Brad Armstrong, AKA No Limit Soldier "B.A."
If there were two industries making all-time record profits in the late-90s, they were professional wrestling and the music business. Of course, it was only a matter of time before these thriving entities collided. One such instance was No Limit head-honcho Master P inking a deal to perform as part of Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling. While P himself didn't intend to body slam anybody, his presence was to be a managerial figure for a group of wrestlers he dubbed "The No Limit Soliders," including veteran wrestler Brad Armstrong who passed away this month to unknown causes at the age of 50.
Armstrong, rechristened in the No Limit Soliders as "B.A.," was a second-generation wrestler who had experience performing all over the world. His reputation as a good hand to have in the ring (as well as Turner executives wanting at least one caucasian in the group) lead to WCW aligning him with P to ensure the rapper's endeavors in the squared circle (where he was paid $200,000 per appearance) went smoothly.More »
