On the latest episode of the DragonKing Classic Wrestling Show, host Karl Stern bring you the latest in a series of wrestler biographies. This week, Karl takes a look at the incredibly popular, mythical, and controversial "Intelligent Monster" Frank "Bruiser Brody" Goodish.
Brody was a wild bearded powerhouse who ran roughshod through the United States, Japan, and Puerto Rico before his untimely death in 1988 at the hands of Jose "The Invader 1" Gonzalez. Until his death by stabbing in 1988, he was one of the biggest business stars in the world. In Japan, it was reported that at times he made in excess of $14,000 per week. It is impossible to tell the tale of recent biography focuses like Stan "The Lariat" Hansen and Abdullah the Butcher without also telling the story of Bruiser Brody.
Attached to this show is a special audio bonus feature! Karl recorded an audio companion for the Super Stern Stick Flash Drive based on issue 35 of the DragonKing Press Newsletter. That issue dealt with the death of Brody as told by some of the people that were there or later talked to Jose Gonzalez including Tony Atlas (the closest thing to an eyewitness), Dutch Mantell, and "Nightmare" Ken Wayne.
I hope you enjoy this show and a detailed look at the crazy life and untimely death of Bruiser Brody.
