  • The American Dream Dusty Rhodes

    Dusty Rhodes -- the rotund, easy bleeding, easy talking professional wrestler who billed himself as "The American Dream" -- died Thursday, the WWE said on its website.

    Rhodes, whose real name was Virgil Runnels, was 69.

    Rhodes rose to fame as a common man figure. He didn't have the chiseled body some associate with today's wrestlers. He was a good guy wrestler, often battling heels like Abdullah the Butcher, Blackjack Mulligan, Harley Race and The Four Horseman, who were led by Ric Flair.

      He was really funny in interviews. My older brother and I were big fans when we were kids. There's a Dirty Dusty Rhodes documentary on Netflix.

        Interestingly where I grew up Dusty was one of the good guys but up in Minnesota, where my family often went on vacation, he was regarded as one of the villains.

        I'm always still in trouble again
