Terrible news has emanated out of Seth Rollins' Black and Brave Wrestling Academy as 20-year-old student Jonah Snyder tragically died last week.
Rollins, formerly known as Tyler Black on the independent circuit, runs the school with Marek Brave - which explains the name - and has yet to comment on his student's untimely demise.
It is not known whether Rollins was at the academy at the time of the passing, but the WWE have been touring England and the Philippines over the past week and he appeared on a show the next day in Manilla, so it is very unlikely he was.

According to The Rock Island County Coroner located in Illinois, Snyder was just training with eight other students when he felt sick. The student was then instructed to sit down by a teacher, but he got worse and eventually went into cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead later at the hospital.
The police are still investigating the circumstances in which he died, but no fingers are currently being pointed at Rollins or Brave.
In fact, the trainer told Snyder to sit out upon learning he was sick and phoned an ambulance shortly after - it doesn't appear like there was much more they could have done.
It's a terrible blow for Rollins and his wrestling school. Sometimes, these things do happen, but the publicity isn't the kind that the former two-time WWE champion will welcome.
Hopefully, the Architect of the Shield's wrestling school will not suffer as a result of this tragic and unfortunate death and our condolences go out to the young wrestler's family.
