Dusty Rhodes snapshot / Headline Sufer®Dusty Rhodes remembered by WWE on Twitter / Headline Surfer®DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes is ranked 25th best among the top 500 greatest wrestlers of the past 65 years.

The HeadlineSurfer.com column Wrestling ReWind presents its latest top 500 poll in honor of Rhodes, who died Thursday in Orlando, reportedly after a fall. He was 69.

The 25th ranking among the top 500 wrestlers truly demonstrates Rhodes' standing among the pro wrestling greats.

Rhodes, with his roly-poly girth, was not a hulking figure like the immortal Hulk Hogan, No. 1 of the top 500 wrestlers in the Wrestling ReWind rankings. But Rhodes played to his strengths with that girth as the "blue collar son of a plumber."
