The WWE Announced that Dusty Rhodes passed away today at the age of 69.
Rhodes and Dick Murdoch were an AWA Tag Team that was hated and loved by fans!
Dusty Rhodes was the working mans man. As with The Crusher, fans who worked construction, drove trucks, or pushed carts a grocery store, could relate to Dusty. He was known for his tough street driven interviews and antics out of the ring that promoters feared.
The Wrestler, 1973 AWA movie featuring Rhodes and Murdoch frustrating Promoter Frank Bass as they beat up motorcycle gangs and turn a local pub upside down!
West Texas State saw him on the field prior to the ring.
"The American Dream" both tough and comedic, will be remembered by fans everywhere.
In latter years Rhodes was in Florida where he trained newcomers to his craft.
CPW remembers Dusty Rhodes!
