Dusty Rhodes: The "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes personified the average working man. Rhodes wasn't overly attractive, well-built or athletic. Billed as the son of a plumber, his look and size made him the perfect representation of an American, blue-collar man's man, and the fan's ate it up! The former World Champion has wrestled around the country for every major promotion and territory of his day, becoming a Hall of Fame member of every class available. Does Dusty Rhodes have what it takes to add one more legendary accomplishment to his list of accolades?
Roddy Piper: The "Rowdy One" has been listed as the primary influence of so many of today's heels, you begin to wonder if he wasn't the greatest villain in all of pro wrestling. Although Piper never actually won a World title during his long tenure with the WWF, he's still considered one of the all-time greats for his legendary mic skills, promo segments and marquee matches; chief among them fighting Hulk Hogan and Mr. T in the main event of the very first WrestleMania.
Eddie Guerrero: In 2005, Eddie Guerrero suddenly, and unexpectedly passed away in what has to be considered among the worst tragedies in pro wrestling history. Eddie won't be remembered for decade long title runs, or carrying the WWE on his back; in truth, his young death meant that Guerrero spent the majority of his career working the mid-card, first in WCW and later in WWE. What Eddie did bring to wrestling was what we affectionately refer to as "Latino Heat" - a passion, or fire that he carried with him through each match, in-ring segment or backstage promo. Perhaps his greatest gift was simply an unparalleled level of charisma. Whether co-main eventing WrestleMania, or working the dark matches in WCW's tag division, Eddie Guerrero had each crowd in the palm of his hand, whether you were meant to love, or hate him. Viva la raza!
