Chris Hero (former WWE star Kassius Ohno) gave an update on the fundraiser for former ECW, WCW, and WWE star Tracy Smothers.
Hero announced tonight that the GoFundMe page has brought in over $12,000 (the goal was $10,000) and an additional $2,500 from Pro Wrestling Tee sales.
He tweeted, "I want to thank EVERYONE who donated or shared the Tracy Smothers Fundraiser. We brought in over $12K & an additional $2500 from the shirts."
As noted last year in December, Smothers revealed on social media that he was diagnosed with Stage III Lymphoma.
Chris Hero started the GoFundMe page on April 1, 2020, to support the former ECW World Tag Team Champion. He also added shirts to Pro Wrestling Tees for the fundraiser.
Chris Jericho, Mick Foley, Jimmy Jacobs, Scott D'Amore, Sami Zayn, Steve Corino, and Joey Ryan are just a few who donated.
