We say goodbye to “Bad Bones” John Klinger.

John Klinger was one of the defining wrestlers at wXw for over a decade. He won all of the major titles at wXw and won both 16 Carat Gold and Shortcut to the Top. In his almost 450 matches in the wXw ring, he always worked hard and did his best to excite his fans.

At just 40 years old, John died far too early, shortly before his planned retirement. We wish his family and friends strength in this difficult time.

(Translated from German)

Klinger made his pro-wrestling debut in 2004, 20 years ago.

He established himself as a dominant star in promotions all over the world over the course of his career, including TNA Wrestling, where he wrestled a number of matches between 2009 and 2017.

Other notable promotions he wrestled for included PROGRESS, Evolve and ICW.

From everyone here at WrestleTalk, we extend our deepest condolences to the friends, family, and fans of “Bad Bones” John Klinger.
