Re: Dusty/Flair

yes wasn't dusty on the booking team in the NWA midatlantic days and the late 80s? I bet he was part of the flair clique backstage as they were both obvious favorites of Jim crockett promotions.

Re: Dusty/Flair

If i recall correctly Dusty Rhodes was one of the main bookers in NWA as far back as the early part of the 80's or at least 1985 whilst still being a wrestler as well and he and Ric Flair were very close all the way through to the early parts of the 90's after Ric Flair returned. So much so that people like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner and Shane Douglas have all ripped into both men at some point from the mid 90's onwards citing Dusty Rhodes booking his closes friends to World titles wins like Ric Flair, Harley Race, Ronnie Garvin, Barry Windham, Lex Luger and Ron Simmons.

The two of them worked together almost non stop from 1981 through to mid 1986 with Harley Race thrown in every now and again as well as The Road Warriors, Nikita Koloff, Magnum TA, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Ole Anderson and Lex Luger also being involved. I don't know how close they are today but i know they were still very close when Ric Flair was in WWE last time round as Dusty Rhodes was an agent for Raw or something like that so they were on the same show every week but with Dusty Rhodes in Florida for FCW and Ric Flair around the area for most of the last couple of years due to his run in TNA i'd imagine they saw a fair bit of each other.

Couldnt be further from the truth. They hated each other's guts.

Re: Dusty/Flair

According to PWI, they were lovers for a few years and tried to stay friends but I think Dusty had some jealousy issues and started giving Flair a hard time for seeing younger guys.
