Dusty Rhodes passes away

Paul Levesque on Twitter just announced the passing of Dusty Rhodes.

Dusty Rhodes was one of the most charismatic pro wrestlers in history and among the most popular wrestlers and biggest drawing cards of the 70s and 80s.

The only details we've heard is that he had a fall at his house earlier today and his kidneys were shutting down and he started to get dehydrated.

Rhodes is generally considered the biggest star in the history of the Florida regional territory and booked Jim Crockett Promotions in the 80s and WCW in the 90s.  He's been working in WWE developmental for years.

We will update shortly.
