Nine days after it was initially annoinced that he passed away,  Brickhouse Brown, best known for his wrestling time in Memphis, quietly passed away while under hospice care following a long battle with cancer:

Brown, real name Frederick Seawright, was 57 years old at the time of his passing.   Brown first broke into the business wrestling for Joe Blanchard in Texas, where he basically received on the job training from Terry Funk and others.  

Brown worked for a number of different territories in the '80s and early '90s, including the AWA and Continental, but he was best known for his different runs in Memphis over the years, where he worked for the CWA and the USWA, feuding with Robert Fuller, Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee, among others.   He held the Continental Heavyweight Championship andd the USWA TV title, among other belts. 

Brown was extremely charismatic and ended up starring in a very popular shoot interview series for where he discussed stories from his careers and all sorts of crazy conspiracy stories surrounding pro wrestling that helped make him a cult figure to a new generation of fans.

Brown worked regularly on independent events until he became ill.

On behalf of everyone associated with, we'd like to express our deepest condolences to Brown's family, friends and fans
