Now in this business the hardest to do is to when it's time to hang it up and move on. But in the wrestling business even a fan we know that wrestlers don't always get a say in when they're in-ring careers end and sometimes they do. However, most people view you as very lucky if you can decide when you leave, and if you can stay away from the business.
Last week I was saddened to find out that top independent wrestler Tim Donst may never wrestle again after finding out that he has a tumor on his kidney. Now Tim was supposed to challenge for the AIW World Title and make his debut for CZW this past weekend, but you know Tim words might be better to use than my own for this so: "A few days ago I was rushed to the ER because I had collapsed with back pain. It felt as though I was getting stabbed with a hot knife. After several tests it was revealed that a tumor is located in my right kidney."

Bottom of FormBackground of Tim Donst:
I think Mick Foley said it best “I'm guessing not too many of you reading this are familiar with the name Tim Donst.” This plays into the idea that I have been echoing for years and that is an independent wrestling doesn’t get enough attention. Now I will admit that I have been a fan of Independent wrestling for years and I do know of Tim Donst, but I don’t know a lot about Mr. Donst. The company I most know Tim from is Chikara which is a company that are masters in my opinion of mixing the art comedic style of wrestling with the pure style of wrestling. I also know that Tim was trained by Indy wrestling legend “Lighting” Mike Quackenbush. Speaking of Chikara, Donst was at one point the Young Lions Cup in the company. This is basically a championship the company has for rookies or young wrestlers to fight for. Tim has also been apart various other promotions, including Absolute Intense Wrestling in Cleveland, OH and debuting for Dragon Gate USA in February of last year. Tim is also known for his amateur background which is a big part of his gimmick.
