Rhodes' figure was a huge key to his success at the box office as the ultimate sympathetic babyface.
Chubby and loveable, Rhodes was never afraid to endure an incredible scripted beating in order to draw the most heat for his heel opponents.
His sons, Dustin and Cody Runnels, both pursued careers in professional wrestling and performed for WWE.
After graduating high school, Rhodes played baseball and football for West Texas State (now known as West Texas A&M University).
Billed as "the son of a plumber", Rhodes did not have a typical wrestler's physique; his character was that of the "Common Man", known for the personality exhibited in his interviews.
WWE chairman Vince Mc Mahon remarked that no wrestler "personified the essence of charisma quite like Dusty Rhodes".
(October 11, 1945 – June 11, 2015), better known as "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, was an American professional wrestler, booker, and trainer who most notably worked for the National Wrestling Alliance, Jim Crockett Promotions, and the World Wrestling Federation, later known as the WWE.
In fact, Dusty's was quite the opposite, with his rotund belly and conspicuous red blotch on his right side.
Rhodes was also a two time World Six-Man Tag Team Champion with The Road Warriors.
Rhodes had feuds with Abdullah the Butcher, Pak Song, Terry Funk, Kevin Sullivan, Blackjack Mulligan, Nikita Koloff, Harley Race, Superstar Billy Graham, "Crippler" Ray Stevens and, most notably, The Four Horsemen (especially Ric Flair and Tully Blanchard).
My belly's just a lil’ big, my heiny's a lil’ big, but brother, I am bad. Nature Boy Ric Flair, the World's Heavyweight title belongs to these people. One way to hurt Ric Flair, is to take what he cherishes more than anything in the world and that's the World's Heavyweight title. This time when I take it daddy, I’m gon’ take it for you. Don’t let me down now, ‘cause I came back for you, for that man upstairs that died 10-12 years ago and never got the opportunity to see a real World's Champion. The promo—which references out-of-work steel workers, factory runners and other blue-collar individuals—apparently resonated with wrestling fans so much that people came to him in arenas in tears to thank him for "honoring their plight".
I’mma reach out right now, I want you at home to know my hand is touchin’ your hand for the gathering of the biggest body of people in this country, in this universe, all over the world now, reachin’ out because the love that was given me and this time I will repay you now. And I’m proud of you, thank god I have you, and I love you. In 2015, an ESPN article referred to "Hard Times" as Rhodes' best interview, writing, "In just over three minutes, Rhodes fully encapsulated every ounce of his charm by endearing himself to blue-collar mid-America".Turning professional, Rhodes tried out for the American Football League's Boston Patriots but was cut.He then played for the Hartford Charter Oaks in the Continental Football League until the team folded.And hard times are when a man has worked at a job for thirty years, thirty years, and they give him a watch, kick him in the butt and say "hey a computer took your place, daddy", that's hard times! And Ric Flair you put hard times on this country by takin’ Dusty Rhodes out, that's hard times.
