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: david shaw (hubert, NC)

What this man gave to the sport is easy to quantify: everything. He's now in a wheelchair, alone about where he started in Wigin, England. To hear him lay out his beginnings, paying his dues, the phenomenal work he did and the devotion with which he approaching his trade is fascinating. As is often the case in these books he details personality clashes in a personality-based business. Bret called him pound for pound the greatest, and his innovative approach, he varied moveset, snappy and stiff execution in the ring against newcomers (Mick Foley mentions the clobbering he got coming up in his book) and veterans alike made him the pitbull of the locker room. Hearing his story about his journey is worth the read if only to see what inspires the man to his efforts for our entertainment.
