  • Dusty Finish
rdfs:comment
  • The Dusty Finish is the nickname given to a specific ending to a wrestling match in which one wrestler appears to have scored a win only to have the decision reversed, often on some small technicality. Although Eddie Graham is usually credited with inventing the finish, it is named after Dusty Rhodes because Rhodes was famous for invoking the finish in his own matches when he was a wrestler/booker.
  • Although he never came up with the idea, Dusty Rhodes booked the finish literally hundreds of times, and it is now more closely associated with him than anyone else, even taking his name. Essentially, a face challenger is seen to defeat the heel champion, and win the belt(yes the fucking BELT, idiot). However, anywhere from mere seconds to weeks after this victory, the result is overturned, altered, or simply forgotten about altogether, resulting in the heel champion "still" having the belt(yes, it's called a fucking BELT, moron).

However, anywhere from mere seconds to weeks after this victory, the result is overturned, altered, or simply forgotten about altogether, resulting in the heel champion "still" having the belt(yes, it's called a fucking BELT, moron). The effectiveness of the Dusty Finish can be seen in the continuing success of the AWa and Jim Crockett Promotions, both of which frequently used the Dusty Finish. In the 70's, 80's and early 90's Harley Race and Ric Flair each "lost" the NWA World Heavyweight Title by Dusty Finish approximately 350 times. It is estimated that approximately 80 different men were briefly recognized as NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Vince McMahon has also used the Dusty Finish, thrilling the WWE Universe with false World Title changes involving vanilla midgets like Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam and C**** B*****.
