Today is a horrible day for the world of professional wrestling. In addition to the deaths of Brickhouse Brown, Nikolai Volkoff and Brian Christopher, we are sad to report that Tracy Caddell has passed away.
Caddell was as an independent wrestler and he is the father of Impact Wrestling star Trevor Lee. Caddell founded the OMEGA promotion and is credited for helping to start the careers of Matt and Jeff Hardy and Hurricane Helms.
I just learned that @TLee910 lost his father today as well. Trevor my friend, your Dad was incredibly proud of you. I’m very sorry for your loss.

Heartbroken by the passing of my friend, Tracy Caddell, father of Trevor Caddell. Tracy & I founded ECWF, which became OMEGA, together in 92. Tracy was physically limited after a bad accident in 93, so he eventually became @TLee910’s biggest supporter & promoter. RIP, my brother. pic.twitter.com/MvncKpdewL
