Bad News Brown (aka Bad News Allen, Allen Coage) is pound for pound one of the toughest pro wrestlers of all time. Bad News won a bronze medal for Judo in the 1976 Olympics before later emerging as a professional wrestler. Before competing for Vince McMahon in WWF, Bad News Brown competed around the world in Japan, Canada and other countries.
From Inoki and New Japan, the Hart Family in Stampede, south of the border to Mexico, to facing a half black body painted Roddy Piper at WrestleMania VI, Bad News Allen has seen the wrestling business like few others. Bad News Allen sat down and talked about his entire career. Allen went into stories that even we and I thought we had seen it all have never heard. Allen traveled through the back pages of his career and went into vivid detail about everything, including how Cowboy Bob Orton was almost murdered in Japan and exposing some of the truth on two of the cult stories about the 1980s, Tom Magee, WWEs lost hope, and of course the story about Andre losing his bowels IN THE RING!
Bad News lives up to his gimmick as guys like Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes and Dr. D David Shultz are buried in a manner that is nothing less than shocking. You want Bret Hart, Dynamite Kid, and Davey Boy Smith stories from their development in Stampede to their rise in the WWE, you got em here!
This is a great look back at the "decade of decadence" as Bad News made his name in three historic promotions during this time. You'll get all the dirt on New Japan, Stampede and the then-WWF. All of the icons of the '80s are talked about on here, and Bad News doesnt hold back! Lou Thesz, Billy Robinson, Riki Choshu, Hulk Hogan, Judo Gene Lebell, Kevin Sullivan, Brian Pillman,Randy Savage, Brutis Beefcake, Larry Cameron, Pat Patterson, Vader, Rick Steamboat, Tiger Jeet Singh, Abdullah the Butcher, Dynamite Kid, Bruiser Brody, Lex Luger, Owen Hart, Bret, Antonio Inoki, Hansen, Dick Murdoch, Davey Boy Smith, JYD, Randy Savage, Hercules, Chris Benoit, both Vince McMahons, Jason the Terrible, Peter Maivia, Akira Maeda, Wahoo McDaniel…these are just some of the cast of many names we give Bad News on this shoot. For fans of Stampede pro wrestling, and for fans of early New Japan, this shoot gives it all in telling stories and if that isnt enough, you'll hear about an incident between Bad News and the legendary Andre the Giant which almost resulted in legit fight over Andre's dropping the "N" bomb. What are you waiting for?! Over two and half hours of one of the most entertaining shoots ever filmed, without a dull moment to be found!
