On today’s episode of The Taz Show, Taz will discuss the classic matchup between Abdullah The Butcher and Bruiser Brody which aired from Japan on April 10th, 1981 as part of the Champions Carnival tournament.
Taz points out that that Abdullah and Brody didn’t need the NWA or WWE “machine” to get over. They got over huge all over the world by constantly travelling to different territories and bringing their aggressive style with them wherever they went. Whether it be Japan, Puerto Rico, or the United States, these two men had an amazing rivalry throughout the years, and we rarely see this type of rivalry today.
He mentions that Abdullah and Brody were very different looking individuals, but neither of them look like regular people who work in an office building. They were both very unique looking people and if you saw either of them in an airport, you’d know they were stars of some kind.
Braun Strowman is one of the only competitors in WWE today that resembles this type of old-school character. He’s similar to Brody and Abdullah in the sense that if you see him walking towards you in public you’d probably turn and walk the other way. He has a tremendous mystique about him, and there’s no doubt that this is a person you wouldn’t want to mess with.
