WWE's Crush Found Dead

WWE's Crush Found Dead
Mon Aug 13, 3:50 PM

Professional wrestling has been dealt another unexpected blow.

Former World Wrestling Entertainment star Brian "Crush" Adams was found dead Monday in his Florida home, according to the Tampa Police Department.

Adams' wife called 911 after discovering her husband in bed unconscious and not breathing, but paramedics were unable to revive the 43-year-old World Tag Team champ, who retired from competitive wrestling in 2003 after suffering a spinal injury.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday to determine the cause of death and authorities and an investigation is underway. The police's incident report states that there were no visible injuries on Adams' body.

E! Online "I'm still in a state of shock right now," Ron Simmons, a retired pro and current WWE Raw personality, said in a posting on WWE.com. "He and I go way back and have worked together for years. He was a very good friend of mine. I still don't want to believe it. I'm just saddened by it and I just want to wish his family well."

Adams, who rose to fame in the early 1990s as a member of the famed Demolition trio, left the WWE in 2001 to try his fists at boxing, but returned to wrestling after a shoulder injury forced him out of the ring before his first professional fight.

The WrestleMania vet's death comes barely a month and a half after WWE superstar Chris Benoit murdered his wife and child in their Georgia home and then hanged himself.

A subsequent autopsy showed an elevated level of testosterone in Benoit's body, which indicated he had been injecting steroids before his death, but there was no sign that he had been abusing them to the extent that would have caused so-called 'roid rage.
I wonder if his death will be due to any steroid use in his lifetime...

1 down the rest to go I say. >.> Really steroids must have to be blamed plus all the deadly combinations of other drugs they're using to get by day to day. Can't really deny thats whats causing it.

It seems a lot of the wrestlers die these days

Everybody blames steroids because they want the cause to be steroids. Nobody seems to think that Chris Benoit might've just been fucked up in the head. Maybe this Crush guy swallowed a bunch of pills. It doesn't have to be fucking steroids.

Probably because Benoit did take steroids and that's the kind of shit it can do to you.

Wow, I remember him. He was a good entertainer.

An update on this story, and the cause of death is still unknown.


Autopsy Fails to Show How Wrestler Died

TAMPA, Fla. - An autopsy on pro wrestler Brian "Crush" Adams failed to show a specific cause of death. The Hillsborough County medical examiner's office said Tuesday it will now conduct tissue and toxicology tests to try to determine what killed the 44-year-old wrestler.

A completed autopsy report is expected in six to eight weeks.

Adams wasn't breathing when his wife found him unconscious in their Tampa home Monday. His body showed no visible signs of injury and foul play was not suspected, police said.

Adams, a former world tag team champion, last performed for the World Wrestling Federation in 2001 and served intermittently on the roster beginning in 1990, World Wrestling Entertainment said.

In 2001, Adams left the WWE, formerly the WWF. He competed in Japan and then attempted a career in boxing, the WWE said. He wrestled his last match in January 2003 when a spinal injury forced him into retirement.

Adams' death comes less than two months after pro wrestler Chris Benoit killed his wife and son before hanging himself on the cable of a weight machine in his Georgia home. Prescription anabolic steroids were found in the family's home, raising questions about whether the drugs played a role in the killings.

He probably had a brain hemorrhage and heart failure and heart attack probably. >.> And with drugs and all that crap it probably caused it.

I'm with Kaf, I remember him from my wrestling watching days. Gosh these deaths are bothersome.
