Let’s Say Nice Things About... Dusty Rhodes

Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.

As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

It’s been two years since his sudden passing, so today is as good a time to say nice things about him as any. Today’s subject: Dusty Rhodes.

His nickname, “The American Dream”, is one of the greatest nicknames in wrestling history.

The way he had with words would want to make anyone run through a wall for him. Seriously, watch this promo.

I mean, even if you like Ric Flair, you’d want to see Dusty kick his ass after seeing that, right?

He also sired two sons who have done pretty well for themselves in the wrestling business.

He had an energy that cannot be duplicated no matter how hard anyone tries. You’re still missed around these parts, Dusty.

Your turn. Say something nice about Dusty Rhodes.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
