Remembering Bruiser Brody


Frank “Bruiser Brody” Goodish (June 18, 1946 – July 17, 1988) was an American professional wrestler who earned his greatest fame under the names King Kong Brody and Bruiser Brody. Goodish was an All-State football and basketball player at Warren High School, Michigan, and played football at West Texas A&M University (then known as West Texas State) and with the Washington Redskins in the NFL. As a wrestler, he helped innovate the “brawling” style and was a legitimate tough guy.

  1. I dated Frank’s sister Gloria for a time and was privileged to have the opportunity to know the other side of Frank. He was a wonderful son to his parents, always thoughtful and generous and always treated my son and I like family. I loved sitting with him and hearing the many stories. I was devastated to hear of his passing in 1988 and will always cherish the time I got to spend with him.
