Florida's Team Vision Dojo issued the following sad news:

Independent wrestler Rex Bacchus has unfortunately lost his fight with cancer this morning around 5/6am. Rex started training training at the Team Vision Dojo at the beginning of 2015 and took right to the sport in all aspects.   Rex debuted on April 25, 2015 for I Believe in Wrestling at the Central Florida Fairgrounds during the Earthday Birthday event first losing a #1 contender's battle royal with Jody Kristofferson as the winner and later a rookie battle royal won by his Dreamboats tag team partner Ace Andrews.

He was one of the hardest workers inside and outside of the ring. Rex has been battling with cancer for sometime now. Things looked good when it went into remission but the cancer came back. He had been fighting and multiple benefit shows we're going on to help him.

Last month, Rex wrestled last match in the main event of a benefit event and beat "Cancer" in a Death Match. Unfortunately, he lost the last fight but was in a comfortable place in his home with loved ones. 

In his 3 1/2 years in the ring, Rex wrestled more than 200 matches, won multiple championships, and recently appeared wrestling on MLW. You will be missed greatly and always very much loved.
