I was a huge Brody fan but more for the character he played in the ring barking and such than the great athleticism he displayed. I saw him wrestle live once in Corpus Christi, TX when I was on vacation in June of 1982. He wrestled the Mongolian Stomper. The match was only so so. Gino Hernandez & Tully Blanchard vs Ken Lucas & Ricky Morton, the semi main, was much better. Corpus was a fun town. Drinking age was 18 in Texas then so I was shitfaced most of my vacation there.

The Brody apologists are still out in full force. Kevin mentioned Larry Matysik but you can also add Dave Meltzer and fanboy Matt Farmer to the list. Brody was a prick that did what was best for himself at any cost. No shock that somebody killed him. Despite his flaws, Brody to this day remains one of my favorite wrestlers.
