Dynamite Kid: A Matter Of Pride
Documentaries • 1h 47m
This project began when Highspots.com traveled to Manchester, England to conduct a simple interview with Tom Billington about his wrestling career. Prior to this interview, nobody knew very much about what happened to Dynamite Kid since he retired from pro wrestling and nobody had been able to unravel the myths surrounding his legacy. Perhaps more than any other wrestler, Tom Billington was a recluse, never agreeing to do interviews, appearances, or even maintaining contact with his old friends from wrestling. After conducting the interview with the reclusive Billington, we realized that he had an amazing story that could not be told merely by his own, humbled words. Therefore, with the help of a lot of generous donors through Kickstarter, we set out on a worldwide traveling endeavor to interview those that knew Dynamite Kid the best and those that still keep in touch with him today. What resulted was a very emotional journey into a career cut short by the abuses of steroids, alcohol, drugs, and a complete disregard for his own physical limitations.
