Greatest Wrestling Ever
This was truly wrestling at its finest. I had the opportunity to work with some of these guys.

The greatest sport in the world
Though it may be predetermined I think they are some of the greatest athletes in the world. JYD, Dusty, Chief Jay Strongbow-I've been a huge fan for over 40 years.

Back When Wrestling Was Fun to Watch
As a lifelong professional wrestling fan, I look fondly back on the days of "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and his feuds with Ric Flair and the IV Horsemen. This was wrestling at its finest hour, and no one could match Dusty on the microphone. That man had charisma oozing out every part of his body, and even though you never knew what he was going to say, it was always pure gold coming from the microphone. Sadly, wrestling today is a far cry from what it used to be. Feuds aren't always thought out very well, and it's more of a showmanship business (physique, mic skills) than just plain old good fashioned wrestling. I think the wrestling business really went down the gutter when WCW took a nosedive right before 2000. TNA is all right, but the company will never be able to give WWE a run for its money and provide good competition like back in the day. It's just a sad day to be a long-time wrestling fan, in my opinion.
