7 Reasons why Bruiser Brody is a legendary figure in pro wrestling
#2 A wild, compelling character
Just by virtue of being huge, Bruiser Brody was going to have a successful wrestling career. Then he built up his body until it rivalled those of the icons of the era such as Superstar Billy Graham.
But what really catapulted Bruiser Brody to fame and eventual legendary status was his fantastic presence and performance of his wild man crazy as heck character. Bruiser Brody would charge through the fans in the arena swinging a giant chain, and the fans would scatter like leaves before the wind.
In fact, Brody was so good at playing the crazy man, it may have helped his killer walk free. The jury in the murder case was confused between Bruiser Brody the character and Frank Goodish the man, which may have led to an acquittal in the court room.
