Frederick Seawright, better known as Brickhouse Brown, sadly passed away earlier today.
Brown traveled the territories during the 80’s and 90’s, capturing multiple heavyweight titles. Brown even defeated Memphis legend Jerry “The King” Lawler only three months after he debuted with the Championship Wrestling Association to win the AWA Southern Heavyweight Championship.
While he did appear a few times for the World Wrestling Federation, he only performed as an enhancement talent. However, his career outside of the WWF was what cemented him as a legend in the business, winning championships in NWA Mid-South, Southeastern Championship Wrestling, and World Class Championship Wrestling among others.
In 2017, Brown announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, and by May of this year, it had spread to his brain.
There were early reports of Brown passing away back on July 20 from prostate cancer, but this was incorrect. However, after a long battle, Brickhouse Brown passed away on July 29. He was 57.
We here at Wrestling-Edge would like to send his family our deepest condolences in these difficult times.
