Known for his wild hair, big bushy beard and bulging eyes, Bruiser Brody was a madman in the truest sense of the word. After 15 unpredictable years in the ring, the brawler earned the reputation as one of the toughest of his time, but instead will be remembered best by his tragic passing.

After making his professional debut in 1973, Brody became known as a bit of a nomad. Bouncing around from promotion to promotion, he never stayed in one place for very long. During his brief stints in WWE, WCCW, AWA and the NWA, among other places, he took part in memorable battles against Andre the Giant, Abdullah the Butcher, Dick the Bruiser and the Von Erichs.

Internationally, Brody was seen as a legend, especially in Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, the Puerto Rican ring would be the last he would ever compete in. In July 1988, Brody was stabbed to death in a locker room shower. Brodys' impact and frenetic ring style live on in the memories of all who witnessed his mayhem.
