    One thought on “Brody: The Triumph and Tragedy of Wrestling's Rebel”

    1. After the success of his book about Wrestling at the Chase, Larry Matysik narrows his focus to telling the story of Bruiser (aka King Kong) Brody, from his early days to his unsuccessful stints in pro football and as a sports writer, to his metamorphosis into chain-swinging wildman, to his murder in Puerto Rico in 1988.Brody is in my top three or four pro wrestling books, right up there with Pure Dynamite and the Terry Funk book. Lots of good road stories.

    2. Overall a good read on the Life of Frank Goodish AKA Bruiser Brody. Written with his widow and with that in mind it certainly painted him in a good light, perhaps more so than in reality (but perhaps not). Brody was certainly a much talked about wrestler in his day; was almost sure money wherever he wrestled. While to some who view his matches today may not think he measures up, he was a top performer in his time. His true "gimmick" was that you never really know what he was going to do. His mat [...]

    3. This book tells the tale of wrestling rebel frank Goodish a/k/a Bruiser Brody. This wrestler was a nomad never working in the two major promotions WWF and WCW. Instead he became a legend in Japan and worked independent dates around the world. Unfortunately one of these bookings led to his death in a locker room in Puerto Rico. The book interviews his wife and close friends to tell his tale.

    4. Decent book, dragged at timester reading it, I'm still not sure why everyone thinks so much of this guy as a performer, and I've seen his matches.certainly not on the level of Andre or Taker as that kind of wrestler. Decent read, but not great.

    5. Good read. Definitely told a story about a two-fold man: Bruiser Brody and Frank Goodish. One of the true pro wrestling mythical characters is examined by a close friend and the subject's wife.

    6. A decent enough treatment of Brody's life and times, but the format of Matysik's bio is somewhat jarring.
