Anyone else out there a Rick Rude fan? Massive shame that the WWE havent done a DVD on the Ravishing One- though I guess Heenan's not in great shape. Still other wrestlers from the era could talk about him. Besides some of us ladies just want to see the pose off against Ultimate Warrior again...and the Cheryl Roberts segment. Pure genius!
I was planning on doing same kind of thread recently. It's a fucking shame this legend doesn't have a DVD yet. WWE has tons of footage from WCCW, NWA, WCW, WWF, ECW and probably more.
Also it sucks he isn't in the Hall of Fame yet. Must have something to do with the fact he double crossed Vince after the montreal screwjob and appeared on both RAW and Nitro and did that shoot promo over the screwjob.
One of the best heels of the early 90s. He had it all, looks, charisma, inring, promo skills. He was the complete package.
Sting ended his career in japan in 94, he was already a established main event heel and was 3 time WCW international champion. And in 99 he passed away, way too young.. It's said he was preparing to make an inring comeback in the WWE.

Great look, great physique, great in the ring with a devastating finisher, great on the mic.
Like already mentioned the total package. He is in my top 5 of all time favourites and I'm sure many fans miss him
One of the top heels in the 80's Rude was always a decent character. You have to wonder if he would have been WWF champ had it not been for Hulkamania running wild.
The Ultimate Warrior's RAW speech:
Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalised.
One of the most important moments of his career as a manager. Rude is also overrated as a manager. He managed both DX and nWo.
Unfortunately senile Vince can never let him in his Hall of Fame even though Rude deserves to be remembered, just like Macho man does. Vince definitely took this personal. When Senile Vince screws over people himself, he is right. Typical example of a hypocrite.
Vince may have a vendetta against him much like Macho Man because he ditched the WWE twice for WCW during critical times in the company's history.
That aside, Rick Rude is one of the few people in wrestling history that had the total package. Charisma, ring skills, mic skills, ring presence, ability to draw heat, etc. Loved his ring introduction when he would insult the crowd and they would show video of fat men booing him and women booing him [While blushing] as he took off his robe.
