MLW is saddened by the passing of Chris Sims (professionally known as Dr. Rex Bacchus) following a long illness.
On behalf of everyone at Major League Wrestling, our thoughts and love go out to Chris and his loved ones.
I’m very sad to share that Chris Sims, a member of our @MLW family has passed away. Chris loved wrestling. It helped keep him going during his battle with cancer. My thoughts are with Chris and his loved ones. Rest in power, Dr Rex. You are sorely missed.
