On Friday evening, news came out that Chris Wilson who wrestled as ‘Justice Pain’ had died at the age of 41.

His passing was first announced by Combat Zone Wrestling, which was the promotion he spent most of his career wrestling for and trained at their wrestling school.

Wilson won the CZW tag titles three times, including once with his brother Nick Gage, who was also a regular with the promotion throughout the late ‘90s and 2000s. The brothers wrestled as the H8 Club during this era.

Wilson was a five-time CZW heavyweight champion winning it for the first time in September 2000 from Lobo. His last reign took place in December 2006 defeating Eddie Kingston at Cage of Death VIII and dropped it the last time to Ruckus in July 2007.

He did work several dates for XPW in 2003 including a feud with Supreme and several matches with Chris Candido.

After dropping the CZW title in 2007, Justice Pain finished his career wrestling several dates that year with the Philadelphia-based Pro Wrestling Unplugged promotion

We send our condolences to the family and friends of Chris Wilson.


It’s sad to see how the year started.
