WWE Hall of Famer and AEW star Arn Anderson has broken the tragic news that his son Barrett has passed away at the age of just 37.
The wrestling world has not had to look far for tragedy in the last few months with the passing of Kevin Nash’s son Tristan and the tragic death of Jay Briscoe in a car accident in January 2023. However, there is more heartache being felt as Arn Anderson shared the news that his eldest son Barrett has passed away. There is no information at this time as to how this tragedy happened.
The ARN Show (Anderson’s podcast) social media account posted the message revealing the awful news:
“Last night my family suffered a loss that should never he felt by any parent. Our older son Barrett passed away. I am struggling to write this. Tell those you love that you love them. Barrett was just 37.”
