What do we know about it other than what Tony Atlas has said?  I can't recall there ever being an all encompassing discussion on the matter?

Brody was a star in Central States.  Nobody in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois or Iowa ever heard of The Invader.

Verdict: Murder.

Case closed.

Meltzer wrote a lengthy article about Brody's death when it happened. There are two books out on Brody. I have all that stuff. Maybe I'll find the newsletter and books tonight and provide some info.

So, should we believe the word of a man that killed another man?

For what it's worth, Harley Race was a guest on a radio show a few years ago and somebody called in asking about the Brody killing.  Harley wasn't what you'd call sympathetic to Brody's fate and suggested If he had a different attitude it wouldn't have happened.

I think it was Nick Bockwinkle whom I heard on an internet radio interview (might have been with Cubeta) and he had basically the same opinion. He didn't condone murder, but also couldn't feel too sorry for someone who pushed around and threatened others until someone struck back. Even Buck Robley, who was tight with Brody, said he used to push and intimidate Gonzalez to the point that people couldn't even look at Gonzalez with respect because of how much of a bitch (for lack of a better word) that Brody would make him.  He said Brody got off on regularly humiliating and challenging the manhood of Gonzalez in front of everyone. Like Bockwinkle, I certainly don't condone killing someone, but I also recognize the difference between being an innocent victim and putting yourself in a position for something bad to happen.  Pushing around a desperate scum bag in dingy Puerto Rican locker rooms/rings doesn't seem to be the wisest choice to me.

When I moved to Atlanta, I heard the term "blanket party", which turned out to be bringing your agitator somewhere and beating him with a pillowcase of rocks. Sounds like a better alternative than stabbing a guy.

But if you can kill your tormentor, and get off without serving even one day in jail, is that not better than hitting someone with a pillowcase full of rocks?

Brody being murdered sucks, but I can't see too many people within the business showing too much sympathy, considering what an arse he was to deal with, holding promoters up for money on the day of cards, etc.

Verne Gagne basically said the same thing too. I think the quote was he (Brody) got what he deserved. Even though Brody was an asshole, he didn't deserve to be murdered.

That is the way I feel.  I lost tons of respect when Nick said that, and have for Verne if he said it too.  Saying somebody's attitude may have helped cause something like this is a far cry from saying they deserved it.  The very same assholes busting a nut to kiss Nick's ass by sticking up for him for what he said were the very same assholes that took Warrior to task for saying Liz, Hawk, and Davey Boy deserved death because they did drugs.  Nick was a great wrestler and I feel is unappreciated as an all time great wrestler, but that doesn't mean I am mark enough to excuse a bullshit statement he made.  I love how some of Brody's biggest detractors hated the guy yet kept booking him so what does that say about the two faced pricks?

This is a Blanket Party.  It's a single bar of Soar in a pillowcase.

It's pretty much the same conclusion Chris Rock reached on OJ: no one's saying he should have killed anyone, but you understand why it happened.

He could have made the point without murdering him.   Brody was obviously an asshole.

Sorry Ulti, wasn't taking you to task and I agree with you.  I don't condone what Brody did, but promoters were self serving asses that would destroy any marketability their wrestlers had and also made so much money off the sweat of their wrestlers.  I just laugh how promoters were lauded for taking advantage of their workers and a wrestler is vilified for doing to the promoters before the promoters could do unto them.

yeah, I just see a difference between "deserving what you get" (no, I don't think he deserved to be murdered) and "putting your own self in a situation that could turn bad for you" (which he did).  If Gonzalez went there with the intent of stabbing him or even threatening him with a deadly weapon, he is a piece of shit for that, but even close friends of Brody have claimed the amount Brody pushed Gonzalez was extreme. And if Gonzalez IS that big of a piece of shit pussy, that's all the more likely that he'd pull some shady, cowardly move rather than confront Brody as a man.
