Pro wrestler Adrian McCallum, who wrestled as Lionheart, died on Tuesday at age 36. The cause of death has not been revealed.
Powell’s POV: Lionheart was also the owner and promoter for Pro Wrestling Elite and had been working on the promotion’s eighty anniversary event for July 20. He is also the reigning ICW Champion. On behalf of our entire staff, our condolences go out to his friends and family during this difficult time.
We are heartbroken to learn of the tragic death of ICW World Heavyweight Champion, Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum. Adrian was a mainstay of ICW and British professional wrestling.
