“A really important figure in the UK wrestling boom of the 2010s, an excellent wrestler, and a total gentleman too.
“Congratulations @EddieDennis1986 on a wonderful career, and enjoy your retirement!”
A number of British independent wrestling companies, including PROGRESS Wrestling and Kamikaze Pro would reflect on Dennis’ impact on the British wrestling scene.
