TNA confirmed Thursday the death of U.K. independent wrestler Kris Travis, who died from cancer at the age of 32.
TNA announcer Jeremy Borash, who is a big part of TNA’s U.K. market, wrote an article on TNA’s website reflecting on Travis.
Borash noted that he met Travis two years ago when scouting talent for the second season of the “British Boot Camp” competition show on Challenge TV. Borash came across the “Shooting Star” Kris Travis and watched him reach the finals of the show.
“Unfortunately after that amazing performance in York Hall, we learned Kris would not be able to continue on the show, as he was about to go into the biggest fight of his life. In battling this sickness, he always stayed positive,” Borash wrote. “On the phone, we fantasy booked his comeback story for the third season of British Boot Camp. He joked that there is no way they could give it to someone else after this. His laughter, strength, and positivity were the best weapons he had fighting cancer.”
