Our thoughts are with WWE star Dana Brooke, whose boyfriend, bodybuilder Dallas McCarver passed away at just 26 years old. She released her first statement since his death Tuesday night:

“So here it goes, I’ll try & be short– aug 22 the lord received another angel, who happens 2 be my LIFE- MY Dallas the one WHO ONLY UNDERSTOOD ME! I can speak on the behalf of his family– the love and support you all are showing for him & us is OVERWHELMING!! Dallas would always tell me “just keep swimming his little pengutimous (hippo mixed with penguin)” he would tell everyone the same — just keep swimming, keep moving through life and he will be your angel above!! He had a way with making people laugh!! Dallas was an exceptional body builder, but I didn’t see him for that .. I saw him for HIM AND HIS HEART!! He is the best individual I have ever met– my ying to my yang.. finished my sentences and knew what I was thinking before I’d say it!! We had it all figured out – new WWE superstar “Big country” & “country strong” mixed tag team!!! — you were my life , you are my life, I still smell u and feel ur presence, NEVER LEAVE MY SIDE — like I have always asked; and u said NO NEVER Mrs. McCarver — I had your back and I knew you had mine!! Your our angel– STAYED TUNED FOR A NONPROFIT I have started — and as well as a memorial service as details will be out soon! #rip#myangel #mydallas #dallasmccarver #dteam #raw #ifbb #bodybuilding #losingalovedone #myheart#wwe #justkeepswimming #soulmate #swolemate #bestfriend #love #pray #faith #staystrong


Brooke also shared another note on the newly launched Dallas McCarver Foundation helping underprivileged children on GoFundMe.

“PLEASE READ REPOST AND SUPPORT AND WATCH! DALLAS MCCARVER FOUNDATION – helping under privileged children – children’s homes – and starting a ministry for children ! This is something he loved ANYONE WHO KNOWS DALLAS KNOWS HIS  for children!

Please spread the word– #nonprofit #ifbb #giveback #wwe #raw #dallasmccarver #fondation #bekind#kidsarelife #support LINK IN BIO!!!!!”

His passing was confirmed by his employer RedCon1Official.

He was reportedly found in the kitchen, facedown and not breathing. He apparently had choked on food and his training partner cleared the blockage, but was unsuccessful in giving him CPR.

Brooke appeared on Monday Night Raw and had even posted a #MCM Instagram post with him.

McCarver shared an Instagram post less than 24 hours ago with him lifting:

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brooke at this time.
