Darren Drozdov, a former defensive tackle for the Denver Broncos, passed away on June 30 at the age of 54. Drozdov played quarterback and wide receiver for the Maryland Terrapins in college football because he had a lifelong passion for the game.
He was signed as a defensive tackle by the Denver Broncos in 1993 following an outstanding collegiate career. After passing of the former wrestler, many fans are searching for his cause of death.
We will talk about his passing and the reason behind it, in the next paragraph.
Darren Drozdov Cause of Death
Darren Drozdov reportedly passed away from natural causes, and admirers quickly paid their respects to the late footballer on social media.
After a brief time in the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the NFL, Drozdov switched industries to pursue professional wrestling. Prior to going to the WWF (now WWE) in 1998, he competed in the ECW. Drozdov’s pro wrestling career was regrettably cut short by an injury. He was rendered quadriplegic in 1999 after a match-related severe spinal cord injury.

“He would not want anyone to be sad at this moment and would want this to be a celebration of his life, to be remembered for all the great things that he accomplished, the fun, the laughter, the great memories he shared with everyone.”
