Bruiser Brody x SPLX
Bruiser Brody is widely regarded as one of the best brawlers in the history of professional wrestling. Having been an athlete playing American Football for West Texas A&M University, Brody began training under the infamous Fritz Von Erich. From there we would work freelance for promotions such as: World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF; Now WWE), World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), World Wrestling Council (WWC), and Championship Wrestling from Florida.
Known as one of the best brawlers, Bruiser Brody also known as King Kong Brody* would have classic brawling battles against Abdullah The Butcher, Kamala The Ugandan Giant and 'Crusher' Jerry Blackwell. The Undertaker (then known as Texas Red) would have his first professional bout against Brody. He would even challenge Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF World Heavyweight Title twice at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in 1976.
In the Early 1980's, The Superbeast would create his legacy in Japan. Regularly working for All-Japan Pro-Wrestling (AJPW) and a brief time in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). Upon his entrance to the ring, he would incite fear to the audience by swinging his chain around clearing way for him to walk. The battles inside the ring were even more brutal, going to war versus the likes of Jumbo Tsuruta, Terry Funk, Genichiro Tenryu, Dory Funk Jr., Giant Baba and 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair. Brody would form a tag-team union with the great Stan Hansen called Chōjū Konbi. This beast of a team would go onto win the AJPW World's Strongest Tag Determination League in 1983, and the following year with the PWF World Tag-Team Championships in Yokohama, Japan for AJPW also.
In 1988, Bruiser Brody was devastatingly murdered in Puerto Rico. He is survived by his wife Barbara, and his son Geoffrey. In 2019, VICE commissioned a docu-series called Dark Side of The Ring which did a superb job of chronicling the story of this great athlete's legacy in and out of the ring.
We are proud and privileged to present to you - the chain-swinging master of chaos, Bruiser Brody.
*Bruiser Brody changed his name to King Kong Brody in territories that Dick The Bruiser would work in out of respect to Dick.
