Al-Kaissie started his professional wrestling career in 1959 under the name Billy White Wolf, a Native American character.

He later made his name with New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the 70s before joining the WWE in 1990.

Al-Kaissie was most commonly known as acting as Sgt. Slaughter's manager.

He competed at SummerSlam 1991 with Slaughter and Col. Mustafa in a Handicap match with Sid Justice as special guest referee against Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior.

Al-Kaissie also became the first Iraqi as well as Arab to compete in a WWE ring.

After retiring from wrestling, he managed his own company – the World All-Star Wrestling Alliance – which he co-owned with Ken Patera.

In 2005, his memoir "The Sheik of Baghdad: Tales of Celebrity and Terror from Pro Wrestling's General Adnan" was published.
