We are very sad to learn about the passing of pro wrestling legend Adrian Street. The pro wrestling veteran from the United Kingdom was 82-years-old at the time of his passing. His cause of death has not been made public at this time.

Adrian Street was born on December 5th, 1940, and he saw so much in his storied career in the ring. Street gained fame in the wrestling world for his flamboyant and androgynous persona, challenging traditional stereotypes. Throughout his career, he displayed remarkable in-ring skills and unique character work, captivating audiences worldwide. Street’s career spanned several decades, leaving a lasting impact on the sport with his innovative approach to wrestling and showmanship.

Sadly, Adrian Street, the iconic figure known for his flamboyant wrestling style, has passed away at the age of 82 in Wales, United Kingdom. A true master of his craft, ‘The Sadist in Sequins’ challenged traditional portrayals of masculinity that were prevalent in 70s and 80s wrestling.

Born in a Welsh mining town, Street defied expectations and pursued a path in the spotlight, leaving behind his father’s occupation. His wife, Miss Linda, described him as the kindest and most loving man one could ever meet.


At a young age, Street ventured to London and debuted as Kid Tarzan Jonathan in 1957, but later embraced the persona of “Exotic” Adrian Street, complete with extravagant ring attire and an effeminate personality. Throughout his career, he traveled the world and encountered his future wife, Miss Linda, who was also a wrestler known as Blackfoot Sue.

In 2019, WWE honored Street’s remarkable career with the documentary ‘Adrian Street: Imagine What I Could Do to You.’ The tributes for Adrian Street’s memory are certain to continue at this rate.
