Frederick Seawright, better known as Brickhouse Brown, was mostly a well-established heel on the independent scene during the 80’s and 90’s and wrestled for promotions all over the country. One of his more famous feuds involved one of his few stints as a face. Villainous manager, Robert Fuller, gifted Brown with a watermelon during a promo and beat him senselessly with a strap.
He is also well-known in later years for his infamous shoot interviews with RF Video and others. He pulled no punches during these interviews and he was quite colorful in his expressions throughout.
In April 2017, Brown said he was in stage 4 prostate cancer. A month later, he said the cancer had moved to his brain and that the treatment that compromised his vision and reduced his weight to 150 lb. Several Southern promotions held benefit shows to help pay his medical bills, and the Cauliflower Alley Club’s Benevolent Fund helped him pay his rent. He ultimately succumbed to the cancer earlier today. His funeral will take place in Florida on August 11, which would’ve been his 58th birthday.
Botch Take: Wow. I used to see him when I was a kid on the Indies. He had much charisma and was a very good worker when he was given the chance to be. Of course, we send our condolences to his family and friends. We’re doing a lot of that today…
