It’s with a heavy heart we inform you that our beloved friend and @SCsirensowner Casey Michael (@ifyouseekcasey) has passed away at age 26. His contributions to women’s wrestling and the friendships made will live on in his memory forever. We love you, Casey.
Casey operated Squared Circle Sirens since 2014, focusing on news concerning women’s wrestling promotions and performers. The twitter and website had been silent for the past two months, with the last story posting June 26. Casey had been active on Twitter with his final tweet written August 31. Squared Circle Sirens was often cited as a highly reliable source by those in wrestling media.
He was a strong advocate of women’s wrestling, using his platform to elevate performers as well as call out companies’ shortcomings. Beyond being an outstanding journalist, Casey was a friend to those he tried to shine a spotlight on.
Casey had been fighting an intestinal illness for the past 2 years, and had recently detailed his worsening condition publicly. One of his final tweets read simply: “I have the best people in the world as my friends.i (sic) can’t thank you all enough for your kindness. Love you all.”
As a friend and fellow journalist, I am confident in saying that his impact was tremendous and his passion for women’s wrestling will leave an irreplaceable void in the wrestling space. I will miss our conversations, and seeing the outpouring of support from the industry, I know I am not alone.
RIP Casey ❤️ Remembered and loved forever and always. N https://t.co/gItQqHtMFD
