Kris Travis is one of the best wrestlers in the UK. If not the world. He’s been in the ring with some of the biggest household names in the sport including WWE superstars Kevin Owens and Finn Balor. He’s had worldwide acclaim from the likes of Chris Masters & MVP.
But Kris’ biggest battle came from outside of the squared circle when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer after months of feeling unwell last year. Resigned to doctors predictions that he would never wrestle again after having most of his stomach removed, he focussed on the much bigger battle at hand of surviving and beating the disease.
“It took around 7 visits to doctors before my disease was finally found. They put a camera down my throat, and that was when they found the tumour.” said Travis, 31.
The professional wrestling world came together to support the superstar, who was forced to pull out of his opportunity with TNA Wrestling as part of British Bootcamp 2. Shows up and down the country were organised, with wrestlers working for free, special merchandise and DVDs being produced and fans donating money with all proceedings being donated to Kris’ cause.
He told us: “I can’t thank those people enough for what they did for me. The fans, the wrestlers, the promoters. In wrestling you’re often forgotten about very quickly, and life moves on.
