We have very sad news to report this morning as RJ Meyer has passed away after a battle with leukemia.

Meyer discovered that he had leukemia in March, 2019 as he went in for a routine checkup. He also underwent a bone marrow transplant back in October 2019.

His health diminished since then, and he lost that battle yesterday. Lio Rush, a man who Meyer trained, tweeted out yesterday in sadness as RJ Meyer was losing his battle.

Tara Meyer announced via the “Team #BruiserStrong” Facebook page that he passed away. MCW sent out a heartfelt message upon learning the news.


With a heavy heart the MCW family sends its condolences to the family and friends of RJ Meyer, better known as The Bruiser. The phrase “once in a lifetime” is thrown around a lot. In the case of The Bruiser, there will only be one. Ever. #BruiserStrong Forever

This is an incredibly sad time for everyone involved. Bruiser helped so many through his unique teaching, and his loss is one that many will mourn. Our thoughts are with RJ Meyer’s family, friends, and anyone else dealing with this sad situation at this time.
