Here's your fight-size update for the morning of June 1, 2020:
- Drew Gulak wrote a lengthy thread on Twitter remembering Danny Havoc, who died this weekend.
Danny moved across the country in 2004 to follow his dreams. He wanted to be a deathmatch wrestler like Jun Kasai and Hayabusa! That's when I met him. We'd been close friends ever since.— Drew Gulak (@DrewGulak) June 1, 2020
Beyond that, as a human, he wast fun-loving, intelligent, creative, innovative, brave, and caring. Just an honest to goodness great guy. He had such a fun, dry, wicked, dark sense of humor and an amazing skill for art.— Drew Gulak (@DrewGulak) June 1, 2020
He put 100% of himself into everything he created. That's why on whatever platform he was on he shined. I could honestly go on and on, but I won't here. I want to spread some joy here because whenever I talk about my friend Danny Havoc, Grant, that's what it was.— Drew Gulak (@DrewGulak) June 1, 2020
For those wondering, the gift hasn't made it into the mail yet, it's still being assembled. I'm having it sent back to my place. I know he would have loved it.— Drew Gulak (@DrewGulak) June 1, 2020
