riley riggen has died, according to a statement posted online on May. 22, 2020.
We learned of the deceased through the following tribute posted on social media.,
One of the things I love about this sport is the people it brings into your life.
Our first Team Gotcha dual team was thrown together with current club kids, and kids from other nearby clubs who agreed to join, and battle at the Nuway Nationals in April 2018.
We couldn’t fill the HWT spot….but we were damn lucky to find one of Illinois’ toughest wrestlers that day at the duals!
Riley Riggen…whom all of you may know as “Big Rig” had joined the Team Gotcha Family that day in Lansing, MI.
It was his first dual with us but not his last as he traveled from Dixon many times to practice and wrestle at NuWay or the Grand River Rumble. He was a beast on the mat and had a heart of gold off the mat….
And today, with a heavy heart, we lost one of Gotcha’s finest wrestlers.
🖤❤ Rest Easy Champ ❤🖤
