I watched the WWE Network special dedicated to the life and career of Dusty Rhodes yesterday and thought it was brilliant.
Half of it was bits pulled from the Dusty Rhodes DVD I bought when it first came out in 2006. However, it was the first time I had seen it since then so it didn't feel like I was watching something regurgitated.
Jerry Lawler was the continuity host who would say things leading to the next chapters.
The newer stuff was all the more saddening because it was from the people he had tutored throughout the latter part of his life.
He played a huge role in the development of the stars of tomorrow who are currently plying their trade under the NXT umbrella or - in the case of a few - have already made their way to the main WWE roster.
And that's what I took out of it more than anything. He's left his mark with the future of wrestling. With that said, his influence has played a part with generations before the current crop. It's just he appeared to have a stronger bond with the new lot.
If you haven't seen it and subscribe to the WWE Network. I suggest watching it.
