The WWF had some fantastic job guys (dudes who basically never won a match) back in the 80s and 90s. If I had to pick a favourite, Iron Mike Sharpe would be near the top of my list. The constant yelling and screaming, the arm injury that never seemed to get any better, the times they’d let him talk…Canada’s Greatest Athlete was usually good for some entertainment.
Sadly, he died over the weekend after having been ill for several years. He was 64. Here’s a nice look back at his career, which consisted of a lot more than just losing on TV every week.
