I've mentioned this before on other boards, but is worth repeating. Brody had a house next door to my maternal grandfather in Indiana. My grandfater was an ailing, frail guy in the 70s and Brody fixed his entire roof, gratis. He may have been a dick to some people in the wrestling business. To ordinary people in real life, he would give the shirt off his back.
My mother had absolutely no use for wrestling, but was genuinely sad to hear about Brody's death, because she was always appreciative of how he had helped out her father.
Lots of people are assholes at work, but ask their relatives and friends and they will say they are "the salt of the earth" because, well..to their relatives and friends they are.
Some other time I'll discuss the whole "Why was Brody brought in, why did Hansen get the belt" AWA stuff that was mentioned in this thread. That's sort of a thread in itself for another day (as past arguments on KM and other sites has taught me).
