2. Dynamite Kid
Tom Billington, known to wrestling fans the world over as the ever popular Dynamite Kid, was one of the finest tag team wrestlers in the history of the sport. Together with his real life cousin Davey Boy Smith as the tag team known as the British Bulldogs, Dynamite Kid was one of the most consistently entertaining and athletic acts in the World Wrestling Federation’s tag team division in the ‘80s.
The British Bulldogs wrestled many classic matches for the gold, but it was all cut short when Billington suffered a back injury.
Other injuries and drug problems eventually forced Dynamite Kid to retire from the wrestling ring and things have not always been good for him since leaving the business. In fact, his financial woes became such a problem that his wife started a GoFundMe page for him, claiming Billington had been in a care home for an extended period of time and WWE was not assisting them with the costs.
