CZW and GCW wrestler Danny Havoc passes away


Danny Havoc, best remembered for his runs in both Combat Zone Wrestling and Game Changer Wrestling, has passed away.

GCW posted the following tonight on their Twitter page: “With a broken heart, the GCW family  mourns the loss of Grant Berkland aka Danny Havoc. Danny was an incredibly talented, intelligent, caring & genuine person. He was also an elite performer that entertained a generation of fans & inspired a generation of aspiring performers.”

“Like those that passed before him,” they continued, “his legacy is secured by the memories that he bestowed upon us both as a wrestler and as a friend. He will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace, Grant.”

CZW on Twitter wrote the following: “This cuts too deep. Grant "Danny Havoc" Berkland. He was an inspiration to so many and a friend to all and our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. We can take a small comfort in knowing the entire wrestling community are sharing the same grief right now.”

"I can't put it into words right now...I'm just too heartbroken and devestated," Drake Wuertz wrote on Twitter. "I love you Grant... I'm gonna miss you so much brother."

Havoc wrestled for both CZW and GCW throughout his career, most recently taking part in GCW's tour of Japan earlier this year. He also appeared in The Wrestlers, a documentary series that recently aired on Vice.

His wife, Brianne, passed away in April.
