It’s no secret that former TNA X-Division, ECW World and Ring of Honor World Champion Jerry Lynn is a good friend of mine and of this website. I’ve been good friends with him dating back to 1998 when Between The Ropes began on the radio.
Jerry is one of the best guys you will ever meet in and out of wrestling. Plus, he had a fantastic 25-year career putting on exciting wrestling matches that have thrilled so many of us.
Jerry has been experiencing chronic neck pain as well as pain in his right arm and numbness. The first procedure will be neck surgery to remove bones spurs, replace three degenerative discs, and fuse his vertebrae. He will be having this procedure done on Thursday, August 6.
Jerry has also been suffering with severe pain in his back for the last three months due to a bulging disc. He will likely need surgery for this as well, and he hopes to have that done as soon as possible following his neck surgery.
Jerry does have medical insurance, but he needs help in paying the $5,000 deductible. Plus, he will be out of work recovering for 2-3 months, which will put a hardship on his family, including his wife and young daughter.
It is time for us as a wrestling community to pull together and give back to Jerry after everything he has done for us, his fans.
To help cover all of his expenses, we are hoping to raise $15,000. Jerry would like to give anything over that amount to charity to help others in need. The charity he has chosen is the Nashville Rescue Mission which seeks to help the hurting of Middle Tennessee by offering food, clothing, and shelter to the homeless and recovery programs to those enslaved in life degrading problems.
This is our moment to give back and help one of the truly great guys. Please go to www.GoFundMe.com/helpjerrylynn and donate — any amount will help.
