Topic: Dusty Rhodes


  
  Dusty's_Biography
Dusty Rhodes is without a doubt one of the most charismatic, entertaining, and famous wrestlers of all-time.
Dusty was probably the most loved wrestler in the sport from the mid-1970's throughout the 1980's, consistently drawing exceptionally large crowds wherever he wrestled, be it the N.W.A (and later, WCW), the WW(W)F, the A.W.A, Japan, or anywhere else the nomadic grappler roamed during his 20+ year career.
Dusty would bounce back, though, and 2 years later he again defeated Race for the NWA World title on June 21, 1981 in Atlanta, GA. Dusty defended the title 4 to 5 nights per week during his 2nd reign, and it was that heavy schedule that would help end his it after just 4 months.

In Dusty-speak, the new autobiography of Dusty Rhodes is full of "if you wills" instead of "jelly wellys," with action favouring bionic elbows rather than a figure-four leglock.
