Jaysin Strife Gone Too Soon

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 30, 2022

2022 finishes the year with a gut punch as we lose one of the good guys of the wrestling world as cancer has taken from us the man we have grown to love, Jaysin Strife.

I was a part of Missouri Wrestling Revival in the early days as we tried our best to get our name out there as the voice of Independent Pro Wrestling. We were excited to work with Harley Race’s World League Wrestling, Iowa’s red hot promotion 3XWrestling, Kansas City’s best, Central States Wrestling and thanks to Kari Williams we had the door open to the likes of MMWA-SICW. As we continued to grow more and more invites came to those that worked at MWR. One of the first people that encouraged us to support the local scene was Jaysin Strife. We had met him at CSW and he welcomed us to come out and check Pro Wrestling Phoenix in Iowa. The trips to Iowa was quite the drive but thanks to Strife’s hospitality MWR was able to have a lot of fun covering the promotion through photos, video promos and meeting new friends.

Throughout the years we were excited to see Jaysin wrestling around the Midwest and believed that with his talent that he was destined to be one of the top wrestlers of the world. Strife would wrestle a who’s who of top stars including the likes of AJ Styles, Davey Richards ,a 7 hour Iron Man match as well as having a match at WWE with Akira Tozawa.

Strife would later become a promoter under the banner of Magnum Pro Wrestling and a person that lifted his peers up as they reached their goal to be a pro wrestler. His ring work was flawless, his work ethic amazing and his talent was unmistakable. Yet, when I remember all the times of Jaysin, the memories that come to mind is his relationship to the fans. Wherever he went, he had that smile. That friendly welcome that he had for us at the beginning was genuine for everyone as he done the same for every fan I saw that he encountered.

I believe that as life passes by, all we have is our memories. We should do our best to make them as positive as we can. In that regard, Jaysin Strife was truly a World Champion as he touched many of us in and out of the ring.

My heart and condolences goes out to Jaysin Strife’s family and friends. May you rest in peace my friend .
