 Tribute - Bruiser Brody
Frank Donald Goodish of San Antonio, known as Bruiser Brody, was stabbed in his dressing room minutes before a match and died on a hospital operating table.
He didn't say he did not stab Brody, his defense was that Brody was a 'drug-crazed, violent, savage, on a drug enduced rage' and he was acting in self-defense that night.
This was considered ironic because anybody that knew Frank Goodish outside of the ring knew was one the nicest guy in the world, and didn't have a violent bone in his body.

 Larry Matysik Interviewed In Wrestling Perspective #113
By most accounts, Frank "Bruiser Brody" Goodish was a complex man. A legitimately tough individual, Brody could be one of the most difficult people in the business to work with -- particularly if you were a promoter seeking to shortchange him.
To a degree, it was a label he earned, as Brody got into fights with other wrestlers, and sometimes refused to go along with the program, even if it hurt the promotion and other wrestlers' popularity in the process.
There are only a few really happy stories of people that were able to utilize the business rather than in the reverse way.
