We, sadly, have yet another death to report. Tracy Caddell, father of Impact and other indie promotions, has also passed away. Caddell was as an independent wrestler and he is the father of Impact Wrestling star Trevor Lee. Caddell founded the ECWF promotion with Matt which eventually became OMEGA. He also helped start the careers of Matt and Jeff Hardy and Hurricane Helms. Matt tweeted out the following:
Heartbroken by the passing of my friend, Tracy Caddell, father of Trevor Caddell. Tracy & I founded ECWF, which became OMEGA, together in 92. Tracy was physically limited after a bad accident in 93, so he eventually became @TLee910’s biggest supporter & promoter. RIP, my brother. pic.twitter.com/MvncKpdewL

Of course, our thoughts are with all the families and friends of those who’ve passed away today.
Botch Take: I sincerely hope this is the last of it. Horrific day for professional wrestling for sure.
