Re: Your thoughts on the 'Dynamite Kid'
He had a tremendous impact on the sport with his ring work. He helped usher in a new age of wrestling talent. When he "broke through" in the WWF we were still in an era of punch, resthold, kick, clothesline, bodyslam, back body drop and finisher (at least we were in the US). Not that everyone had a limited move set, but it was just the norm at the time. It was shocking to see him snap a suplex like he did.
I think without a doubt he would be considered one of the greatest of all time if his injuries had not shortened his career. I do consider him a GOAT ring worker. He belongs in the conversation of greatest middle wieghts easily.
