Autographed Sting and Dusty Rhodes Photo - NWA/WCW Starrcade ‘88 [December 26th, 1988]
A great photo taken right before their match against the Road Warriors at Starrcade ‘88: True Grit.  Rhodes and The Road Warriors actually spent part of the year as the NWA World Six-Man Tag Team Champions but all that famously came to an end whenever Hawk and Animal turned on the American Dream.  As the head booker at the time, Dusty had Road Warrior Animal pull a spike out of his shoulder pad and jab it into Dusty’s eye in order to get blood and showcase the viciousness of the Road Warriors.  Unfortunately, the use of blood on television didn’t thrill the higher ups at Turner Broadcasting System and Rhodes ended up getting fired because of it… but not before he competed with Sting against the Road Warriors at the Starrcade PPV.
