Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday, and that shocked the world. The longest-reigning monarch was 96 years of age at the time of her passing. The Queen’s son, Prince Charles, succeeded her as the King of England. She is mourned by many, but not by everyone around.

WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik reacted to the news of Queen’s passing as well. The former WWE Champion took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the demise of Her Majesty.


The post did not sit well with many Twitter users, some of whom dragged The Sheik for his apparent lack of respect. Fans asked the pro wrestling icon to show respect instead of trolling The Queen even in death.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reacted to The Queen’s passing as well. The Great One posted a heartfelt tribute to the monarch and said her death reminded him of his father, who passed away two years ago.
