UK Wrestler Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum Passes Away

ICW has confirmed the tragic passing of Adrian McCallum, better known as Lionheart, at the age of 36. The popular UK independent wrestler made a name for himself with both Preston City Wrestling and Insane Championship Wrestling, making his debut back in 2007 for the latter. Lionheart was the ICW World Heavyweight Champion at the time of his death, and 12 hours or so prior to the news breaking, he sent out one final message to his followers that can be seen below.

A number of wrestlers and fans have paid tribute to Lionheart on social media in the last few hours. From all of us here at WrestleZone, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.
