English, who before embarking on wrestling played in the NFL, has died at the age of 54 of ‘natural causes’
The WWE Universe received sad news on Friday about the death of former NFL player Darren Drozdov, who competed as a “wrestler” between 1998 and 1999 until he suffered a serious accident in the ring that left him paralyzed. The information came from the family of the former fighter, in a statement: “We are saddened to inform you of the death of our beloved Darren this morning from natural causes. Let us feel him at this moment,” the memo said.
However, Dwayne Johnson, an American actor who also passed through the WWE Universe under the ring name ‘The Rock’, also reacted to his friend’s death. “Man, I’m so sorry to hear that one of our brothers in the ring has passed away. Darren Drozdov, aka Droz. We’ve fought together a few times. He was a great guy. Great personality and great wrestling talent. We talked a lot. We talked about football and fishing.” Sending love, strength, energy and light to your family. Rest in peace brother,” it can be read.
Darren Drozdov was a professional NFL player for the New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, and Denver Broncos. His success in the sport extended until 1999, when he fell on his head during a pre-recorded fight and broke two vertebrae in his neck. The former fighter was a quadriplegic at first, but over time he was able to regain mobility in his torso and arms.
