-Much of Hussein's private life is a mystery, so some information here is speculation.
-Original name may have been Mike Harmon or Mike Barber. He legally changed his name to Arman Hussein
to reflect his conversion to Islam. His names are frequently misspelled as "Armand" or "Hussien"
-Billed from the Republic of Sudan. Might actually from Dallas, TX although some sources reflect a home state of Alabama.
-Billed as a graduate of Ox
ford University. This is doubtful.
-Liked to impersonate police officers. He was arrested in 1973 while doing this as a joke on a fellow wrestler.
-Never held a valid driver's license. Couldn't pass the written test.
-Retired from in-ring competition in the early 1980s due to injuries suffered in a car wreck. He told everyone that Roddy Piper
and Jos LeDuc injured him in the ring.
-Completely retired from the sport by the late 1980s.
-Passed away around New Year's Day, 2008 from undisclosed causes.
