BOSTON, Aug. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kyros Law announces that the brain of former professional

wrestler Frederick Seawright (better known as Brickhouse Brown) is being studied for CTE.

Mr. Seawright died on July 29, 2018 in Jackson

Mississippi. Attorney Konstantine Kyros, an attorney for the family and Brickhouse Brown's attorney before he died stated: "Mr. Seawright had pledged to donate his brain to help other wrestlers suffering from the effects of occupational head trauma. He expressed his hope that the wrestling community would 'wake up' to the CTE crisis."

Mr. Seawright's brain will be studied by experienced researchers investigating Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy CTE in professional wrestling.

Kyros Law currently represents other families of wrestlers diagnosed with CTE including Jon Rechner (Balls Mahoney), Brain Knighton (Axl Rotten), Timothy Smith (Rex King) Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka and Harry Fujiwara (Mr. Fuji) in a lawsuit against the WWE arguing that the WWE should take care of wrestlers with CTE. Kyros Law also recently coordinated the CTE study of wrestler Chuck Williams (Rockin Rebel) in a tragic Murder-Suicide.

The lawsuit filed against the WWE by Kyros Law alleges that the WWE is deliberately concealing the CTE crisis in professional wrestling, in part, by not funding studies of deceased wrestlers for CTE because it wants to evade financial responsibility for helping warn and treat those at risk for the condition.
