The wrestling world is in mourning today as Ryan Smile has passed away.

The native of Birmingham, England, was a mainstay on the U.K. scene and had success as a singles star. Smile held the RevPro Undisputed British Cruiserweight Champion in 2017, was the Over The Top No Limits Champion that same year for 182 days, and was also a three-times Relentless Division Champion in Kamikaze Pro.

Wrestlers have been paying tribute to Smile on social media in a wonderful display of respect:

No words. RIP Ryan Smile forever our All Day Star.

RIP Ryan Smile

So undeniably talented, such a major part of the early days of OTT, such a help to me in the beginning of my career and was a joy to be around. I hope you are at peace now ♥️

RIP Ryan Smile

I worked with Ryan on a lot of early @BWR_UK designs, he helped so much with the branding of the company.

Regardless of the controversy surrounding his professional life, every interaction with him was a pleasure.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Rest in Peace Ryan, thanks for everything.

The new wave of the BritWres scene wouldn't have had a compass to guide it without Ryan Smile.

Very shocked to hear of his passing and hoping he's at peace in that next life.

Absolutely gutting news tonight.

Thanks for everything you did for the scene and for helping out so many of the boys.

RIP Ryan Smile x

We had a match at @RevProUK after a hectic day on my behalf getting to the show, he was a great professional, we talked about the match for 10 minutes and went out there & had one of my best matches across the pond! RIP
