BRUISER BRODY: "I'll never find out!"- once when asked what it felt like to lose, as quoted in The Pictorial History of Wrestling: The Good The Bad and The Ugly by Bert Randolph Sugar and George Napolitano.

Dave Meltzer: "Bruiser Brody is another one. He was in some of the great matches of all time, but he was also in some of the worst matches of all time when he was in the mood."- commenting on the AWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkel (w/Bobby "The Brain" Heenan)-Bruiser Brody match on Volume 1: Busted Open! of the Wrestling Gold DVD series.

Frank Donald Goodish (1946-1988) was an American football player and Professional Wrestler from Detroit, MI under the name Bruiser Brody. He competed throughout the world, particularly in World Class Championship Wrestling in Dallas, TX, the American Wrestling Association, the St. Louis Wrestling Club, All Japan Pro Wrestling, and the World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico. Among his achievements were holding the NWA International Heavyweight Title, which later became part of All Japan's Triple Crown Heavyweight Title, holding the All Japan PWF Tag Team Title with his good friend Stan Hansen, holding the NWA American (World Class) Heavyweight Title four times and holding the NWA Central States (Kansas City) Heavyweight Title. While working for the WWC, wrestler Jose Gonzales, aka Invader #1, murdered Brody by stabbing him to death in the shower after a match on July 17, 1988. He was tried in a Puerto Rican court and was acquitted on the grounds of self-defense.
