Description


220 page. Paperback.

From Humble beginnings in England, to warm family atmosphere of the Hart Foundation in Calgary, Canada, to heights of success with the WWF, Tom Billington wrestled all the big names, including Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, and Mick "Cactus Jack" Foley.

Now, scar tissue and memories are all he has to show for sixteen years in the game.

Pure Dynamite is a blow by blow account of Tom Billington's career, who wrestled solo as the Dynamite Kid and with Davey Boy Smith as the world-champion tag team, the British Bulldogs. Confined to a wheel chair as a result of damage to his back and legs, years of steroid use have also done serious damage to Billington's heart and personal life. Pure Dynamite is as much a cautionary tale as it is a fairytale. Painfully candid, The Kid's story takes all the gloss off professional wrestling. The price you pay for wrestling stardom? Just as Tom Billington.

Reviewer: Paul Stulberg (Oakville, Ontario)

"Pure Dynamite is the type of wrestling book that leaves you shaking your head. It is one of the prototypical disturbing examples of how drugs have ruined yet another wrestler's life. Arguably one of the greatest workers of the modern era
