HTM was getting heat back then, has to be the funniest shoot interviewer ever too, he doesnt care about any love for the boys , and it shows 🤣
Well, to be fair, his chauffeur in that video became a multi-time world champion and he didn't.
Exactly @Hotdiggity11 even the addition of sapphire was supposedly his input thing is this all took off like most things and it gets forgotten both Vince and his Father through Eddie Graham liked Dusty especially Junior who was obviously inspired by those superstar vs dusty matches
now was there a little competitive heat at one point sure absolutely Dusty was literally his toughest completion pre Nash & Hall debuting on nitro but Vince respected Dusty
Yup, I think at that point Dusty was fine not being a serious character and having fun. I heard the same thing about Sapphire being his valet. He had 2 decades of being a serious character in other territories. I think his WWF run was mostly just a last chance to make money as a full time wrestler after getting fired by JCP/WCW. He only left after getting offered a booking job by WCW.
