I’m sorry, maybe it is cynicism and cold hearted, but I’m honestly sick of pages requesting help for the medical bills, life bills, etc for former “stars” of WCW/ECW/WWE
I’m sorry they did not pay their taxes, lived outside their means, never planned for the future, or whatever the case may be…. esp those who were in it at it height of a turnaround making money and partying like it would never end. I get that they are good people at heart, but dammit so am I and LOTS of others from that time and we found a way to make a living, and we DID NOT make the money that they did!!!! I have put my body and health on the line too, and I know many others, we have had surgery and financial problems but we put our big girl panties on and figured it out!!!!!
Ok I’m done debating the right vs wrong of asking fans who already supported your career to also pay for your inability to now cover your expenses in life. Fans, wrestlers, promoters can all do as they wish, just as I can vent as I wish….
I, personally, find it embarrassing and sad. I know there are exceptions, but because of everyone jumping on the panhandler wagon, I’m sure those exceptions are being over looked
