Lionheart, real name Adrian McCallum, was the reigning ICW Champion at the time of his passing, having defeated Jackie Polo to capture the belt in the main event of ICW Fear & Loathing XI in December.
The 17-year veteran was a regular for ICW, PCW and SWA in recent years, as well as his own promotion Pro Wrestling Elite.
Previously he had wrestled for several major companies, including Ring Of Honor, TNA and 1PW, in addition to wrestling a WWE dark match in Liverpool in 2011.
There are no further details available about McCallum’s passing at this time.
WrestleTalk would like to extend its sincere condolences to McCallum’s family and friends at this difficult time.
