In the AWA The Crusher would do his gravely voiced interviews about drinking beer at the local bars and dancing the polka with fat barmaids. The idea was to not have an entire lineup of Bob Backlund types, but at the same time it was recognized that an entire babyface roster of colorful guys would have been overkill. Dusty, Crusher, and others got over big by being the only or among the very few with that sort of charisma and rap.
Dusty was copying Thunderbolt Patterson.

I just watched a bunch of Thunderbolt this week on Championship Wrestling from Georgia, and damn he sucked on the mic.  I saw him as a kid and thought he was mentally challenged and felt bad for him.  
Maybe he was better at an earlier point in his career or maybe you were being sarcastic.
