Wrestling career

Dusty Wolfe Interview with Former WCWWWE Wrestler Dusty Wolfe Wrestling Heads

Wolfe is best known for his long tenure as a jobber in what was then known as the WWF, making his debut there as Dusty Wolfe in March 1987. In June 1989, WWF began billing him as Dale Wolfe so as to distinguish him from Dusty Rhodes, who had just left WCW for the WWF (the two wrestled each other on television later that year). During his time in the WWF, Wolfe wrestled as both a babyface and a heel.

He was respected for his ability to work with, and put over, major stars, working with many of the WWF's top names from 1987 to 1993. He also wrestled for Fritz Von Erich in World Class Championship Wrestling, and appeared frequently in the NWA territories and independently, where he would typically appear near the top of the bill. Wolfe also worked for the World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico where he was a two-time tag team champion. In 1996, he made several appearances in World Championship Wrestling at WCW Saturday Night TV tapings. He remained under contract with WCW until 1998, but was not used after 1996.

Later life

After retiring completely from wrestling, Wolfe attended the San Antonio branch of Texas A&M University, where his grades were sufficient to qualify him for membership in the Phi Alpha Theta Honor Society; in 2012, he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in History. He then attended Sam Houston State University, where he obtained a Master's Degree. He has taught history classes at Northwest Vista College since 2015.

Wolfe has published a number of books and essays about the wrestling industry since 2008. He is married and has four children (one of whom is named after wrestler Dick Murdoch).
