World Wrestling Entertainment is saddened by the loss of Brian Adams, also formerly known as Crush, who has been found dead today. Former colleagues D Lo Brown, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ron Simmons and Sgt. Slaughter have all taken the time to speak with WWE.com on the loss of their fallen friend.

D Lo Brown: I'll always remember his sense of humor and his attitude. He was a funny guy, who always wanted to make everybody laugh and was serious when it came to this business. It's such a sad and tragic loss for this industry. The last time I talked to him was about a year and a half to two years ago when we did a show in Hawaii and we sat down to have a couple drinks together. In wrestling, it's weird; you can go 5-years without talking to some one and then all of a sudden you can see them again and talk like you just saw them last night. So, we just picked up right where we left off the last time we talked and just had great conversation. We didn't skip a beat… that was his personality, his mentality and the way he was. He's a good guy and I love him to death.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan: I knew Brian pretty well. He came to play in my golf tournament a few times in Florida. He was a big, impressive, young guy… It's such a shock that he's gone. He was one of those guys that never seemed to really get the big break, but had all of the talent and all of the skills to do it. It's a shock.

Ron Simmons: I'm still in a state of shock right now. He and I go way back and have worked together for years. He was a very good friend of mine. I still don't want to believe it. I'm just saddened by it and I just want to wish his family well. I am just very, very upset about this because it hits close to home. He was a good friend, ya know?

Sgt. Slaughter: It was a real sad moment when I heard that this happened because Brian Adams was really good talent and had a great future in this business. But [I'll never forget that] he's the one who introduced me to Sushi in Guam and I never thought that I'd eat raw fish, but he's the one who showed me what to look for and how to eat it. I also appreciate that he put me on a workout regimen and I started working out a lot harder than I had before and it really helped my career going into WrestleMania VII. He was just a good guy who had a big heart. It's just a real sad day for wrestling fans throughout the world.
