One More WWE Wrestler Goes Down: Brian 'Crush' Adams Found Dead

Another WWE wrestler tragedy

FOXNews reports:

The Web site announced Monday that wrestler Brian Adams — known as "Crush" — was found dead, less than two months after the murder-suicide of professional wrestler Chris Benoit and his family.

Tampa police told FOX News that Adams' wife found him unconscious in bed and called 911. He was pronounced dead in the home when medics could not revive him.

According to biographical listings at and, along with wrestlers "Ax" and "Smash," Adams was part of the face-painting, leather strap-wearing tag-team known as "Demolition."

Adams was arrested in 1994 on steroid possession and gun charges. He was later acquitted of the drug charges, the sites reported.

Adams was forced to retire from wrestling in 2003 after he injured his spine in a match.
