• WWF Veteran Passed Away 14 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 43
On this day in 2007, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Crush (Real name: Brian Adams) at the age of 43 due to a painkiller overdose.
Crush became the 3rd member of Demolition in 1990 but stayed with the World Wrestling Federation after the team’s demise in 1991, using several gimmicks until he left in late 1997.
In early 1998, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he immediately joined the famous New World Order (nWo) faction.
During his final year in WCW, as well as during his very brief WWF return, Brian Adams was put in a Tag Team with Bryan Clark (fka Adam Bomb), called KroniK.
† REST IN PEACE CRUSH

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 13, 2018) – WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WCW Veteran Doc Dean (Real name: Ian Dean) at the age of 48 due to a heart attack.
Doc Dean used to be a famous wrestler in England (UK, Europe) during the 80s & 90s, often teaming up with British Wrestling Legend Robbie Brookside, who is now a coach at the WWE Performance Center.
In 1997, after a successful NJPW tour, Doc Dean was signed to a contract by Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling promotion, but despite having high hopes, he ended up being used only as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’ for his entire WCW run.
In 1998, he left the company and retired from Wrestling all together.
Ian passed away in Florida, where he lived ever since he came over to the United States.
† REST IN PEACE DOC DEAN!
