Robbie Dynamite (born Robert Berzins) is a British professional wrestler. He is the current and five-time British Mid-Heavyweight champion and has also held the British Open Tag Team Championship and Unified British Tag Team Championship with Mikey Whiplash.
Professional wrestling career
Dynamite began his career with Staffordshire promotion GBH, later being headhunted by All Star Wrestling in 2001 along with fellow GBH alumnus Dean Allmark. Initially, he was a blue eye teamed with Allmark, but soon turned heel on him, igniting a feud that would run throughout the 2000s (decade). As a heel, Dynamite adopted the moniker "The Body" (previously made famous by American wrestler turned commentator turned politician Jesse Ventura.)
In April 2002, Dynamite defeated Allmark to capture the vacant British Mid-Heavyweight title, thus reviving the historic championship left vacant for the past 21 years since the death of previous champion Mike Marino in 1981. Over the course of the remainder of the decade, he would lose and regain the championship four times, mostly to Allmark. He also formed a tag team with "Chippendale" Mikey Whiplash and together, they captured the British Open Tag Team Title from the UK Dream Team of Allmark and Kid Cool in February 2006 in Staffordshire.
He has now been a regular for All Star Wrestling for the last decade, and is an assistant coach at their school in Birkenhead.

Team Britain finished in last place in America's X-Cup behind Team Mexico, Team USA, and Team Canada. The Tournament was virtually dominated by AAA's Team Mexico. After America's X-Cup ended, Team Britain did not return to TNA for the 2004 World X-Cup. The fourth Team spot was filled by Team Japan.
