Though Brad competed mainly in the mid card in the Crocket NWA, he was considered a great wrestler and probably the most athletic of all his brothers. Brad had a long run in the NWA even into the WCW years where he had reign as cruiserweight champion. Brad also competed under a mask in WCW both as “Badstreet” as a member of the Freebirds, and as “Arachnaman” in 1991. Armstrong also stayed with WCW throughout the Nitro years and had many great matches during the time.
In 2006 Brad was hired by WWE to be an agent and part time wrestler in their version of ECW and appeared on TV as an announcer during that period. Brad’s last big spotlight was when he took part in inducing his father Bullet Bob into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.
Our condolences to the Armstrong family. In honor of his career, here is a great match from Slamboree ’96 as Brad Armstrong takes on Dean Malenko for the WCW Cruiserweight Title:
