Still very athletic and very fast. Stiff as hell.


That was for "teaching" purposes...

I'm currently reading 'Under the Mat' by Diana Hart, I'm about halfway and so far I'm really enjoying it. A lot of it obviously deals with Davey Boy and Dynamite too.

There are a few horror stories about Dynamite.

About Davey Boy's steroid use, she says he started using steroids from doctors in 1987. Apparently he used 3 cc's of Deca twice a week as it helped reduce pain and swelling in his joints and also used some testosterone. Deca seems to have been his main steroid.

Dynamite's Japan work is incredible. Especially his earlier days...wow.

For sure, those matches are on another level!

If you enjoy the backstage goings-on of that era, I highly recommend reading Tom Billington's book, "Pure Dynamite" (if you haven't already).

Definitely a must read for anyone interested in that era.

Agreed.

I believe Billington's book was among the first in the "tell-all, pro-wrestling autobiography genre."

I read it not to long ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good read and good insight as to what went on behind the scenes.

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.

OMG, impressive.

I learned a new exercise in this video, where Dynmaite is seated, lifting and twisting the dumbbells up and together to work his chest. Seems like a good exercise.

There's a lot of British Bulldogs and Dynamite Kid videos on this channel.

Some other wrestling matches and interviews too but mainly British Bulldogs.

Nice find!
This footage was very popular among "tape-traders" years ago.

I still remember the old vendor who used to set up a gimmick table at our indy shows. He had hundreds of VHS tapes from Japanese promotions and other "underground" footage. A lot of us trainees would browse and hit him up before the fans arrived to the building. He was always nice enough to cut us a break.
Then, marks and other "hopefuls" would crowd around him during intermissions.

That old guy made a killing at those shows.

Yep.
Allegedly, that short program was ALL Vince's idea.

I'm surprised Highspots hasn't had this taken down yet as they have in the past.
