Frank "Bruiser Brody" Goodish was one of the wildest, most insane, and most impersonated men ever to step in the ring. The 6`8 325 lb. New Mexican wildman, with long curly black hair, scraggly beard and furry boots brawled with such reckless abandon and fury that he is a true legend in every country he performed in. His style and image have been emulated more times than can be counted, which is more a tribute to his originality and uniqueness than blatant copying. Bruiser Brody is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, brawlers the sport has ever known. His story is also one of wrestling's most tragic...

Frank Goodish was born in 1946 in Pennsylvania, moved to New Mexico during his youth, and started his career as "Bruiser" Frank Brody in 1973. By September of 1974, he won his first championship -- the NWA U.S. (Tri-State version) Tag team titles with Stan Hansen. This was the beginning of what would be, from that point forward, a life-long friendship. By 1975, Brody was in main event title matches with the great Bruno Sammartino...not bad for only 2 years in the sport!

Among other tournaments and championship's, Brody won the NWA Western States title in 1975, the Florida Heavyweight title, 4 NWA North American titles, 3 Texas Tag Team titles between 1977-79, the Texas Heavyweight title, the Texas Brass Knuckles title, 4 American Tag Team titles (3 w/Kerry Von Erich, 1 w/Ernie Ladd), the Central States Tag Team title (w/Ladd) and the Central States Heavyweight title in 1980, 3 NWA International Heavyweight titles between 1981-1988, the Australian World Brass Knuckles title, the World Wrestling Association World Heavyweight title, the PWF Tag Team titles (w/Hansen), the WCCW TV title in 1986, and the last title he would ever hold, the NWF International Heavyweight title in 1987.  

Brody wrestled with such unpredictability and force...he was banned (for real) from a couple of promotions for wildly swinging chairs and chains at anyone unfortunate enough to get too close to him -- including the fans at ringside! He was an instant success in Japan, and has been considered a "wrestling God" there since his Japanese debut in a tag match with (King) Curtis Iaukea vs. Giant Baba and The Masked Destroyer in January of 1979. More...
