Bad News Brown first caught my attention at Wrestlemania II. During the twenty man battle royal he turned on Bret Hart and cost him the win. Hart came back and broke the trophy that was given to the winner, and it was a great time to be a wrestling fan.
He retired shortly into the 90's and just wasn't up to the continuous stress that involved being in the same industry for those years.
I can't speak on the personal life of Bad News Brown, but it is a sad day in professional wrestling, that's about it.
Former Olympic judo bronze medalist Allen Coage -- better known to wrestling fans as Bad News Allen and Bad News Brown -- has died suddenly. He was 63.
Coage died early Tuesday morning in Calgary at Rockyview Hospital, having been rushed to the hospital, complaining of chest pains.
