Adrian 'Lionheart' McCallum passes away at 36 years old


Adrian McCallum, best known as Lionheart on the UK independent scene, has passed away at the age of 36.

There are no current details on his death at this time.

“We are heartbroken to learn of the tragic death of ICW World Heavyweight Champion, Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum,” ICW wrote on their Twitter page. “Adrian was a mainstay of ICW and British professional wrestling. Most importantly, he was our friend. His passing leaves a huge hole in the lives of those who knew him. Please respect his family’s privacy at this time.”

McCallum started wrestling in 2002, and by 2007 had made his debut for ICW, wrestling there regularly for the rest of his career. He defeated Alexander Dean for ICW last weekend.

At a Preston City Wrestling show in 2014, Lionheart broke his neck in two places after landing badly following a Styles Clash by AJ Styles. He returned to wrestling a year later.
