Earlier today, via numerous sources, it was announced that independent wrestling star Markus Crane passed away at the age of 33. There has been no official cause of death announced, but he passed away in his sleep overnight. Prior to his passing, Crane was making a return to independent wrestling following surgery on his skull. Since then, many independent companies and wrestlers have shared their thoughts and memories regarding Crane.
Crane took an extended sabbatical starting in December 2019 after an emergency room visit for a pre-existing injury resulted in doctors finding an infection in his skull that was leaking into his brain. Crane had an emergency craniotomy to remove a portion of his skull to allow treatment for the infection. A GoFundMe campaign had raised $22,350 to aid in his recovery

“It is with great sadness that GCW mourns the loss of Markus Crane. As a wrestler, Markus represented the spirit of GCW at its best.
