The link is an interview with the Dynamite Kid in 1998. Don't know if it's been posted before but there's a mention of his steroid use and dosages.

He says he was injecting 1.2 grams of testosterone and liquid dianabol...every day.

Quote
When did you start taking steroids?

It was in 1978, in Germany, when Sylvester Ritter was there: he gave me some pills. When I went to Canada, I was introduced to injectable anabolic steroids, like testosterone, decadurabolin, that sort of thing.

Were you ever put under any pressure to use steroids?

Erm, no. But I knew that I had to take them, otherwise I wouldn’t have got a job.

Because, without steroids, you weren’t bulky enough?

Right. Off steroids, I could only get up to about 180 pounds. When I was on steroids, I weighed about 225. You had to look the part, and I couldn’t do that without steroids.
I was taking 200 milligrams three times a day in each of my buttocks which, in total, is 1,200 milligrams per day. Which is a lot. That was testosterone and liquid dianobal.

No such thing as an "essential carb."

Before now, I would very confidently have claimed to have seen and read literally EVERYTHING there is from and about the British Bulldogs. But, although I've heard much of this information before, I don't recall ever seeing this specific interview.

Thank you very much for posting it here!

So, I decided to stay with New Japan...

That was in the autumn of 1984, right?

Correct. and, I took shit-head (Davey Boy) with me.

 Grin



There was a lot of bad feelings between the cousins and their families. Dynamite was very vocal about it, but I don't recall Davey ever saying a whole lot publicly.

Interestingly enough, Tom seemed to cease his public criticisms after Smith's passing.

Back in the late-90's, Billington actually had his own website complete with a message board. The board wasn't like this one. It was the kind on which you would submit a question or comment. Then, either Dynamite or one of the web guys would select and post certain ones onto the board. I think it was run by Live Audio Wrestling (L.A.W.).

Dyno would frequently drop in with a response or feedback, and there was no shortage of digs on Davey.

Tom became rather silent following Davey's death. Naturally, Smith was a popular topic for the next few weeks. A post from someone made it onto the board, which read something to the effect: "Tom and Davey shared many good times and bad. Whatever happened along the way, they were two of the top performers, a top tag team, and family. We should all respect that and their privacy during this time."
Tom finally broke his silence in a reply with a simple, "Thank you."

Despite the animosity, I suspect Dynamite Kid was affected by Davey Boy Smith's passing.

I remember the hugest I can ever recall seeing Dynamite...
It was on some Japan footage. I wish I knew/could figure out the timeline, but I have nothing to compare it to in the Fed or Stampede. All I know is he and Davey were still together, and I think the match was in All Japan.

Whenever it was, I would think the stack referenced above was in use.
He looked AMAZING!!!

Ya, I don't recall Dynamite ever being out of shape...or Davey for that matter. They always looked great. Loved them in 1985-1988.

I've just read his book, Pure Dynamite.

He says at first he used those doses to build up his size. After that, he injected 200 mg of testosterone and 50 mg of Deca every other day, and Winstrol V could be injected every day.

He'd do 4-6 week cycles and then one week off where he took gonadotropin (HCG).

Dynamite also says that most wrestlers didn't use oral steroids because of possible liver and kidney damage.

It seems that in 1989 he was already pretty much off steroids.

Jake also accused them of throwing lit cigarette butts into Damien's bag.

Bret recounted Tom unceremoniously shooting some kind of vermin on his property, but I forget the details.

In Bret Hart's book, he says when he visited him at his home, he found Tom shooting rabbits with a rifle from his porch while drunk, trying to shoot their legs.

I wonder which encounter PWI is referencing.

I've seen Davey vs. Tommy matches in both Japan and Stampede.

No, they wrestled against each other in Japan. Davey then returned to the USA while Dynamite and another English wrestler formed the British Bruisers.

Yeah, I don't believe they worked against each other in "the Fed."

But, I know they had matches against one another in Japan; PLUS, Stu (or one of his sons) booked the cousins in one or several matches against each other in the Canada loop.

My favorite tag team by far of all time. I'm a huge mark for the Bulldogs. Legendary matches with Valentine and Beefcake.

No....he only shows WWE/WWF, WCW and old ECW footage. Nothing else. He has no stock or ownership in AJPW and NJPW and I believe they would rather die a thousand deaths then let Vince in.
