    Today, on his 60th birthday, the Dynamite Kid has passed. A true pioneer, trailblazer, and legend in pro wrestling whose impact on the wrestling industry, as a whole, was as vast and important as any other wrestler in history. While part of my childhood breaks to hear he has passed, I also know just what kind of person he was. Irregardless, may he RIP and join the wrestling heaven and cause havoc up there

    I loved the Bulldogs as a kid. I always had beagles around the house, so when Matilda was dognapped I was one horrified 5 and 1/2 year old.

    Now my most prominent memory is the unintentional humor of Capt Lou and Ozzy Osbourne running around the ring with the tag titles at WM 2 as Dynamite crawled on the mat and tried to put himself together again after taking a flat back bump off the turnbuckles and to the cement floor - which the cameras mostly missed.

    What did he do that was so bad?
    I don't know, but people keep hinting he was a bad guy.

    He tortured animals and threatened his wife with a handgun fairly often. His ribs were almost always destructive and not just for jollies.

    Shitty treatment of enhancement guys (see Foley)

    Broke a girls kneecaps/legs to get her father insurance money:


    Injected steroids into Matilda, the mascot of his Tag Team (allegedly, but confirmed by a BUNCH of backstage guys)

    Tons more, but just Google it.
