Havoc had wrestled for Game Changer and Combat Zone Wrestling

Independent wrestling star Danny Havoc has passed away, as first announced by Game Changer Wrestling. 

In a statement, the organisation said: 

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, 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

Havoc wrestled primarily for the hardcore Philadelphia-based Combat Zone Wrestling between 2005 and 2017, where he was a two-time Ultraviolent Underground Champion, two-time World Tag Team Champion and a World Junior Heavyweight Champion, before retiring. 

He had recently come out of retirement and worked a handful of matches for GCW, the latest of which was on February 15 2020. 

Many of Havoc's friends, including WWE star Drew Gulak, took to social media to share their memories of the performer. 

Havoc's wife Brianne had died of heart failure less than two months ago. The cause of Havoc's death has not been disclosed.  

The thoughts of Cultaholic are with Havoc's family, friends and fans at this time.
