Frank Goodish, a 6'8" giant best known as Bruiser Brody, wrestled in the NWA, the AWA, the WWWF and many other promotions during the territory days of the 70s and 80s.
In 1988 Brody traveled to Puerto Rico for a show on July 16 at Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium in Bayamón. In the locker room before the show he was stabbed by a wrestler named Invader (real name José González). Brody died at the hospital early the next morning.
González was charged with the murder and claimed self-defense. In spite of the controversy surrounding his motives for killing Brody, González was acquitted after a trial in Puerto Rico the following year.
