Independent American wrestling superstar Danny Havoc has tragically passed on at the age of 45. Grant Berkland, best known Havoc to his fans is best remembered from his days in Game Changer Wrestling and Combat Zone Wrestling.
His death was confirmed in an emotional tweet by Game Changer Wrestling on Monday, June 1. The outfit mourned Havoc as ‘an incredibly talented, intelligent, caring and genuine person.’ “With a broken heart, the GCW family mourns the loss of Grant Berkland aka Danny Havoc,” Game Changer Wrestling posted.
“He was also an elite performer that entertained a generation of fans & inspired a generation of aspiring performers,” the independent professional wrestling promotion added. Several WWE and AEW stars have since taken to social media to pay tribute to the fallen wrestler who won multiple belts across a number of promotions. According to SunSport, his death came just two months after that of his wife, Brianne Morrow, who died of heart failure earlier in April.
It has been a few grim weeks for the wrestling industry with a number of shock deaths including that of Shad Gaspard who died while swimming. Gaspard was said to have been caught up in a strong current off Venice Beach in California during a swim with his son and a group of others. His body was recovered a day later by the US Coast Guard.
