I swore I would never say stuff like this, but man, a lot of pieces of my child hood have left recently. This is yet another.

Stardust himself.  He always kept himself in such top physical condition so it's a bit shocking to hear that he died at a relatively young age for a pro athlete.  A few years ago Buck Robley and now this. 

Something like this is about the only thing that could have brung me out of retirement.  He was the best talker the sport has ever saw.

He could come into a territory and after the 1st tv appearance have loads and loads of new and dedicated fans.  His matches with Dick Murdock are legendary.  I will come home tonight and get on youtube and watch as many as I can.

RIP Big Dust. Here's a bionic elbow for you, devil. He was entertaining long before it became "sports entertainment".

Dusty was on the card the first time I'd ever watched wrestling in person.

RIP.

Thursday wasn't a good day. We lost a pop culture icon, a pro wrestling innovator and I lost a great friend.  The Dream is dead.

As I was sitting in an office in Asheville, NC at Eblen Charities being interviewed by WWE for the upcoming Owen Hart DVD  and discussing what May 23, 1999 meant to me my cell phone buzzed incessantly. It wouldn't stop and interrupted our recording.

I needed to to take a break and collect my thoughts on a question that I knew was coming but that I still dreaded answering. I excused myself to the men's room and eventually got around to checking my messages and to my horror I found out that my friend of over 30 years Dusty Rhodes had died at age 69 in Orlando, Florida.

The Dream and I talked about a week ago and he tried to convince me that he was "just fine."  I knew something was wrong when I saw him in San Jose at WrestleMania where I again questioned him about his health while sitting behind him at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Again, he declared himself fit and we talked of his significant weight loss. Then down in Orlando at a NXT taping the night before Mick Foley taped his comedy special for the WWE Network Dusty and I talked and he insisted that he was fine.

He was like John Wayne in his final movie 'The Shootist' who wanted no empathy from anyone and who wanted to go out on his own terms his own way.

Dusty and I bonded after Jim Crockett Promotions bought out Bill Watts UWF. Dream trusted me to interpret his booking and creative on syndicated TV that lead me to getting my break on national cable on TBS.

Thanks, Big Dust for believing in me...

He's had a few jaw reconstructions. But look at the color of his skin. The medication is prolly killing him as quick.

When he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, Dusty said: “One thing is for sure, though. When you go back and you look at our industry, you look at passion. You look at the road; you look at hard times on the road. You look at driving down the road, night after night, tryin’ to make a town, getting $25 — that’s hard times. It’s our duty to make it good times for the fans that pay their money to see us perform each and every night.”

Now that’s a hell of a promo.

http://www.webn.com/media/play/dusty-rhodes-looking-for-the-4-22926742/

Two years ago a radio station with a Dusty impersonator called some stables looking for the Four Horseman.

"Dusty": Hello, I'm looking for some horseman?

Farrier: How many do you need?

"Dusty": Four

...

Dusty: Meet me Friday night, Starcade.

Woman: Meet you at the stockcades?  ... I don't know what you're wasting your time for?

"Dusty": Is this Babydoll?  Babydoll, I know that was you, you Jezebel!
