Athlete

Brian Keith Adams was a professional wrestler. Adams is well known for his time with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), under the ring name Crush, and for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) under his real name Brian Adams. He was a two-time WCW World Tag Team Champion and a one-time WWF Tag Team Champion, among other accomplishments. He was a challenger for various singles titles in the WWF and WCW, including the WWF Championship. In 2002, he briefly tried a career in boxing until he was forced to retire due to back and shoulder injuries.

After a brief stint in jail, Adams was brought back to the WWF with a new biker look at the beginning of the Monday Night Wars, with his real-life incarceration being referenced as part of a storyline on Raw. He made his surprise return to WWF on the August 12, 1996 episode of Monday Night Raw, with Clarence Mason, his (kayfabe) lawyer as his manager. He defeated Savio Vega with a full nelson and began using the heart punch as his new finishing move. At Survivor Series, Crush was paired with Goldust, Jerry Lawler, and Hunter Hearst Helmsley against Marc Mero, Jake Roberts, Rocky Maivia, and Barry Windham in a Survivor Series match. Crush's team was on the losing end. In the fall of 1996, Crush began a rivalry with Vega, during which, he and Clarence Mason joined Nation of Domination (NOD) under the leadership of Faarooq, another client of Mason.
