Bulldog Brower a legend

Dick 'The Bulldog' Brower

By GLENN COLE -- Toronto Sun

  Dick (The Bulldog) Brower, who performed as one of the toughest and meanest professional wrestlers of his era, died Monday night after a lengthy illness. He was 64.
  Brower was a regular on Maple Leaf Gardens cards in the 1960s and early 1970s. He appeared often on a weekly wrestling program produced at CFTO which featured Lord Athol Layton as host.
  Brower, a native of Delaware where he began his wrestling career in the late 1950s as the Delaware Destroyer, came to Toronto in 1961 from Calgary where he had worked alongside legendary promoter Stu Hart. Brower retired about eight years ago.
  Because of his tenacious and nasty style, which many wrestlers imitated but few ever duplicated, Brower was considered one of wrestling's greatest villains.
  He is survived by his wife Susan, daughters Martha and Katherine, son Richard and four grandchildren.
