Independent wrestler and former WWE developmental talent Chris Hero accomplished a unique task this weekend, as he wrestled for over three hours in an effort to raise money for ALS. All in all, Hero raised $3440 for the cause, well over their goal.
Hero had pledged to wrestle 30 minutes for every $500 donated in a match that was referred to as an "infinity gauntlet." Whether Hero won or lost, a new opponent would come out and keep the match going. All in all, Hero had 17 matches within the time limits.
As time expired, Tarik, who had lost to Hero three times, came to the ring and asked for ten more minutes. Tarik himself donated $180 to make it happen, and drilled Hero with the Smash Wrestling Championship. This got Tarik DQ'd several times, but also led to him pinning hero numerous times to end the match.
The event took place at a wrestling school in Canada, and was recorded for those who donated money to the cause. Hero said last week on Wrestling Observer Live that he also expects a video on demand version to be made available to those interested.
Hero had previously said that his longest match was well over a decade ago against CM Punk. Hero formerly competed in WWE developmental as Kassius Ohno. He was released in November 2013.
