After former WWE Superstar "The Ugandan Giant" Kamala (real name James Harris) released a video message Tuesday condemning Psaltis and Dan Mirade of Boston-based independent wrestling promotion Millenium Wrestling Federation for raising money on his behalf that he has yet to receive, another embezzlement allegation was levied towards the retired women's wrestler by one of her former colleagues.
Brian Heffron, who worked alongside Psaltis in Extreme Championship Wrestling as Blue Meanie, noted Wednesday on Twitter that two years ago, she launched a similar campaign fund meant to assist fellow alumnus Jerry Lynn with back surgery costs and was asked to donate an item for her to auction. Heffron, however, says Lynn was unaware of the campaign fund and noted that he never received money from Psaltis.
After posting a link to Harris' video message, Heffron wrote, "I always had a feeling "Wrestler's Rescue" was a scam since they aren't a registered charity AND wrestler's who they've collected for never got a dime that was supposed to get to them. 2 years ago I was asked to donate an item for auction for Jerry Lynn's back surgery. He told me he didn't know about and didn't get a A DIME."
He continues, "I always heard rumors "Wrestler's Rescue" ripped off MY IDOL Steve Williams. Then I heard straight from Jerry Lynn he never received a penny. I never really thought of speaking out until I saw the video Kamala made. It's a shame to collect money off off false pretenses."
In June, Psaltis set up the "Kamala Campaign Fund" and purported that money generated from the fund through auctions on their official website, WrestlersRescue.org (currently suspended by its hosting company), would assist Harris with "medical care, basic living costs and a myriad of other expenses as he transitions into a more handicapped-accessible world." After claiming in the video that he has received nothing from Wrestler's Rescue or Dawn Marie, Harris tells her to take any money she may have raised on his behalf "to Massachusetts and ram it up Dan Mirade's ass." He also wants Mirade to take any money he may have raised on his behalf "to New Jersey and ram it up Dawn Marie's ass."
