Most wrestling fans think they know the story of Tom "Dynamite Kid" Billington and Davey Boy Smith: Two young guns from the United Kingdom who saved Stampede Wrestling and became the British Bulldogs, a tag team that surged in the early WrestleMania era and then crumbled, leaving Dynamite in a wheelchair and Davey with a up-and-down singles run until his untimely death at age 39. But in Dynamite and Davey, the excellent new biography by Steven Bell, you find out just what made these two so special, so unique, and so self-destructive. Join us as we discuss the rise and fall of the British Bulldogs.
