RIP Casey Michael

It is with a heavy heart that I pass along the news that Casey Michael, owner of Squared Circle Sirens and one of the biggest proponents of women’s wrestling among internet writers, has passed away today after a long illness.  He was only 26.

Rather than tell you how much he meant, let me share these statements from Twitter: <– friend of the BOD Joe Gagne <– TalkSPORT Wrestling correspondent Alex McCarthy <– WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella <– NXT star Jake Atlas <– Independent Wrestling TV’s official account <– Impact Wrestling’s official account <– Lucha Underground wrestler Vinnie Massaro <– former WSU champion Brittany Blake <– WWE star Carmella <– Southern wrestling promoter and superfan Mike “Papa” Hales <– SHIMMER star Shazza McKenzie

As the official Squared Circle Sirens announcement put it: “His contributions to women’s wrestling and the friendships made will live on in his memory forever.

Rest in peace, Casey, and God bless you for all you did for wrestling.
