SICW- As I stated earlier today, we lost another great legend in the wrestling business, not only did Ox Baker entertain us in the wrestling ring, but he starred in the box office hit, "Escape from New York". He told the story when he was in with us how that came about. That part was scheduled for our other great late friend, Brusier Brody. Ox and Brody tried out for it, and Brody was given the part. However, we all know back then what happen to our friend Bruiser Brody. Ox told me when he got back home from the movie try out, he received a call telling him to come to St. Louis for the start of the movie, he hadn't heard about the tradegy that happen to Brody, when the producer told him what happened, Ox was in shock, he couldn't beleive what he was being told, he told me he asked the producer, you mean Brody is gone and you want me back in St. Louis for the movie, and the producer told him, the show goes on. That always brothered Ox. He stated he always tells people that was Brodys' part and that ...

A scenic drive took me back once again to Amsterdam, NY where my brother Ross and I were privileged to accept the induction of my our late father into the PWHF. Joining Stu in the 2014 induction were The Masked Superstar Bill Eadie, Bruiser Brody, Don Muraco, Leroy McGuirk, Al Hayes, Rubberman Johnny Walker aka Mr. Wrestling II, Sherri Martel, Gary Hart, The Fargo Brothers, the late Jackie and Don (Kalt). Among others in attendance were Cowboy Johnny John Lusk Mantell, Stan Hansen, Ray "Doink" Apollo, Ted Gordienko, The Masked Destroyer *** Beyer, Killer Bee Brian Blair, Greg Valentine, Paul Butcher Vachon, Barbara Goodish, attractive widow of the late Bruiser Brody, Mrs. Red Bastien, JJ Dillon, Joyce Grable, Dominic Denucci, Dennis Dipaolo (son of the late Illio Dipaolo) and of course the PWHF founding father and patron Tony Vellano. I look forward to Owen being inducted in the near future. An added highlight to the celebration was going firstly to the New Jersey gravesite of punk rocker idol Joey Ramon ...
You want to see some wild wrestling - Youtube Abdullah the Butcher and Bruiser Brody. If the match here at NDMW is even half this good, you might as well not even fix up the NDMW arena wall, its just coming down again!!
For oldtime wrestling fans, two great villians in this territory passed away a few years ago and I happen to see articles about them. Killer Karl Kox whose real name was Herbert Gerwig died in November, 2011 of a massive heart attack in Dallas, Texas. A fellow wrestler of that same period, Colonel Buck Robley died a year ago of congestive heart failure in Little Rock, Arkansas. Robley was also connected as a manager to Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen. He was also Bob Sweetan's manager. Robley is also credited with the development of the Junkyard Dog. A final ring of the bell to both of them.
Forgotten classic of the day is a match between my two favorite wrestlers from the 90s AJPW era. Stan Hansen and Kenta Kobashi. Just got Hansen's book in the mail so this goes along the lines of that. Tons of awesome insight into the Puro world and Bruiser Brody's personal life as told by his close friend. Also Stan himself was just aa badass. Gotta love Kobashi too. So enjoy everybody. -ProWrestlingBEAR

Blair discusses his longtime friendships with Hulk Hogan and Paul Orndorff, as well as his time working with countless legendary personalities including his Killer Bee partner, Jim Brunzell, Jesse Ventura, Bruiser Brody, Tony Atlas, Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart, Vince McMahon Sr, George Scott, Vince McMahon, Jr., Nikolai Volkoff, and more. Also hear him discuss the horrible boating accident involving Brutus Beefcake and the long standing "heat" between himself and the Iron Sheik! Hope you enjoy!

Carlos Colon is being inducted into the WWE HOF. Colon is without a doubt a legend in Puerto Rico his feud with Abdullah the Butcher was savage to say the least. However, I feel WWE is making a huge mistake inducting this man. In 1988 one of the biggest tragedies in wrestling history took place when Frank Goodish better known as Bruiser Brody was brutally stabbed to death in Puerto Rico by a promotor who refused to pay him. Carlos Colon perjured himself and Brody's killer never did any jail time. It has been widely believed that Colon himself was threatened and paid off to testify against the deceased Brody. Any arguments WWE tries to make about keeping Chris Benoit out of the WWE HOF are now invalid. If they are going to overlook Colons questionable character and focus only on his in ring career then they have no excuse not to do the same for Benoit. I for one would leave them both out for life. ~ Dark Angel Images

THE TERRITORY DAYS. The St Louis Wrestling Club. ~The St Louis Wrestling club was owned by Sam Muchnick and it was considered one of NWA's flagship territories.

The program ran from 1959-1983 and often had over 100,000 viewers per episode. St Louis didn't maintain a full time roster, preferring to use talent from "Central States Wrestling" to fill out the mid card.

Has there ever been a college that has produced more famous pro wrestlers than West Texas State (now known as West Texas A&M)? The list is endless. Most of the wrestlers who attended there were known for football. Don't even think they had a wrestling team! Just some of the famous names to attend include Bruiser Brody, Stan Hansen, Terry and Dory Funk Jr, Tito Santana, *** Murdoch, and Tully Blanchard. *** Tito was a tight end on the same team Tully was qb. Can you name any school that has produced more top wrestlers?
In the history of wrestling a big beard has usually been associated with a guy who was wild, untamed or a Hillbilly. From Pampero Firpo to the Wild Samoans, the Long Riders to the Highlanders and Bruiser Brody to the Wyatt Family. The beard had made fans and other wrestlers fear the "Unkempt" wrestler. Wrestlers like Ox Baker and Jim the Anvil Neidhart were very creative in their grooming styles. It's not enough to be a heel without looking like one as well. This has helped wrestlers like the Moondogs and Mike Knox become hated villains. Guys like Daniel Bryan, Jimmy Valiant and Hillbilly Jim did the opposite and made fans cheer them more with the bearded look. In recent years the beard has made a comeback with guys like the Highlanders, Mike Knox, The Wyatt Family and Daniel Bryan. This practice has made me and a lot of others in the beard culture very happy and I would like to see this practice continue. There's a quote that I use for people who fear the beard and do not like the followers of follicles ...

The best true stories from the fake world of wrestling "AN honest man can sell a fake diamond if he says it is a fake diamond, ain't it?" Today's kingpin CEO of professional wrestling, WWE owner Vince McMahon, would agree with that sentiment. But he didn't say it. The quote belongs to 1920s wrestling promoter Jack Pfefer. Even around the turn of last century, when legitimate wrestling was vying with boxing as spectator sport, promoters knew the truth: wrestling is boring. Two guys lying on a mat, entangled for minutes at a time. Who'd pay to watch that? So they faked it. Slaps across the face that missed by inches. Melodramatic headbutts that sent 300-pound bruisers flying onto their backs. Sleeper holds, pile-drivers, the suplex body slam that hoisted complicit doomed wrestlers off their feet - and lifted fans out of their chairs in excitement." In his new book The Squared Circle: Life, Death and Professional Wrestling, author David Shoemaker tells the history of the fabulism - but also notes that some o ...

Takagi is a fan of wrestlers such as Bruiser Brody and Keiji Mutoh
The world of wrestling has seen many a tough individual come and go. They came in all sorts of different backgrounds including UFC, the NFL, MMA, and some just good old fashioned bar-street brawling. Athletes like Paul "Mr. 1derful" Orndorff comes to mind, Bruiser Brody is certainly up there, I dare any of these men to get in a cage with Brock Lesnar...Unless your name is Steve Blackman, and then who knows...Pound-for-pound, who is the toughest man ever to step foot in the squared circle? JA
Big Pop for too, for mentioning Bruiser Brody.
Luke Harper reminds me of Bruiser Brody--old school

Curious to whether we want to throw our own special names on these awards versus a "Bruiser Brody
This match was just two months before Steve Austin broke his neck against Owen Hart at SummerSlam 1997, which forced Austin to change his in-ring style dramatically, evolving from an ace technician in the Bret Hart/Curt Hennig mold into arguably the most prolific brawler since Bruiser Brody. He was never the same wrestler again, but due to his charisma and work ethic, he still became the greatest money-maker in pro-wrestling history. This is one of the best Austin matches ever--in large part due to Michaels, who was the hands-down best wrestler on Earth in 1997. But he was also hooked on pills, advancing quickly toward what would have been a tragic, premature death had Jesus Christ not intervened. Six months later, he broke his back in a match with the Undertaker and didn't wrestle again for five years; of course, his second run was longer and maybe even better than his first, which is saying something. So, this match--featuring two of the best ever, at their individual physical peaks--is a real sample of ...

My dog Psycho owes me $200.00 dollars. I took him, Batman, Sampson and Bruiser Brody the Chihuahua to the local McDonald where I usually park underneath a tree for shade and this blue haired Winter Texan old lady parked next to my truck and left her poodle barking away at my dogs. Psycho kept quite so I left them alone. When the old lady and me steped out Mickey Ds, we saw Psycho dive toward the window and in an instant the passanger widow became a spider web of glass. Psycho knocked himself out. Just like Bryan from the Family Guy he just laid there weezing. Now Brusier Brody didn't like what he saw, that *** fool jumped toward the spider web but didn't quite make it. The spirit was willing but his chihuahua legs weren't. He dove stright down and landed on top of Psycho's midsection which made Psycho wheez much harder and a fart came out the other side. Never heard a dog fart before. Pick up my heros and headed to my brother's glass shop and had the window replaced, my *** brother charged me ...

Abdullah the Butcher--What can you say? This is two hours of "Abby", maybe the most violent wrestler ever, faces a murderer's row of hall-of-famers in Puerto Rico's World Wrestling Council, maybe the most violent promotion ever, at their peaks. In other words, it's chaos, outrageous bloodshed and hundreds of Puerto Ricans running in terror and screaming in fear, and they're not kidding. Guest stars include: Carlos Colon, Dutch Mantell (aka Zeb Colter), Bruiser Brody, Savio Vega, Chicky Starr and Andre the Giant. There are also a bunch of jobbers, all of whom have the worst days of their lives against the Madman from the Sudan. And if you're ever in Atlanta, check out Abdullah the Butcher House of Ribs & Chinese Food--seriously...
