I'm new here, but I have been reading the forums for a few weeks now. Yeah I found that interesting this claim that Rhodes was a racist, I'm not sure where the proof of that really is.
Although to be fair I thought Watts booked Ron Simmons to be the champion, not Dusty? Or did they work together? Those years in WCW I'm confused as to who was booking what and when so I could be wrong.
But his other point about Dusty being a homophobe because he cut off his ties with Dustin, I'm pretty sure (not 100% but) they fell out because Terri(Marlena) and Dusty did not get along and Dustin took his wife's part. The story Dustin told was that he was supposed to meet Dusty to play golf but Terri was sick so he didn't meet up with him, and they didn't talk for years after that.
So while I don't think Dusty cared for Golddust necessarily, it is my understanding they had already fallen out before the Golddust character even started. That wasn't the reason they weren't talking in my estimation.
I could be wrong, but that is the vibe I got watching Dusty's DVD (although it was produced by WWE so who knows?).
As for the roundtable discussions, I haven't seen many but I have enjoyed the ones I have seen. Although yeah of course they will be slanted to WWF/WWE line of thinking.
As for the Freebirds not being a big deal, they were a pretty big deal against the Von Erich's in WCCW and a pretty big deal in the AWA, and really if anything they may be a bit underrated today. Just my opinion.
