In what's turned out to be one of the saddest days for pro wrestling fans in recent months, three deaths have rocked the world of professional wrestling: Nikolai Volkoff, Brian Christopher, and Memphis Wrestling legend Brickhouse Brown.

Brown, real name Frederick Seawright, died at the age of 57 earlier this morning, finally ending his battle with cancer. Many might recall that recent reports had him passing away on July 20th, but the Wrestling Observer reports that he was actually still alive, although he had flatlined while in hospice care.

Brown's career was made in the Memphis territories, where he was a top heel during the '80s and '90s, with his career also taking him to the AWA and WCCW. Among the titles Brown held were the USWA Television Championship (1x), the USWA World Tag Team Championship (3x), and the NWA Mid-South Heavyweight Championship (1x).

Brown was active until 2017, when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He's a true black rasslin' legend, and will be missed. Rest in power, Brickhouse Brown.
