He was one of the old school wresting greats!

PS: kind of surprised the guy made it to 69 as hard as he lived.

Default The American Dream has Died

I met him at a gate on C concourse in the ATL airport many years ago. Very funny guy and down-to-earth. I was a fan.

I believe he lived in East Cobb early in his career....I guess to be near the Turner studios.

Say it ain't so!

A great American has died....

On a side note, my brother-in-law in St. Simons played golf with him several years ago. Said he didn't have much of a short game, but could absolutely knock the stuffing out of the ball.

He was my favorite wrestler of all time. I grew up watching Dusty on Championship Wrestling of Florida with Gordon Solie and Buddy Colt as the announcers. How sad today is.
