TMZ reached out to Ric Flair regarding the death of his friend Dusty Rhodes.
Flair's agent released the following statement:
"Today I lost one of my greatest opponents and greatest friends. He was the definition of heart and soul and I'm honored to have shared the ring with him countless times.
He became the 'American Dream' because wrestling needed a hero they could respect, and he was the man for the job. Dusty Rhodes, I will miss you my mentor and friend."
