An Israeli pro wrestler, Amit Magnezi, has reportedly been killed in the October 7th Hamas attack on Israel.
In a translated Facebook post, Magnezi’s trainer, Lidor Bushary, posted the news:
Still can’t believe that Amit is no longer with us. You came to me for training at the age of 14, you were a beautiful boy, so talented and good-hearted that only a few have settled in. You have always been with me, deep in my heart. I will never forget our last conversation, just over a month ago you comforted me about Leiger’s passing, which just shows how good and sensitive you were. Keep loving all of us up there like we love you down here. Heart is broken, soul is aching. 💔
I trained Amit since he was 14. Amit was murdered in cold blood on October 7th at the Nova Festival massacre in Israel.
Rest in peace my boy, you’ll always be in my heart.
The Superstars of David Instagram account, which promotes wrestling’s ties to Judaism, posted a thoughtful note:
