Death does truly come in threes and this is the first of what is sure to be a few more over the coming days. The professional wrestling world is saddened by the news of the passing of “Iron” Mike Sharpe.
Sharpe spent the final part of his career with the WWF from 1983-1995. Before going to the company, he was longtime mainstay in the NWA, winning the Mid-America Heavyweight Championship once and the Pacific Coast Heavyweight Championship three times.
Sharpe may forever be known as a “jobber icon”, meaning he never really amounted to much on the big stage of professional wrestling, but he will surely be missed by all. His career stretched 18 years, beginning in 1977 with NWA in Vancouver, where he grew up and was trained by the legendary Dewey Robinson.
