The Black And Brave Wrestling Academy, which is owned by WWE superstar Seth Rollins, has issued a statement following the tragic passing of student Jonah Snyder last week.

Snyder was just 20-years-old when he became ill during training before going into cardiac arrest and being pronounced dead at Genesis Medical Center, as Wrestling Inc has confirmed. 

As the site has also stated, when Rollins was asked to comment on the tragedy, he directed The Quad-City Times to following statement which was issued by The Black And Brave Wrestling Academy:

Whilst it is yet to be confirmed whether or not Rollins was at the Wrestling Academy at the time of the tragedy, it is considered unlikely given his hectic WWE schedule.

As The Quad-City Times has reported, trainers at The Black And Brave Wrestling Academy urged Snyder to take a break when he was unable to keep up, then called 911 when they knew something was not right. 

The site also stated that preliminary autopsy results proved inconclusive and that Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson was trying to figure out what happened in the days and hours prior to Snyder's passing.

For Seth Rollins and his Wrestling Academy, this is an unfortunate tragedy, and the previous Shield member will be hoping that the company will not suffer as a result of Jonah Snyder's passing.

Nonetheless, Jonah Snyder was a hugely devoted wrestling fan who gave his all to the business and his passing is a tragic event which took that away.

Our condolences go out to Jonah Snyder's family and friends and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
