Last week was a tough one for the professional wrestling community.
First, everybody was hit hard with the news of the passing of the legendary Kevin Nash‘s son, Tristen Nash, who was only 26 years old. Just hours after the news broke of Tristen’s death, another death was announced with someone who was involved with pro wrestling, and it would be revealed to be someone who worked in the AEW backstage.
The Wrestling World Is Mourning Brian Muster And Tristen Nash
Not long after the GoFundMe page was launched, AEW ring announcer Justin Roberts would be the first to make a public comment about the passing of Brian Muster, taking to Facebook to express sadness over Brian Muster’s death.
“AEW is so much more than a wrestling show, it’s a family. Today, our family lost Lead Video Engineer Brian “Mongo” Muster who is a key, beloved member of our crew-a crew that shares an extraordinary bond. My heart aches today for Brian, his family and the entire crew/organization who are all devastated by his loss and I send my love to you all. A GoFundMe has been setup for anyone that would like to contribute. Brian was a staple at AEW and will be missed greatly by everyone.”

With Muster’s death, no cause has yet been revealed. Muster leaves behind his fiancee, as well as his two children. Set up by AEW Technical Producer Greg Werner to lend support towards the family of Muster, the GodFundMe page has already brought in over $80,000 from over 120 donations. The current goal is $125,000. Several talents from the AEW roster, as well as company staff, have already contributed.
Inside The Ropes would like to offer our condolences to Muster’s family and friends during this difficult time.
