CZW alumnus Danny Havoc has passed away at the age of 34. According to GCW, Grant “Danny Havoc” Berkland passed away over the weekend. His passing comes just under two months after his wife Brianne Morrow passed away. She died on April 4th of heart failure.
Havoc grew up in Cylinder, Iowa and wrestled with his friends in his family’s barn. He joined CZW in 2005 and made his in-ring debut later that year in Tournament of Death 4’s student battle royal. He was a regular in CZW, including a long feud with DJ Hyde that culminated in Havoc defeating Hyde in April of 2006. He was also a multi-time champion for the promotion.
CZW and others took to Twitter to react to the news, which you can see below:
