Sad news from overnight as Danny Havoc, real name Grant Berkland, passed away at the age of 34.
GCW confirmed the news of the CZW alumnus. Details have not yet been revealed. His death comes less than two months after his wife Brianne Morrow passed away. She died on April 4th of heart failure.
Havoc grew up in Cylinder, Iowa joined CZW in 2005. He soon took to the company’s extreme deathmatch style, having two runs with the CZW Ultraviolent Underground Championship, one with the World Junior Heavyweight Championship, and two with the promotion’s World Tag Team Championships.
He was also the winner of Tournament of Death VII in 2008 and Tournament of Death XII in 2013. He announced his retirement at CZW’s Tournament of Death 16 in 2019 to do a benefit show for H20 Wrestling, but came out of retirement for GCW in February.
CZW joined GCW in paying tribute to Berkland, followed by several of his pro wrestling friends and peers.
On behalf of everyone at Team Hooked On, our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Grant.
