I saw that he had died but didn't want to start the post because I felt it would only be appropriate for one particular person on here to start the post. Hopefully he will.

Default End of an Era! May the Son of a Plumber RIP
Famously known as the American Dream and to top Ric Flair's Space Mountain, Dusty came up with Stardust. For those of us who witnessed the Rhodes/Four Horsemen feud during the 80's, wrestling has lost one of it's most recognizable figures in Sports Entertainment history! And at only 69, we lost him way too soon!

"He has wined and dined, with Kings and Queens, and I've slept in alleys and ate Pork & Beans". May he now Main Event Heaven!

The Four Horseman Era was my all time favorite. They would not have been as successful without Dusty.

One of the most charismatic wrestlers of all-time.

Truly a tragic day, he will most definitely be missed.

I'm going to an NXT show tomorrow and I'm interested to see if they do anything to remember Rhodes.
