A West Seneca wrestler who passed away earlier this year was honored by a WWE superstar on the national stage.

Black and Brave Wrestling Academy posted a picture on its Instagram account Tuesday showing WWE star Seth Rollins wearing a blue wrist band on Monday Night Raw in memory of Jonah Snyder. Raw took place in Buffalo on Monday.

Snyder, just 20-years-old, died in September, after he collapsed while training to be a pro wrestling at the academy in Illinois. Black and Brave wrestling is run by Colby Lopez, who goes by Seth Rollins in the world professional wrestling.
