For the love of Jerry Lynn

Sometimes wrestlers are babyfaces outside the ring. I’ve highlighted stories of a few on this blog. Sometimes, it’s the fans that step up to do something good for someone they care about.

It’s no secret that many professional wrestlers do what they do without the benefit of insurance. They’re in a high risk profession, and save for the few who can afford it (or get it through another job), most wrestlers do not have the resources for major medical treatment. When word got out about Jerry Lynn’s medical needs this week, friends and fans responded. Big time. What a way to say thank you for a lifetime of sacrifice in the ring.

Wrestlers don’t make a lot of money. Even in the WWE, many of the stars we love struggle to pay the bills. That’s why it’s so important to hit the gimmick tables during live shows to buy a DVD, a T-shirt, or an autograph. It means as much to them as it will to you. Maybe even more.
