The 64-year-old legend wrote, “Last night my family suffered a loss that should never he felt by any parent. Our older son Barrett passed away. I am struggling to write this. Tell those you love that you love them. Barrett was just 37.”

While Arn Anderson lost his elder son, Brock Anderson lost his elder brother and a close buddy. The demise of Barrett Anderson shocked the 26-year-old AEW star. Moreover, he penned a heartful and teary message on Instagram for his elder brother Barrett.

Brock mentioned still not being ready to accept that his brother was gone. Moreover, he shared his parents are in “absolute shambles” and his father, who he called “a man’s man, absolutely breaking down is tears”. Clearly, a parent should never go through a similar situation and Brock writes it’s the “most excruciating and cruel thing” he has ever witnessed.


The AEW wrestler also recalled a memory when he was seven years old and Barrett would drive him around. The past few years have been hard in the wrestling world and we all extend our support to the Anderson family. Additionally, the wrestling community expressed their solidarity with Arn Anderson and his family for their loss.
