Bret Hart Remembers The Dynamite Kid, Calls Him “The Best Wrestler Ever”

WWE legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart took to social media to pay his respects to his brother in law, “The Dynamite Kid” Tom Billington. Bret referred to Billington as “The Best Wrestler Ever”. Here’s what Bret had to say:

There are people in life that have a ripple effect both professionally and personally. Tom “Dynamite Kid” Billington was one of those people. The second professional wrestling match of my career was against Dynamite. I benefited from his greatness and through our matches in Stampede, WWE, and everywhere in-between, I became a better wrestler because of him. Dynamite truly was the best wrestler ever, pound-for-pound. Tom was family, my brother-in-law, and we were very close. In many ways I felt like one of the few people who truly knew him, both the good and the bad. I saw Tom one final time this past June in England and I can only hope he is finally at peace. My thoughts are with his children Browyne, Marek, and Amaris, and the entire Billington family.
