The late WWE star's wife, Lindsay Seeders, took to Instagram on Friday, June 29 to announce the heartbreaking death of Matt.

The post featured a black&white picture of herself looking in love with Matt and with the caption, she revealed that her husband passed away at 3:30 A.M.

She wrote,

Today my love — my strong, sweet, beautiful love — took his last breath at 3:30 a.m. and went Home to be with Jesus…exactly one year after his brain surgery,

She further added,

You think you can be prepared for this when you know it’s coming, but you just can’t. The only person whose comfort I want right now is the one who can’t give it to me. I miss him so much already. I know where he is now is so much better, but it doesn’t change how much I miss him. It's so much harder than I even thought it would be.
