It’s been a little over three years since the American Dream passed away. Dusty Rhodes was one of the most respected and beloved personalities to ever grace the squared circle, and even years later, his friends and those that he’s affected in the business still remember him fondly.
Rhodes’ birthday was today, causing a wave of tweets from wrestling personalities throughout the world.

I was sat with Dusty in his office at the PC one day and his family arrived, Dustin, Cody & their wives.They started to discuss about his health problems that were not really known. I went to leave and Dusty said “Stay there Steven, you’re like family”.Thank you for everything X. pic.twitter.com/8CTMGuLJNs
