Ex-Pro Wrestling Champ Dies

TAMPA, FLA. (AP) -- A former pro wrestler is dead and authorities aren't sure what killed him.

Brian "Crush" Adams was found unconscious in his home in Tampa, Florida, and rescue workers called by Adams' wife couldn't revive him.

Police say there were no visible signs of injury and they don't think foul play was involved. They're awaiting autopsy results.

Adams was 44 and a former world tag team champion, who last performed for what is now known as World Wrestling Entertainment in 2001. His death comes less than two months after pro wrestler Chris Benoit killed his wife and son before hanging himself on the cable of a weight machine in his Georgia home.
