When it comes to cutting a real, heartfelt, intense promo, there is Dusty Rhodes, and then there's everyone else.
Dusty made a career of giving fans some of the greatest matches in the history of the business. His rivalry with Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen is arguably the greatest feud of all time, and his promos, like Ric's, were as equally legendary.
When Dusty spoke the ground shook. He was a force of nature on the mic, and every time he cut a promo, he was more powerful and more persuasive than a Southern Baptist minister preaching hellfire and brimstone on a Sunday morning.
Dusty was such a natural, and made it look so easy. If there's one thing that the business is missing at times, it's the fire and enthusiasm that Dusty brought whenever he opened his mouth.
