the last book I ever read (David Shoemaker's The Squared Circle, excerpt six)

from The Squared Circle: Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling by David Shoemaker:

Not long before Bruiser Brody was killed in 1988, he gave a no-holds-barred interview on the state of wrestling and what goes on behind the scenes. He talked at length about his days producing the WCCW telecast. After the interviewer asked if anybody outside the business knew that he had done that, Brody paused, mild consternation creasing his grotesquely scarred forehead. “I don’t think it’s good that anybody knows that I produced that show,” he said. And then, suddenly remembering that he had said his real name earlier in the conversation: “I don’t think it’s good that anybody knows I’m Frank Goodish.”
