Legends game adds an American Dream
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling

Dusty Rhodes

Get ready for some old-fashioned clubberin', video game style. Acclaim has announced that the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, will be included in Legends of Wrestling: Showdown.

"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, who has been one of the biggest names in the wrestling "bidness" for over 30 years, is a former three-time NWA champion. He is a true rarity in the wrestling industry, as he has been a part of every major North American promotion over the last decade, including NWA, the WWF, WCW, ECW and NWA-TNA.

Rhodes, for his part, is excited about the new Acclaim title, due in stores in April. "I've held championships all over the world and it's an honour to be part of this roster and to work with Acclaim," Rhodes said in a release. "Make no mistake about it daddy, this April my 'bionic elbow' will be dropped on all comers and we gettin' funky like a monkey."

Rhodes joins a stellar line-up that includes Jake "The Snake" Roberts and The Ultimate Warrior.
