The 25-year-old died on Saturday after a traffic accident.
The New Yorker wrestled for both House of Glory, CZW and Gamechanger Wrestling.
His trainer, Amazing Red, tweeted: “I just can’t. I don’t understand life sometimes. I’m gonna try and pull it together for you today. I just want to see you! Talk to you! I’m sorry. I love you Matty.”
WWE superstar Curtis Axel led the tributes to the late star.
He tweeted: “My thoughts are with The @HOGwrestling locker room, students, friends, & family. Very sad news.”
All Elite Wrestling tag team Santana and Ortiz dedicated their Full Gear match on Saturday night to Travis.
Santana tweeted: “Love you bro. Tonight is for you.”
A host of fans also paid their respects on Twitter with @arieslopez saying: “Sad to hear the news of matt travis he was a great guy in the ring saw him at @combatzone wish i could have seen him @HOGwrestling #rip #MBK #hog.”
And the @3TPod: “Our hearts go out to the @HOGwrestling family & @AmazingRed1 through this extremely difficult time. We can’t imagine what everyone is going through. #RIP Matt Travis #MBK.”
Back in January, Travis spoke to Vice about how wrestling was his “lifeline”.
Love you bro.

He said: “Wrestling is my lifeline. Every night I come home and hear how someone got shot… like, what if I’m next? But with wrestling I feel like, finally, I have a shot.”
I just can't.
I don't understand life sometimes.
I'm gonna try and pull it together for you today.
I just want to see you! Talk to you!
