Foley Remebers “Iron Mike” and Stardust/Amell Feud Not Over

(Mick Foley, author, commentator, WWE superstar)

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has remembered Iron Mike Sharpe in his latest Facebook post:


The wrestling world lost a good man yesterday with the passing of “Iron” Mike Sharpe. I fondly remember Iron Mike on TV – in the early 80’s, with that solid style, the forearm brace and the booming voice. I got to know Mike pretty well over the years, and I will miss that booming voice. For as loud as he was in the ring, the sound of his laughter was even louder – and I was fortunate to hear it frequently – filling up the bus on overseas trips, and echoing in locker rooms at independent shows across the U.S.

I used to love hearing stories about Iron Mike. Even in a business like pro wrestling, where colorful characters are plentiful, the Mike Sharpe stories – usually centered around his passion for cleanliness – stood out. I never got tired of them – no matter how many times old-school wrestlers told me about Mike getting locked inside buildings because of his two-hour showers, or how he put every item from his suitcase into his hotel dresser, even if he were staying for just one night. He was a big man, with a big laugh, and a big heart – and he liked to be clean.

Rest in peace Iron Mike.

WWE has recently been teasing a confrontation between Stardust and actor Stephen Amell at The Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in Secaucus, New Jersey which happens to take place during Royal Rumble weekend.

According to PWInsider, WWE is scheduled to shoot footage with Amell and Stardust at the convention.

The confrontation will reportedly lead to a Stardust vs. Amell singles match which has been in the work for a long while.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
