Dusty Rhodes is by and large one of the most beloved professional wrestlers of the 1980s. But the “American Dream” had a reputation behind the scenes that made him more than a few enemies.

 

As it turns out, Robert Gibson and Ricky Morton are not the only former professional wrestlers who had heat with Dusty Rhodes.

Former NWA Heavyweight Champion Ronnie Garvin sat down for a shoot interview where he called Dusty Rhodes an “a**hole” who “killed his own territory.”

Former NWA Champion believes Dusty Rhodes doesn’t deserve the high praise that he gets; he says Dusty Rhodes doesn’t worth much”Speaking on a recent episode of “Under the Mat Radio,” former NWA World Heavyweight Champion talked about several professional wrestling topics.

Garvin said Dusty was “way overrated as a booker” and needlessly wasted money.

Thinking Dusty Rhodes was “overrated”: “Dusty Rhodes was overrated. He was the booker most places he went, Florida, Carolinas,” said Garvin. “I didn’t like what he did a lot of times.

Garvin states that Rhodes used to put himself in places where he didn’t belong and failed to get big money for the promotions that he worked at. “A lot of politics, he put himself in places he should’ve been, he didn’t draw the big of money,” stated Garvin.

“When he was in the main event, he booked 30 men on the card and had more gimmick matches”.

The Rock n’ Roll Express were so over with the fans at that time that they could sell out any place that they worked at.

“When he was in the main event, he booked 30 men on the card and had more gimmick matches. Rock n’ Roll Express, those kids were so over.

So over, that they would sell out and Dusty Rhodes would book them in small towns because he didn’t want them on the same card as him because he wanted the thunder.”

“He was such a jealous guy,” Garvin said, reiterating the Rock ‘N Roll Express complaints and stating that he was so jealous of the tag team that he ended up booking himself in six-man tag matches with them.

Garvin also said that Dusty stopped booking him in title matches once he won the title, claiming he was “jealous” and “didn’t like me because I was a babyface, and I was over.”

Unfortunately, Dusty Rhodes is no longer around to defend himself. He died in 2015. But it seems that before his death, he did a lot to repair his image in the business, serving as a mentor for the NXT talent and working behind the scenes in a number of ways with WWE.

In fact, Lucha Underground star Vibora, during his time with the company, said Dusty was “great” and that he “really supported me.”

During a time while injured, he remembered promo class where Rhodes “brought me in front of the group and said ‘Look, this guy is injured and he has done some things in here that I think nobody can do,’ and he asked for a standing ovation and a round of applause.”

Vibora told WrestleZone that it meant a lot “because I was in doubt in that point of my career, so I’ll always remember him as someone who helped me at some many levels and it was an honor work with him.”
