The Africa Wrestling Alliance received word this morning and is sorry to report that South African wrestling legend, Danie "Tornado" Brits, passed away last night.
Danie is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers to come out of South Africa. Cape Town wrestling fans will undoubtedly have fond memories of seeing him wrestle at the Good Hope Centre. He's had clashes against fellow wrestling greats such as Gama Singh and tag team bouts with partner Danie Voges (as The Flying Springboks) against the British Bulldogs.
AWA sends its condolences to Danie's family, friends and fans.
