In recent months, the world of professional wrestling has been struck with multiple tragedies. Kevin Nash experienced the loss of his son, Tristan, while Jay Briscoe passed away in a car accident in January 2023. Adding to this heartbreak, Arn Anderson has revealed that his oldest son Barrett has also passed away, though the details surrounding his death are currently unknown.
The WWE Hall Of Famer took to Twitter and shared the heartbreaking news that his oldest young Barrett passed away. He was only 37 years of age and had his whole life ahead of him.
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.
Arn Anderson’s younger son Brock is also part of the AEW roster. In the past few months, Brock Anderson has formed a tag team with Brian Pillman Jr., whose father Brian Pillman was at one time also a Four Horseman along with Arn Anderson.
We are truly saddened by this news and would like to offer our deepest condolences to Arn Anderson and his family during this hard time. RIP.
