. By week’s end he was threatening to kill Julie and our kids too.

On my last day at home Jade ran in the front door looking scared and grabbed her cousin Bronwyne’s hand. “We gotta hide! I saw your dad parked in his car right down the street!” All the kids scurried off. I jammed on my running shoes and marched straight out to face Tom. Even though he couldn’t miss me coming, he seemed startled when I pulled open his car door and got in. “That twat send you down here?” he sneered, clutching the steering wheel. He was trembling and looked unkempt. He’d never bothered to fix his teeth, even though Vince had given him the money for it, and his hair was scruffy and dark sunglasses hid bloodshot eyes. “What the hell are you doing, Tom?” I asked. As mad as I was I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. “What’s this about you saying you’re bringing your gun over to my house to kill everybody? Tom, your kids and my kids are all terrified of what you might do, and I gotta tell ya, just lookin’ at you, you’re starting to scare me too. You don’t have a gun, do ya?” “Nah, fook.” This legendary, nasty little rock of a man slumped over the steering wheel and began to cry. “Fookin’ broke I am. I’ve thrown it all away. I’m done. I’m goin’ back ’ome.” Tears dripped off his chin, helplessly, and I could tell he hated himself for being weak. “I can’t even wrestle anymore.”

He was biting his top lip so as to angle the tears into his mouth. I’d never seen him cry. We’d both been blessed with innate ability and passion, but his life and his choices had caught up with Dynamite. Just when my career was starting to take off, his was ending. My heart went out to him even though he was a classic example of that old adage: What goes around comes around. A few days after I left for the road again, Michelle handed him a one-way plane ticket to England and told him to never come back. The Dynamite Kid, one of the greatest workers of all time, broke and broken, a bona fide wrestling tragedy. He had been an untameable stallion, but now this crippled pony was on his last ride, to the glue factory.
