Damn that sucks. I always thought he was the best wrestler of the Armstrong boys, but he never showed any personality and couldn't connect with the fans at all.

I loved watching him in all his gimmicks in WCW. He combined fantastic '80s hair with late-'90s small-guy style.

I think that might have also been a guy who was hurt by the the end of territories. Had Brad spent his career wrestling in the same Alabama and Georgia towns his father starred in before him - if he had been allowed to be a big fish in a smaller pond - he probably would've done well for himself. The problem for him and his non-Dogg brothers were being very regional guys in promotions with aspirations of being national (and shedding their regional links if they thought it'd broaden their reach.) WCW seemed to like Brad the wrestler but they ran from Brad the personality and there's times and places that personality would've worked.

Also, if he just wrestled in Alabama, a lot less chance his career is ended by crazy luchadors.

What a shame. 9 years older than me is too damn young. If there was ever a guy who needed a legit masked persona so he wouldn't have to talk, it was him. RIP Brad.

See, I think that he could have been like a Bam Bam Bigelow circa 1987 type character if WCW would have put him with a face manager. I truly believe that Jimmy Hart would have been awesome. Fucking Hogan didn't need him during his 94-96 run and Brad would have benefitted big time IMO.

It is super sad to have heard of his passing though. Great hand, had a look the ladies loved. I think my favorite match of his was definitely with Jimmy Garvin at Starrcade 1986.

Um, younger than me. And a couple others.
