Welcome to another installment of “Not About Dark Side of the Ring” – a humorous weekly review & recap of “Dark Side of the Ring” on Vice.
This week, Steph, Chris, and Don discuss the influential but volatile life and career of Tom Billington, known to fans worldwide as The Dynamite Kid.
The Dynamite Kid earned worldwide fame with a riveting, self-sacrificing style, but violent confrontations outside the ring would destroy his family, his body, and his legacy.
In this episode, the gang discusses Billington’s life and career, Dan Spivey’s impressive head vein, Professor Lance Storm, why Dave Meltzer refuses to look at the goddamn camera, crapping in travel bags, Mick Foley quoting “The Boss,” how Billington’s need to make young wrestlers “pay their dues” is a slap in the face to wrestling, and more.
