Brian Adams, Crush of WWF Tag Team Demolition, Dies at 43

The professional wrestler Brian Adams, best known as Crush in the tag team Demolition, has died at the age of 43, the WWE reported on its web site.

For those who aren't familiar with his work, here's a clip of Crush in action with Demolition:


The WWE says "details are unknown" about how Adams died.

This comes at the worst possible time for WWE head Vince McMahon and the pro wrestling industry, which is under increased scrutiny as a result of the Chris Benoit murder-suicide. There will no doubt be questions about whether steroids played any role in Adams' death. According to Adams' IMDB page, he was arrested on drug and weapons offenses in 1994 for carrying steroids and a stun gun. He was later acquitted of the drug charges.

'No Visible Signs of Injuries' in Death of Wrestler Brian Adams, Crush of Demolition

Professional wrestler Brian Adams, known as Crush of Demolition, was found dead today in Tampa, Florida. No cause of death has been given, but TMZ has the incident report filed by the Tampa Police Department. The full, one-paragraph report reads as follows:

Brian Adams was found by his wife unconscious in bed not breathing. She called 911 and Fire Rescue responded. Fire Rescue could not revive him and he was declared dead at the scene. The Medical Examiner's Office responded and transported the body to their office to be examined. The cause of death is unknown at this time. There were no visible signs of injuries.

The report lists Adams as 44 years of age, but other sources have put his age at 43. No matter the cause of death, whether it's fair or not, the professional wrestling industry will almost certainly be blamed for the sudden death of another relatively young retired wrestler.
