    RIP Don Dent

    IWA Entertainment is very sad in hearing former ring crew member Don Dent passed away last night. Don was head of IWA ring crew and staging for several years in the early 2000"s
    Don helped IWA become a true touring company with his trusty truck  spending many many countless hours driving the long highways before reaching the next town and show.
    Don also loved coffee every morning before check out of what every hotel we were at that night, you would always find Don going from room to room in search of coffee sachets for that day.
    Don was always the first at a show and the last to leave, his hard work was sometimes over shadowed in what is the chaos of a wrestling touring circus. For his hard work we thank him and i'm sure from all the current and former IWA crew members who knew and worked with him we will miss him.
    RIP Don Dent
