On June 7, 2023, at the age of 81 years old, the Iron Sheik left this world. A cause of death was not disclosed at the time, but it appears to have emerged now.
Iron Sheik was a legend in WWE. It was the Hall of Famer’s spectacular feud with Hulk Hogan that provided the backdrop for some of the company’s most iconic moments.
The death of the legend was reported by the legendary journalist Bill Apter. He frequently engaged in high-profile feuds, and his loss to Hogan at Madison Square Garden in January 1984 is often regarded as the beginning of Hulkamania.
Do you know that supermodel Gigi Hadid has recently been in trouble with the law again? During a customs inspection in the Cayman Islands, authorities allegedly discovered marijuana in her luggage, leading to accusations of drug possession.
This incident has been compared to a 2015 controversy in which Hadid was criticized for a cocaine-related incident at Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Customs officials allegedly discovered marijuana and associated items in their bags, which led to their arrest on suspicion of marijuana importation:
He captured the WWE World Heavyweight Championship once and the Tag Team Championship once with Nikolai Volkoff. In 2005, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
According to a report by TMZ, they obtained The Iron Sheik’s death certificate. Cardiac arrest was listed as the cause of death on the death certificate.
Before his departure, the celebrity was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and hypertension, and the manner of his death was ruled natural. As an industry legend who embodied his character and his extreme loathing for Hulk Hogan, the star is sorely missed.
