As you have all seen and read via social media, last week the one and only Kris Travis had the sad news given to him that he would have to retire from the world of professional wrestling due to injury. This is very unfortunate as Kris has had a tough 12 months battling back from stomach cancer with the support from his friends, family and fans. He will be missed and remembered for all the amazing matches he’s had wrestling for all the superb companies across the UK including dark matches for TNA and WWE. We love you and wish you all the best with your future endeavours, hopefully something wrestling related.
