According to Dusty over at OSW, he has a series of two books coming out, starting this August.

What's the over/under of people who will buy a book by a career jobber.

I say 200 (only because Dusty's 57 kids will buy at least one copy a piece, and Dr Jeff will buy another 100 to distribute to his stripper clientele)

I'll say more than 200...Career douchewads like Capt. Lou will buy several, as will James...Beard. Juanita will probably buy a hundred to shill on the OSW front page, too.

I can't wait for the stories about how his birth was a work, and he's not really who he says he is.

Juanita can shill the books for him at some local grease-mop flea markets.

Exactly what the world needed - another "tell-all" wrestling book (just a jizzoke, brother)...

I have no problem with Dusty and I wish him well.  Maybe I'll buy his book.  At the very least I hope I can get Dusty, Juanita, and Dr. Jeff to autograph it for me for free.

It's a shame that when he was in McMahon-land they didn't give him a crazy gimmick (like a "Wolfe-man" schtick) or something like that ~ he would be very marketable today because he worked for everybody Vince, WCW, Fritz, etc

300 - the osw gang (if there are any left) will buy a bunch.  I have to assume family and friends will purchase also.  Maybe his proctologist will show him some love.

Wouldn't he sell 200 alone between his kids and Juanita's?

Actually make it 201 as I'll probably buy a copy. I wonder if I can get him to sign it "To carpetbeggar?"

The mantra of "everything in the entire world is a WORK" got old, fast.

I think most people don't dislike Dusty, really, but that philosophy being espoused again and again makes him a target.

I've got nothing against him personally and I bet most others here don't.

I have nothing against Dusty either. He seems to be a good guy. In addition to the everything in life is a work troll, Dusty has bad taste in women. Who in their right mind would fuck Jade on a regular basis? I think Jade is really cool but there's no way I'd do her. She could pass for a tranny.

Update. http://www.rasslinriotonline.com has all the info. Instead of two, we've decided to publish just one book. I figure James can handle it. Puts the release date back to early Sept.

In all fairness, Dusty's always been cool to me. I think he was starting to get that condescending attitude that a lot of old pro wres fighters have towards "civilians" (YOU WEREN'T THERE~~~). The fact that he was a JOBBER (that's right I said it) for most of his career makes it all the more puzzling.

Does anyone know what his opinion of Dr. Jeffy was when he(JeffY) was getting all of his heat on OSW. I'm not talking about what he posted on the board but what he might have said in the 'super-secret' mods forum and various pm's?

This ties into my lack of afinity for Dusty and for Ken Timbs. They were essentially jobbers who only got a couple of minor pushes in territories that were very low on the totem pole. Ken later got a big push in Mexico at the dawn of a boom period for the business down there at a point where no American promotion wanted him. Yet in their early days on the various message boards and probably still, they acted as if they had careers that brought them the kind of fame, acclaim, and wealth of people like Steamboat and Michaels. That they dished that and others readily accepted it never sat well with me.

I don't recall Ken ever playing up his level of fame as anything more than it was. He was down to earth and he downplayed his Mexican success to the point that when Jose Fernandez wrote up an obituary that went into detail about his Lucha Libre career, many posters on OLC were surprised by how much success he had there. He also didn't have the "I was a wrestler so I am better than all of you marks" attitude that Dusty has. He was "one of the guys" at OLC who treated everyone with the same respect.

He was typically quiet about things. The only things that got under his skin were BobM and "the OLC guys".

I have no beef with Dusty that I know of.  We generally got along and had some good discussions, but to me his attitude as the glorified simple man and good ol' boy got stale over time.  He knew everything about nothing and nothing about everything. 

I look at Dusty using the opportune time to use his gimmick/work on the message boards.  Just look at the culture over the last few years, the NASCAR craze, Larry the Cable Guy, Gretchen Wilson, etc.  It was supposed to be cool living the redneck lifestyle.  I don't even have a problem with that, but when Dusty tried to use this as justification for him to know about anything, it became a problem.  Many people called him on it, then he really would act like degenerate by name-calling or playing the hard-ass role in which somehow that means what he says is the gospel.   Thank goodness the redneck era and fad is fading quickly.  He is narrow-minded with no real meaningful facts behind his debates and arguments other than "because I know" for whatever reason he was using that day.

I pretty much enjoyed his wrestling stories.  I found his wide knowledge of Bruno as horseshit.  Just because he met him does not somehow make him the all-knowing.  I met Bruno a few times, also, does that make me the most knoweldgeable person about Sammartino? 

There were alot worse ex-wrestlers than Dusty who go around trying to blow their own horn.  Dusty did that on occasion but not much.

I did enjoy communicating with Ken.  Seemed like a genuine good guy, but then his downfall was when Juanita took aver the keyboard, and we began living the whole redneck thing over with Juanita calling the shots.  Dusty definitely knows alot more than Juanita when it comes to about any subject.  She is a total box of rocks!

To echo Papa Voo's point, i'll use an example that pertains to me.

I spent 10 years of my life involved with boxing on pretty much a daily basis. I gained at least a modicum of understanding of the boxing business during that time. Dusty then tried to tell me how the boxing business works...not based on any actual time spent in it, but by stating how his experience as a rassler and a conversation with Ernie Shavers made him privy to a complete understanding of things. (That and a piggyback by RBG, who basically pulled the same shit, but at a junior level) Yet what's ironic is that this is the same guy who tells all who listen that we can't understand the rasslin' biz, cause we weren't there in the ring, and that we just don't get it. But he want's to tell me that this rule doesn't apply when it comes to my sport...that he does get boxing cause he was a rassler? Hypocrisy at its best.

To reiterate what others have said, I absolutely can't see where this is coming from.  I've never had the pleasure of interacting with a more humble and down-to-earth wrestler.  Ken's death is what started the downfall of OSW because the tone of the board slowly changed after that and it slowly but surely turned into the condescending "you weren't there" crap that all the other boards are.  But that never happened while Ken was around.  And Dusty didn't do that at the beginning either.  He always had more of an edge than Ken (not that that's a bad thing) but I never heard him overhype his place in the business.  As years went on he became more combative with posters who were probably intentionally trying to bait him.

A few months after Ken died, Bob Moniz went on his what can we do to improve the board rant. Then came Bob's idea of a home page. Bob refused to advertise. Then Juanita got more involved. Bodi became a mod to appease Juanita. I could go on and on. I hated to see OSW die like it did but like others have stated, it was inevitable after Ken died.

Ken Timbs was one of the most genuine human beings I've ever talked to in my life.  He offered to get my stepson into a prestigious wrestling program here in Roswell where his son Nikolai was a coach and he barely knew me.  Like Rossi said, Ken was definitely not the norm for a wrestler. 

Tamalie, you're kind of surprising me here.  Do you think that Bill Moody should be treated with more respect because he was better known or in a more prominent position?  Guys like him and Rose are the condescending pricks.  Add others like Mark Nutly (a never was guy to boot) and I'd see your point.  Ken & Dusty are just a couple of southern boys who liked to tell war stories, the way I see it. 

Claw, I can't wait until Jade starts a war with you.  She has been fighting a one-way battle with me for years and I have no idea what she's upset about.  It's like a country without nukes trying to hit the US.  I just laugh.

Based on what people who knew him have said, I will admit to possibly having misjudged Ken. I had no idea that "Ken" was very often Juanita for a long, long time. A lot of my negative feeling towards Ken are probably due to stuff that she said with his username and being unable to tell the difference.

Same thing for Dusty's family....there's no way they are paying cover price for this. They are expecting freebies.
