 - Arnold Schwartz

One of the most beloved tag teams in wrestling history hands down would have to be the British Bulldogs: Davey Boy Smith and the Dynamite Kid. Whether at their peak as WWF Tag champions or at their lowest (having Mathilda dognapped by Haku and Fatu)-shudders-,I honestly can't remember a single fan out there who disliked this remarkable tag teams abilities.

Their timing and in ring teamwork breathed fresh air into a stagnant tag team scene. Their war with the Hart Foundation is still talked about to this day when tag team history is mentioned. The Bulldogs teamwork and camaraderie in ring gave fans the sense that these two had been a tag team for years. Often in wrestling magazines this was in fact true. That the Bulldogs had been a team since day one of their career, nothing could be further from the truth.

This month’s column is hard for me to write. Not about remembering the paths these two followed that led them into wrestling history. It's hard because I don't want to mess this up. I want it to be as perfect as Davey's dropkicks and Dynamite's snap suplexes. Yes, kiddies… before Davey became the powerhouse lately he had an incredible dropkick in the beginning. I remember once him connecting with Duke Myers so hard it left a huge boot imprint on the pride of Portland's chest!! So if I mess this up please forgive me. I just want to do them justice.

Amazingly enough despite their teamwork and rock solid timing they only tagged up once for a very brief time in their first Stampede run near the end right before they jumped to the WWF. As a tag team they only held the International tag titles twice in a eleven year span. Dynamite entered Stampede about the same time as Bret Hart did in the late 70's and instantly they found themselves in a bitter war over the British Commonwealth Mid-Heavyweight title. Still lightweights, Bret and Dynamite could not compete with the heavyweights like Duke Myers or Kassabooboo. But a bigger war was being played out between Hart family patriarch Stu Hart and the evil and all-around meanie J.R. Foley. Hart and Dynamite found themselves caught up in their mentors war. As written before maybe 90% of Stampede's golden age centered around the Hart/Foley war.  More...
