'Royal Stud' Adam Windsor dead at 41: WWE wrestler passes away after heart issues04/23/2022
WRESTLING star Adam Windsor died at 41 years old on the morning of April 21.
Tributes were paid by fellow wrestlers to the star, who had been suffering heart problems, according to specialist outlet SLAM Wrestling.
Wrestling commentator Corey Graves tweeted: "I’m truly gutted by the news about Adam Windsor. We finally reconnected after many years, at WrestleMania in Dallas. See you down the road, my friend. Positive vibes to Adam’s friends and family."
He was born Adam Bryniarski on January 17, 1981, in Coventry, England, and knew from a young age he wanted to be a wrestler.
“I said to my Mom and Dad that that was what I wanted to do when I grew up, but obviously, being eight years old, I had no real idea of what life was about. But I knew then that wrestling was all that I wanted to do,” Bryniarski said in an interview with his hometown paper, according to SLAM Wrestling.
Bryniarski studied judo at Neil Adams’s gym.

Neil was the brother of pro-wrestler Chris Adams, who died in 2001.
A knee injury ended Bryniarski's judo career at age 15, which led him to start wrestling.
He later married Chris Adams’ oldest daughter, Jade, and they had three children, SLAM Wrestling reported.
"I think wrestling is the toughest sport I have tried. People go on about how it is fake but you should see how fit these guys are. They are just superior athletes. We have to train every day and nobody drinks or smokes," he told the paper.
At six feet tall and 230 pounds, the newly named Adam Windsor was promoted by trainer Dory Funk Jr. and his wife.
“Adam Windsor is 19 years old and a very mature wrestler. He will be with us for a while. He’s been training with us for almost 2 years now. He’s just a super fine wrestler. Already he’s what we call a ring general, takes it upon himself to never have a bad match," Funk Jr. said in 2001.
In 2005, after leaving the Funkin’ Dojo, Adam Windsor disappeared from the wrestling scene for several years.
The wrestler was involved with health and fitness, once helping out on an MTV show about weight loss.
