“Dynamite Kid” Tom Billington died on Wednesday at age 60. No cause of death was provided when WWE.com announced the news of his death this morning.
Powell’s POV: Billington turned 60 on the day of his death. He was an amazing in-ring performer who had memorable runs in Japan, Calgary, and really everywhere he worked, and is best known many as one half of the British Bulldogs tag team from his WWF run with Davey Boy Smith. The wear and tear from his in-ring style resulted in severe back and leg injuries that ended his career and confined him to a wheelchair.
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 was certainly an inspiration to myself and many others and really revolutionized pic.twitter.com/req7CWTdxm
