It was such a joy for me to rediscover Dusty’s promos and matches through the eyes of my children. They loved the “Dream” – and so did I.

The son of a plumber, who wined and dined with Kings & Queens (and slept in alleys and ate pork n’ beans). The man of the hour, the man with the power. The hit-maker, the record-breaker. With style and grace – and a pretty face – he’d make your back crack, and your liver quiver. If you weren’t a fan of his, you were at the wrong address. Because while the other wrestlers might’ve been smilin’ and jokin’, The Dream always – now, and forever – be cookin’ and smokin’.
