Former WCW Wrestler Brad Armstrong Passes Away

The official WWE website reports that Brad Armstrong, who most notably competed for the National Wrestling Alliance and World Championship Wrestling throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and briefly for WWE in 2006, was found dead in his home this morning. He was 51-years-old.

Their message states, “WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of Brad Armstrong, 51, one of four sons of “Bullet” Bob Armstrong. Brad Armstrong last participated in the ring for the ECW brand in 2006. WWE understands that Brad saw his physician last week for a medical issue and was found unresponsive this morning. WWE extends its sincerest condolences to the entire Armstrong family.”

Brad is the brother of WWE referee Scott Armstrong and producer Brian “Road Dogg” James. The brothers, as well as Steve, who wrestled for WWE in 1992 as Lance Cassidy, inducted “Bullet” Bob Armstrong into the WWE Hall of Fame last year.

    No, Al Snow was LEIF Cassidy. That was in 95/96. LANCE Cassidy was a few years before that, and an Armstrong.

    But WOW, I was never a big fan of the guy but my eyes bugged out when I read this headline. Poor guy had to portray the awful cheesy character of Arachnaman in WCW; a yellow and blue Spider-man knockoff. But he did pretty well as himself as the Light Heavyweight Champion in the early 90’s. That’s a shame to hear.

    Brad was a great talent. Loved him during his NWA days. Thoughts and prayers to the family. R.I.P. Brad.

    It’s always hard to hear about a wrestler passing, espically such a talented one like Brad. The Armstrong’s have always been one of the most underrated families in wrestling, if you ask me. R.I.P Brad

    Leif Cassidy was Al Snow. Lance Cassidy was not around for a long time in WWF.
