I watched the British Bulldog tag team,I admired The Dynamite Kid, I was really amazed how he could jump off of the top ropes and down on the one or ones he was wrestling.
He and Davey Boy made Professional wrestling worth watching.
I am saddened to hear of his passing, my prayers go out to his family in this time of their great sorrow.
Their will be a big part missing with out The Dynamite Kid!
