I had just read that Ax and Smash were going to reunite, and I wondered if they'd invite Crush as well since it didnt seem like he was doing much.

His career highlight was feuding with Randy Savage and having a match with him at Wrestlemania.

I liked when Bobby Heenan would call him the Kona Clown, or Coconut Head.

RIP, Brian Adams. He certainly had a number of different runs in a pretty long career.

That match with Savage was the first time I ever saw guys fight into the backstage like that.

His facepaint after turning was pretty cool.

Crush was also my favorite guy to use in the Royal Rumble game for SNES.

I think my favorite Bryan Adams moment came during his WCW debut.

He enters out of nowhere in a long coat.

Paraphrased:

Adams: "Bret, I know you don't have any friends in this business, but dammit, I'm still your friend."

(Shakes Bret's hand, but tight grip doesn't let go. Bret is ambushed by nWo. Adams reveals nWo shirt under trenchcoat.)

Adams: "nWo 4 life! LOL!"

Next week entire scene is forgotten as Scott Steiner turns nWo and thus is a bigger story.

The media is just itching to point fingers at WWE again, especially when a lot of headlines read "WWE's Crush found dead" ...

Dammit. I hate that my first thought during the beatdown was "Wow, three people who are now dead."

RIP Crush

I will never forget his feud with Doink the Clown over the integrity of being a clown. "My fadda was a clown. You put clowns to shame..."

From that youtube clip there's quite a Kevin Nash resemblence. He could've been the fake Diesel if he wanted.

Add another name to the growing list. Sigh.

They're talking about this on Nancy Grace right now (shes off tonight tho, which is probably a good thing), and you'll never guess who provided them with all their Crush photos.

From Demolition Crush, to Kona Crush, to Evil Face Paint Crush, to Jailbird Crush, to NWO Brian Adams, to Kronic, he seemed to have quite a career. Sorry to see another one go so early.

Wasn't he briefly the KISS Demon as well? I know it was eventually someone else, but I thought Adams did it for a bit.

Was there any mention of Crush last night on RAW? Probably something WWE doesnt want to bring too much attention to, but still.

I think he played the part once, maybe when KISS performed on Nitro to unveil the character? But for whatever reason they went with Dale Torborg after that.

And I don't recall seeing anything on Raw about it, DJ FrostyFreeze.

My favorite Bryan Adams look was when he was part of Kronik. Breaking necks and cashing cheques? Best slogan ever.

A side note: who was holding Bret during the beatdown in the Youtube video? I recognized Buff Bagwell...but who was with the mullet?

I spy Brian Adams, Curt Hennig, Konnan, Vincent, Buff Bagwell, Scott Norton, Rick Rude, and Hollywood Hogan. I'm guessing Norton's your guy.

They're over their quota on dead people they're going to acknowledge. Any more and it's just a downer, man.

If Nash does come back it is almost a given that Rey Mysterio would have to come back just so they could do anothert Human Lawn Dart segment.....of course, UT has already done that with all three members of Team X-treme....
