    My condolences…what a horrible thing to happen to someone so young. And this time of year makes it all too much harder. Ironically I was just writing a piece about New England independents in the 90s and Tony Rumble and the Savoldis and for some reason I kept thinking Kirk ran Big Time Wrestling out of the Northeast. He in fact was about as far removed from the area as one can get…BTW was based in Southern California. It’s just striking that I was just reading up on this gentleman and his company and days later he passed. Again, my condolences to his friends and family and extended family at Big Time Wrestling. RIP.
