The Iron Sheik was an awesome dude. I remember sitting in my pj's eating cereal watching him and hacksaw jim duggan fight it out in the WWF back in the day. IRL they were actually pretty good friends and used to party together (that was until they got pulled over for being under the influence of drugs on the way to an event, oops!)

Paul Rubens AKA "Pee Wee Herman"

https://www.fox29.com/news/pee-wee-herman-star-paul-reubens-loses-battle-to-cancer-at-70

Yeah this one was bad timing. I just showed my daughter Buffy the Vampire Slayer and she yelled at the TV "Why won't he just die!" The urge to not jokingly blame her is strong.

The Pee Wee movies were a big part of my childhood. I didn't care much for the show. It seemed like everything he did outside of his PW persona was excellent - his role in Gotham was amazing.

He lived to 99

It was as close to 100 as you can get without going over.

If you don't know who he was, you missed out on some quality comedy growing up. RIP.
