Allen Coage, known in wrestling as Bad News Allen and Bad News Brown, has passed away at age 63. Coage passed away early yesterday morning in Calgary Alberta Canada at Rockyview Hospital after being rushed there following chest pains. Three weeks ago, Coage had undergone hip replacement surgery.

A bronze medal winner in judo at the 1976 Olympics, Coage was a star for Stu Hart's Stampede promotion in Calgary and also worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling. He is probably best known for his run in the WWF in the late 1980's as Bad News Brown, where he feuded with Bret Hart in Hart's first feud as a singles competitor in the company. They were the last two men in the WrestleMania IV Battle Royal. Brown main evented shows against Hulk Hogan and also worked against Roddy Piper, with the two wrestling at Wrestlemania VI in the infamous match where Roddy Piper painted his body half-black.

Coage had been working as a security guard in recent years. He had recently signed a deal with Jakks Pacific for a WWE Classic Superstar action figure and was scheduled to appear on 4/28 at the Legends of the Ring convention in New Jersey. I just read an interview with him on PW Insider.com just last week.
