BigWilliam - A complicated legacy and a sad story. RIP.

Very sad story. Unfortunate by all reports he never seemed to get his shit together. The reuniting with tiger mask via Skype was great

RIP Tommy.

Maybe it's time to get the Bulldogs in the HOF.

Like you say a complicated story but the guy was years ahead of his time with his style and innovation.

I have a signed copy of his book somewhere in my house.

Purely in ring one of the greatest and possible best of his generation.

I'll choose not to judge him for his behavior outside of the ring and remember his great work in the ring.

 

Love his Stampede Wrestling days.

 

RIP.

He was in borrowed time forever. Finally he is pain free. RIP Kid.

He was fun to watch. I don't remember what ppv it was, but I watched one recently where the crowd would cheer anytime he was about to suplex someone. 

 

Also, he looked like he took toooooons of steroids.

And... everything else. The Bulldogs partied hard in the day.

He was in a wheelchair and pretty much home bound since 1997 so most just forgot him or got him confused with Davey Boy

Siciliano di Brooklyn - What exactly put him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life?

Assorted drug use and his body falling apart.

He fucked up his back in late 1986, didn't take care of it. Was off for a while, made an appearance in January to drop the titles. DBS had to help him to the ring, and they joined arms to hide how bad his back was.

He had his first major seizure in 1987, kept going. Second one was in 1996.

His left leg stopped working in 1997 due to accumulated injuries.

Dynamite had major head and spine injuries that he masked with pain killers for far too long. He was basically paralyzed by the time he retired.

He comes off as unsympathetic asshole in his own autobiography.
