Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

This week, we look at “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. Already on episode two, we’re switching up the formula. With Dusty known for his promo ability, we took a look at three of Dusty’s greatest promos and three of his best matches. Watch the matches, listen to the promos, and follow along with Evan and Javier as they dissect the matches.
