The Other Side: "Son of a plumber"/"American Dream" Dusty Rhodes
The guy with whom the crowd identified. He did not look like a professional wrestler even by a long shot. You won't even take him for someone who works around a promotion. But he had a big run and a legendary feud with Ric Flair and the Horsemen, cut excellent promos and had a run in booking side as well.
His "hard times" promo is one of the best if not the best (I consider that it is the best ever promo). What about Dusty Rhodes the wrestler? How good was he in the ring? Was Bionic Elbow even a finisher for he hit it a lot in between based on some of the matches I have seen. How was his connection with the crowd, psychology, in ring storytelling, flow and any other consideration you have in evaluating the in ring ability of a wrestler? Especially if you were around his run, was his in ring ability well suited to the times? How good was he between the bells?
