I have a sizeable list of "favorite workers." Hennig probably ranks at the top.
But, I'll bet that I've watched more footage of the British Bulldogs than of any other wrestler(s), PERIOD.

When I was a little kid, I was a mark for the Bulldogs. I had the original LJN Bulldog figures. I saw the BD's at the first live wrestling event I ever attended while visiting family in Baltimore. Davey was one of my early inspirations to begin lifting weights as a skinny kid. And, when I started training in an indy promotion, I studied an enormous amount of BD footage; particularly their matches in Japan. Even now, I'll occasionally watch a random clip on the computer.

Yeah, I've kind of got a special place in my heart for the BBD's.
I need to get out more. Wink

Does any of you guys know what Dyamite Kid's training program looked like?

It's incredible how he could keep such size while either traveling or being in the ring most days of the year.

I know he had a lot of injuries later, mostly from all the bumps he took in the ring. His back was the worst, but in an interview he also mentioned his shoulder and knees.

I still want to buy his book 'Pure Dymanite', amazon doesn't have a kindle version so I will order the paperback.

Many of those guys from that time were on TONS of compounds from
performance-enhancers,
recreational drugs,
Rx drugs,
OTC drugs (which were much more accessible then)
alcohol,
etc.

According to Dynamite's autobiography: Valium to sleep on the plane, speed to wake up, steroids gallore, hit the gym, go to the show, 3 percocets before the show, muscle relaxants after the show, beer, cocaine, and 3 percocets before bed.

There used to be a video of both cousins training in Diamond Gym.
It wasn't an instructional video or anything - actually a wrestling promo with Mean Gene.

It did show the Bulldogs training, but I can't find it here, and it looks like it may have been taken off Youtube.

I know you asked about Dynamite, specifically, but this is the only "British Bulldog" related training footage I can find now.


I used to update this thread RELIGIOUSLY for years with videos and photos.
The main reason I stopped was because so much of what I searched for is no longer viewable here because either hotlinking was disabled, or Youtube took down the clips or terminated accounts.

Yeah, he looked great when he wasn't chasing the size game.

What always impressed me most about Davey, though, was that - even at his biggest - he was still athletic as hell! I can't think of many guys north of 250 lbs. that did handsprings. He always maintained an appreciable level of agility even as a big man.

Regardless of his size, there weren't many times in his career that Davey Boy Smith didn't look impressive

The Bulldogs vs The Hart Foundation were the best matches that I saw live back in the day (along with Steamboat vs Savage.)

Many thanks Montague for the information and links!!

I first learned of Dynamite Kid when I was reading Bret Hart's excellent book 'Hitman'. I then watched some Youtube videos of Dynamite Kid and had never seen anything like that in the later WWF and WWE which I had followed. His combination of size, speed and high flying moves is still on another level.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Dynamite was a true pioneer. He introduced a style that paved the way for what we see today.

He was the first wrestler to perform a "super-plex" off the top rope.
A lot of guys have done it since, but he was the first!

If you've got the time, browse the history of this thread. I apologize that many of the videos and photos have been disabled, but we've had some very decent discussions about Dynamite and Davey over the last several years.

I will ALWAYS LOVE the British Bulldogs!!
