The late wrestler’s wife also took the time to show gratitude to the doctors and nurses at the clinic for all they did. She also thanked some people at AEW for their continued support through this difficult time.

The WWE also released a statement on the day of Jon’s death noting how successful the late wrestler had been in his sports-entertainment career. The organization also noted how soft-spoken the star had been.

Jon played a soldier named Lachlan Allsopp in the movie and has since received numerous tributes.

Despite this, his presence allowed him to create incredible moments in the ring, according to the organization. The WWE ended its tribute by sharing its condolences with the late star’s family, fans, and friends.
