Professional wrestling career

Brittany Brown & Killer Kowalski strike a pose at the Cauliflower Alley Club Convention.

In 1985, Brown began her training to become a professional wrestler at The Fabulous Moolah's Girl Pro Wrestling School in Columbia, South Carolina under the direct training of The Fabulous Moolah and Donna Christanello. She then trained under Killer Kowalski and was the Ladies Champion of Kowalski's International Wrestling Federation for well over a decade. Brown eventually became one of Kowalski's trainers to both male and female students at his school outside of Boston, Massachusetts. During the same time she was the IWF Ladies Champion, she was also the Ladies Champion of the National Wrestling Alliance and a number of independent promotions including Empire Pro Wrestling, National Wrestling Federation, World Wrestling Alliance and the New England Wrestling Federation. She was known as The Boston Bad Girl in many circles, due to her 'in ring' villainous tactics.

In 1994, Brown was honored by the Cauliflower Alley Club along with other female inductees Candi Devine, Sherri Martel, Kitty Adams, and Susan Green. She and the other Ladies received their award on the same stage with such male legends as Pedro Morales and Gorilla Monsoon. She won Vermont Wrestler of the Year on at least three occasions and was listed in the Top Ten Best Best Pro Ladies Worldwide in one of the highly respected Japanese publications Nippon Sports Mook in 1998.. Brown has received several awards and honors, including being honored by Moolah's LIWA in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1996 receiving a Plaque.

Brown served as the first ever Woman elected to the Board of Directors of the Cauliflower Alley Club in California and was also on the Board of Directors of the Ladies International Wrestling Association (LIWA) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She and a former partner began a New England-based independent wrestling promotion called the World Wrestling Alliance in 1999. Among it's alumni are The Hardy Boyz, Kurt Angle, Edge, Steven Richards, A-Train and many other WWE and WWF Stars. Former WWF veteran Danny Davis as well as WWE Tough Enough finalists Danny (Tough Enough 2), Jonah (Tough Enough 3) and Taylor Matheny have also made many appearances in the promotion.[1]

On February 27, 1998, Brown beat number one contender Brandi Alexander and retained her NWA New Jersey Championship Title at the Third Annual Eddie Gilbert Memorial Brawl at the Airport Radisson Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[2][3] The Fabulous Moolah was in Brown's corner while Fred The Elephant Boy from The Howard Stern Show was at ringside with Alexander.[4]
