Dusty charges the heel locker room

Here is another example of what I think wrestling no longer understands. In today's business to be a bad ass you have to "overcome the odds" and kill the heels' heat. What they fail to understand is that in segments like this, the face proves his toughness simply by being willing to fight. I know I have said this very thing before, but I really do think it is a huge booking flaw in modern-day wrestling. The inability of some bookers or creative staffs to let the heels get any real heat. Dusty is not diminished one bit through this segment. He was the tough son of a gun who was willing to lay it all on the line to do what's right. He didn't need to be "standing tall" after laying out a dozen heels to look like the man.
