On this day in 2007, we lost Old School WWF Legend “Sensational” Sherri Martel (Real name: Sherri Russell) at the age of 49 due to a drug overdose.
During her career Sherri most famously worked for the World Wrestling Federation (1987-1993) and Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1994-1997), but also appeared in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (1993-1994) and Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (1985-1987).
She wasn’t only a former WWF Women’s Champion, but is also still considered one of the greatest female managers / valets of all time.
