    One of the handful of wrestling personalities that seemed really nice with no ulterior motives behind his niceness.

    Was a Ledgend in every sence of the word. Face push for his two sons now I imagine!

    Jesus that's shocking, out of the blue. Was he still helping out with NXT?

  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert

    The only details we've heard is that he had a fall at his house earlier today and his kidneys were shutting down and he started to get dehydrated.

    Very much so yes. He helped with interviews and character development. NXTers aren't saying nice things because he passed away. He was very well liked and a mentor to all:

    RIP Dusty.

    ...not afraid to admit it, I'm actually tearing up. Dusty was, and always will be, a massive example of why you shouldn't let the status quo dictate what path you should follow in life. Dusty wasn't the most athletic looking man. In a time when wrestlers all had to be more muscle than man, with the looks of a Greek God, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes entered the arena. Dusty was clearly not going to win Mr Universe, and wasn't blessed with supermodel good looks. But Dusty has heart, Dusty had drive, and Dusty knew how to make people believe in him.

    He became a legend in the business, respected by anyone who called themselves a fan, and was a huge influence on the industry as a whole. The common man reached the top of the mountain, and he etched out a legacy in it's face that will never be taken away.

    RIP Dusty.

    Huge loss.

    Hopefully gets a good send off on RAW and Cody at least can drop the 'dust gimmick, if only for one night.

    RIP dusty Rhodes.

    What's getting to me and leaving a lump in my throat is reading all the tweets from all the nxt superstars and women. It's not just a simple "RIP dusty" but theyve all added "a mentor and friend" and he seems to have left a huge mark on nxt. Which is nice to see. I've decided to search the WWE network and selected the starcade 85 match between dusty and Ric.

    Such a legend. That word gets thrown around a lot in the wrestling world, but it's true of Dusty.

    So highly thought of, immensely talented, and a try giant in the business. One of the very best to promos of all time, without doubt

    I'm sure him and macho will be dropping all sorts of elbows in real granddaddy of them all. R.I.P Dusty .... Thanks for the memories .

    He got a bicycle !

    First thing that came to mind for me is Chavo dropping Kerwin White after Eddie. Goldust won't as that is his character Cody should be Cody though. Damn this is fcuking terrible I still remember watching Dusty in the polka dots, he was awesome.

    Really sad and a great loss to the younger workers he had been helping.

    Earliest memory is the mixed tag from Wrestlemania 6 which I used to rent on VHS from the video shop. All participants in that match are gone now :(

    Gonna give the American Dream The Dusty Rhodes Story DVD a spin tonight. Glad I didn't get rid of my DVDs since there's so much stuff not on the Network.
