What you loved:
- 1992 SummerSlam - Tore the house down with Bret Hart in one of the best matches ever.
- British Bulldogs - This was in Dynamite Kid's "Love" section when he was evaluated so this choice is appropriate for today.
- Look - The hair, boot tassels, British flag cape, and his size made him stand out.
- In-Ring - A great mix of power and agility, he was known for his running powerslam and stalled suplex.
- Hart Foundation - Formed a great heel faction alongside Owen Hart, Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, and Brian Pillman.

"Look: 9.5. Iconic, eye catching. Loads of "it" and physical charisma. One step below your sort of ultra, super instantly recognizable perfect 10’s."
What you loathed:
- Drugs - This was a common occurrence during Bulldog's era, and he got caught up in using them as well.
- Later Years - When he return to WCW in 1998, it was a forgettable run. He then returned to the WWE, but their Attitude Era booking changed up his gimmick too much and he didn't get over with the fans, like before.
- R.I.P. - Left us at the young age of 39 years old.
- Promo - Never known for his promos, he did most of his talking in the ring.
- World Title - Although the British Bulldog was very deserving, he never won a world title in singles' competition.
Best comment comes via Jimmy_MacUK:
"His rampant steroid use undoubtedly contributed to his early death, while his firing from the WWF in late 1992 when he looked set to solidify himself as a singles star was terrible timing. His alleged use of other drugs also harmed his in-ring career; see Bret’s autobiography for further details. A classic case of missed opportunity, coupled with bad luck (a back injury to Dynamite when the pair were hot as mercury, and a back injury of his own in WCW) perhaps robbed us of a first British-born WWF/E Champion."
On to the poll! With 174 votes, British Bulldog's average score is 3.9.
Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick is one of Triple H's true burials.
