Yesterday, June 11, 2017, marked two years since WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes’ death.
Our own Eddie Mac remembered his life and legacy with a couple posts here at Cageside Seats, but we were hardly alone in reflecting on what the man known as “Dream” meant to the wrestling business and those who loved him.
Here’s a sampling of the social media messages commemorating Dusty, mostly from his “NXT Kids”, but also from his real ones:
Don't mourn because he left us, smile because we had him.#Dream— Corey Graves (@WWEGraves) June 11, 2017
Two years ago today, we lost the absolute best. There's really no way to truly describe how much we all miss him.— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) June 11, 2017

Today I will hold steady and not be sad. The #Dream lives in all of us. You, the fans, were his very being. Tell your parents you love them.— Dustin Rhodes (@Goldust) June 11, 2017
Rhodes may be gone, but his impact on WWE and the artform of pro wrestling isn’t going anywhere... certainly not as long as the people he raised and taught are around.
