Dusty Rhodes Passes Away

Dusty Rhodes has died, aged 69.

Born Virgil Runnels on 12 October 1945, Rhodes was a major star in the early territories and also the National Wrestling Allliance, Jim Crockett Promotions and World Championship Wrestling. He joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1989, though his two-year stint is infamous for Dusty’s yellow polka dot attire and valet, Sapphire.

Upon leaving the WWF, Runnels returned to WCW as a member of the creative team, while occasionally competing in the ring. Following a short-term stint in the nWo, Rhodes left WCW for a short run with Steve Corino in ECW.

He eventually returned to WWE, signing a Legends contract in 2005. In 2007, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, with his sons Dustin and Cody doing the honours.

He also inducted Eddie Graham, the Funk Brothers and the Four Horsemen into the Hall of Fame.

Runnels is survived by his wife and four sons.
