Mick Foley Remembers "Iron Mike" Sharpe

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.
