Ricky Steamboat Compares Bray Wyatt To Dusty Rhodes



Bray Wyatt is currently off of WWE programming due to an illness that may keep him on the shelf during WrestleMania 39 weekend.

WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat recently reflected on his experience working with Bray Wyatt in FCW, and how Wyatt reminded him of the late Dusty Rhodes.

Speaking with Bill Apter for WrestleBinge, Steamboat praised Wyatt for his character work despite his average in-ring skills. Steamboat said,

“His younger brother [Bo Dallas], I think was probably a better worker. But Bray had him beat ten times over with his character-isms. Like, I use Dusty, not a lot but I do use him where he wasn’t a high flyer. He was limited to a lot of the things that he did in the ring, the mechanics of all the wrestling moves and holds, he was limited. But his character and his charisma was head and shoulders above most of the guys in the business at that time. His interviews were off the hook, right?”

“So it wasn’t so much that his work in the rain was outstanding; it was all the others that the fans were able to gravitate to, and relate to this plumber’s son… [Bray] was head and shoulders above most of the new recruits that were coming up from the school. And it was only because of his character.”
