I remember watching the dynamite Kid years ago when he used to be on World of Sport on saturday afternoon here in England.This is how he looked before he moved to the states and gained a lot of size.

I was about 16 at the time and thought he looked massive even back then for someone so young.Then he disappeared for a few years and the gym i moved to had a bar area and a satelite dish installed,so all of a sudden we could watch the WWF wrestling,and who should turn up,but the Kid.I couldn`t believe how much size he had put on since he moved to America.Theres quite a few videos of him from the 70s,if you type in World of Sport Dynamite kid on youtube.

Nice. I will check it out. I always loved the dynamite kid. His snap suplex is untouchable.

For all its worth and despite all the injuries Dynimate Kid had, he was probably the greatest and most talented wrestler ever. A price he has to pay for the wheelchair and injuries today.

So if you like wrestling, you should care.               i always wonder why a guy with no knowledge tries to weigh in with why should we care, if you don't want to discuss wrestling history in an intelligent fashion why the hell are you bothering to come on this section of the site. could it be that you are a post whore only trying to improve your stats why only god knows. sorry for the rant, but this is a good thread and i am tired of seeing  it ruined by a@@holes.

Benoit looks completely different there, although I suppose he still had all his teeth in that pic.

Dynamite was extreme before that was even a wrestling word. Anyone remember his super-duper-plex he gave Randy Savage off the top rope at the "Wrestling Classic" tournament back in 1985 (?). JYD went on to win the tournament. I was just a kid and when I saw that suplex I was speechless because I never saw anything like that before.

Lots of guys do the "superplex" today, but he was the first.


edit: Some guys half-ass it and execute it from the second turnbuckle. Dyno always launched from the topmost rope...

which I suppose would be a lot harder on his opponent than him. ;D


But Dynamite took most of the hard bumps in his matches - both singles and tag.

Anyone know what Davey's wife is doing now? I always thought she was very attractive.

It's a good read. He basically tells you what happens behind the scenes, the parties, the drugs, the affairs with women, etc.

Is it Bret that details how Hellwig and Davey were released from the Fed around '92 because it was found they were receiving HGH from a pharm in England?

Most of their best stuff took place in Japan.
If interested, search youtube.
Or, if you want, I can send you links to DVD's.
