We reported yesterday that AJ Styles recently took time out of his busy traveling schedule to stop and take a picture with young Nicky Bongiovanni at an airport over Christmas before his flight to attend his Grandmothers funeral. You can read a full account of how it happened below:
It now transpires that Nicky sadly passed away when the 11-year-old was rushed to the ICU for lack of oxygen to his brain in what is believed to be a freak accident.
The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical and funeral costs. You can donate by clicking here.
It's with a broken heart that I tell you Nicky passed this afternoon, shortly after @AJStylesOrg's phone call to my uncle.— Fallon Prinzivalli (@iamqueenfal) January 31, 2017
