I am deeply saddened to hear that Kristopher Travis has passed away.

It was about a year ago that Kris was brought to my attention by a Brand member in the UK, who told me his story of heart and courage, as Kris overcame cancer and was preparing to make a comeback to the ring in the sport he loved so much. Prior to that comeback I had the absolute honor and privilege of interviewing Kris and I absolutely fell in love with him and his spirit. Unfortunately, after that comeback . . . Kris’ cancer returned. I had kept in touch with him ever since, and just because of his heart, and soul and his will—in my mind I knew he would overcome the crippling disease again. But, I was informed this morning . . . that he didn’t.

I’m heart broken because I just didn’t expect this. Kris’ courage and will to live was something that absolutely inspired me, it made me understand how lucky I was and how grateful I should be for everything that I have in my life. Kris was a real life hero.

I love you Kris, I will never forget the way you touched my life. I know you are in a much peaceful place right now.

God be with you and bless you, my friend

    I lost my Mum to cancer so I know first hand about this horrible disease. Kris was someone with an amazing amount of courage and strength. He’ll be missed!

    The wrestling business has lost another great one.
