As we’ve noted, former WWE Million Dollar Champion Virgil has been diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer.

A fundraiser has been set up to help raise money for Virgil’s medical bills. As of this writing, more than $8,000 has been raised towards the cause.

Virgil has shared the following note on the fundraiser page:

I have two tests one in March 17th and March 25th. As I have posted, I have had mri and others procedure. I have spent close to $5721 on these the next two comes close to $3400. I would be more than glad to sign, do a cameo video and much more. I receive NO help from WWE who, based on all the chairshots, blows caused this. To those that have helped I am truly thankful and blessed.

So you understand my situation better I get $862 a month social security, a friend allows me to stay for $200 at a place he has. With Food and utilities and doctor visits pretty much puts me in hole. I have had to do few signings to help but been hard. This is Not a Gimmick nor a stunt, this is real and it is hard to have to ask for help.

As seen in the screengrab below, AEW star Chris Jericho donated a sum of $1,500 on Sunday.

Chris Jericho has a history of generously helping pro wrestlers at the time of need. Last April, he donated $2,500 to Steve “Mongo” McMichael’s GoFundMe campaign, which was set up to help the former Super Bowl Champion in his battle with Lou Gerhig’s Disease. In May 2019, Jericho donated $1,500 towards a fundraiser to help WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham. In September 2016, Jericho donated $3,000 to help out former WWE star Rico Constantino. Last year, he donated $2,500 to help the family of the Uber Eats driver who was murdered in Washington, DC.
