Wrestling community mourns the death of independent promoter Chris ‘Chandler Biggins’ Bryan

In all honesty, I don’t know much about Chris Bryan and didn’t have much exposure to Cleveland’s Absolutely Intense Wrestling (AIW), the company he promoted as Chandler Biggins. But his passing Monday night (June 19) after months of hospitalization for a bacterial infection has a lot of people in the business publicly sharing their grief and commenting on his legacy, and we here at Cageside Seats wanted to acknowledge that and send our condolences to his friends, family and everyone who is hurting today after learning of his passing.

PWInsider has a nice obituary here. Following are a sample of the remembrances and thoughts you can find from Bryan’s colleagues on social media:

Rest in Peace, sir.

UPDATE: Kevin Owens has written a longer tribute to his friend:
