Dem Boys, one of their many nicknames, are icons in their hometown, Laurel, Del. and are well-known all over the world.
WBOC’s Mike Lichniak has been a Dusty Rhodes fan for years and made this statement:
“The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, was a pioneer to pro wrestling. A big man with a huge heart. He was beloved by many outside of the ring. Inside of the ring Rhodes took on the best of the best. Winning the NWA world title 3 times. He had countless rivalries around the world. He even paid a visit to Salisbury back in 2001. All he ever worked for is to better the business that he loved. He worked for big time promotions and the little guys all around the country. His interaction with fans was like no other. A truly great man was taken from the world. RIP Dusty. You will be missed.”
