We regret to inform you of the passing of independent wrestler Jaysin Strife, who had previously competed on WWE 205 Live and AEW Dark. He was 37 at the time.
Strife’s brother noted that he was battling a long illness. Below is what he wrote:
“They say every time a bell rings a Strife gets his wings… today 12-29-22 @ 9:55 pm the world lost an icon. After a long intense battle, he finally couldn’t kick out anymore.
His impact in and out of the ring has been felt by us all and the love shown is not lost on the family. Thank you all for your thoughts and kind words. But more importantly, your prayers.
At the end Nate gave his life to Christ giving our family the peace of knowing he’s joining his beloved Grandma Pat… (The mint chip ice cream and cookies are waiting bro!)
Thank you all for all your support…
Below are tweets from some wrestling stars about Strife’s death:
Mike Bennett: “You had a profound impact on me in the short amount of time we knew each other. I know there is a lesson in all of this but right now I just want to send all my love to his friends and family. Nothing in life is guaranteed. Love your people and tell them you love them.”
Adam Pearce: “Godspeed, Jaysin Strife. Thank you for always doing it the right way. I never saw you treat anybody with anything other than respect, myself included. I’m glad that we met and worked together, and I’m so glad we got to catch up a couple of weeks ago. Rest well, my brother. ”
Jeremy Wyatt: “Walked back through the curtain after my match and found out @JaysinStrife just passed away… I’ve been wrestling Strife since 2005. Easily one of my favorite opponents. We always brought out the best in each other. Going to miss you, buddy. RIP”
