• Indy Wrestler Passes Away At Age 35

Indy wrestler Rex Bacchus has passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was 35 years old.

Rex began his wrestling training at Team Vision Dojo back in 2015. Since then, he wrestled over 200 matches, won multiple Titles and made a recent appearance on Major League Wrestling.

In his last match, he defeated “Cancer” in a Deathmatch at a charity event.

Below is what Team Vision Dojo posted about Rex’s passing on Instagram:

“It’s always incredibly hard to lose someone, especially at a young age and when it’s an incredible person. You were always there and a huge part of the team. Rex came to the Dojo in 2015, after years in comedy, looking to break into the wrestling industry.

Rex worked extremely hard & was there for anyone that needed him. You will be missed greatly, loved & always remembered. #RIPRex”
